Amazon Prime


All of us are familiar with Amazon and its paid program Amazon Prime. Amazon Prime provides various benefits to its members such as an assured two-day delivery on all orders and also unlimited access to the best music, movies, and television shows.

In return for an annual fee, the member gets all benefits that come as a part of the Amazon Prime Programme. 

Amazon Prime Video is a service that was launched in 2006. It is a video-on-demand service that is exclusively available to Amazon Prime members. 

It certainly has a lot of fresh and quality content; with TV shows and new movies that have received a lot of positive criticism from not just viewers but from critiques as well. 

Amazon Prime video has been on almost all major platforms like Android TV and Chromecast for a while now. The service has even been available on Xbox One since 2017.

However, for Windows 10, there was no application, and the only way Windows 10 users could access Amazon Prime was through a web browser.


For a while now, we have been hearing that Amazon has been working on an app that would let users of Windows 10 devices access Amazon Prime Video.

There are not a lot of  Universal Windows Platform (UWP), but as Netflix has demonstrated, the platform is excellent for streaming video applications. 

As per sources, the app was being developed for some time now.

The features of Amazon prime video UWP are a lot like:

  • Downloading videos so that they can be viewed even when offline
  • Buying or renting new movies and TV series
  • Prime members being able to subscribe to more than 150 premium and specialty channels
  • Option to pay for just the channels that they require
  • Cancellation at any time
  • Information and trivia relating to the show being streamed

The app is in the final stage of completion and is almost all set to be released.  

The new UWP or Universal Windows Platform version is in the Microsoft store now in a preview form. We can even download the app but we encounter a problem eventually.

When we try logging in, we receive an error message.

This is because Amazon has not yet officially launched the app and even a normal search in the Microsoft store fails to get us the app. However, the app is on the store hints at a launch that could happen quite soon.
