Amazon Prime Video now available globally on Xbox One

Microsoft has announced that Xbox One owners in Canada, Mexico, France, Italy, Spain, and India can now download the Amazon Prime Video app from the Microsoft Store and start streaming on Xbox One. The Xbox expansion follows Prime Video's global launch to more than 200 countries and territories at the end of 2016.

Amazon Prime Video offers up a pretty extensive streaming catalog, though it may be fairly limited in certain countries and territories. Still, Amazon's originals, like "The Man in the High Castle," "Transparent," and "The Grand Tour," will now be available to check out on Xbox One in more markets. This also follows the official launch of 4K content on Amazon Prime Video for Xbox One earlier in 2017, which, of course, will also be available on the Xbox One X with its launch later in November.

Prime subscribers should be able to download the Amazon Prime Video app from the Microsoft Store on Xbox One now to get started. And if you haven't tried Prime Video, you can sign up at Amazon to try the service for $9 per month. Microsoft says that customers in New Zealand and Australia can sign up for $2.99 per month for six months, before jumping to $5.99 per month after. Brazilian subscribers can sign up for $7.90 per month for the first six months before increasing to $14.90 after.
