Amazon Video vs Netflix?
We personally prefer the range of shows and movies on Netflix, but we also have a few shows on Prime which we really like such as The Boyz, The Expanse and Mr Robot (to name a few). Due to the bundle of things you get with Amazon Prime we would definitely recommend it as an addition to Netflix. Such as to watch specific shows and movies, read Kindle books, as well as to get free shipping on shop purchases.
Once your trail has finished if you wish to continue the service costs £7.99 per month ($12.99 US). Of course depending on where you are the price will be slightly different and should be in your own currency.
