Amazon’s Prime Video service launched in Ireland back in December of last year. With the introductory pricing of €2.99 / month for the first six months it’s hard to knock the service’s value, though, like NetFlix when it launched the range of TV shows and movies is a little lacking. Amazon, however, have announced that they are expanding the catalogue of content in the Irish market.
Here’s a couple of the highlights of what’s been added:
- Outlander – 3 seasons
- Vikings – 4 seasons
- Ray Donovan – 3 seasons

If you’re considering cutting the cable and getting away from Sky or one of their competitors it’s becoming increasingly easier, though we still don’t have quite as many choices as they do on the other side of the Atlantic (or even across the channel when you’re looking at Amazon Video!)
