Amazon is asking for extra money for Dolby Vision and Atmos under Prime Video

Amazon is asking for extra money for Dolby Vision and Atmos under Prime Video

In several countries, Amazon recently started a premium subscription to Amazon Prime Video, the company's streaming service. Users have noticed that Amazon has made some major modifications, eliminating various benefits of the standard subscription.

With the introduction of the premium subscription, the standard subscription to Amazon Prime Video will be filled with ads. If you don't want to see ads, you can upgrade to a premium subscription. The Standard subscription previously offered the highest possible quality, including 4K, Dolby Atmos, and Dolby Vision. However, that has now changed, because Atmos and Vision can now only be heard and seen with a premium subscription that costs an additional €3 per month.

With the standard subscription and ads, you can still access content in 4K, HDR10, HDR10+, and 5.1 channel audio. Dolby standards are moving to the premium subscription. These amendments have already been implemented in the United States and Germany, among other countries. In the Netherlands and Belgium, only one subscription is currently available, without ads and with all the above criteria. It's still unclear when Amazon will implement the changes here as well.
