When it comes to free-TO-play games, Amazon has proven a strong contender, with its Amazon Prime program, its Prime Instant Video service and its $30-a-month Prime Music program all providing a great mix of casual games with premium content.
For some, however, the competition is not quite as fierce.
As Amazon is expanding its streaming service, which launched in December, the company is looking to push its new video service, Prime Instant Videos.
This service will give users access to up to 30 hours of Prime Video streaming at no extra cost, but it’s not all about streaming.
The company is also introducing a new feature called “FreeTime,” which will allow users to watch and stream movies, TV shows, documentaries, and other content from a variety of different sources.
For some, FreeTime is more of a novelty than a true extension of the service.
But others will not miss the money.
In fact, a new survey by The Wall Street Journal shows that Amazon’s free-trial offers are making up for the fact that it is selling more subscriptions than its competitors.
The study, which surveyed more than 200 subscribers in the US, found that users who were members of Amazon Prime paid an average of $6.88 per month, while those who were non-members of the Prime program paid an estimated $5.60 per month.
The average payouts were slightly higher for the $30 Prime subscription, but the $5 subscription was the only one where users paid more than the average.
Amazon Prime has also proven to be a lucrative option for those looking to buy more games.
The WSJ report found that the company’s Prime-to-$10-per-game-purchase program had generated $9.3 billion in revenue for the company over the past year.
The WSJ reported that the program has also been successful in enticing younger gamers.
It reported that Amazon had seen a 65 percent increase in its Prime-user-adults age group over the previous year, which is a sign of how lucrative the subscription-based offering has been.
While the WSJ survey may not have been enough to convince Amazon that it has a strong enough subscriber base to make the move to the free-games segment, the data does show that Amazon is on track to surpass Google as the number one platform when it comes the subscription video game streaming service.
