Amazon says over 175 million Prime members streamed content in the past year

According to CEO Jeff Bezos, streaming hours were up more than 70 per cent year-on-year

As part of its Q1 2021 financial report, Amazon has given an update on the number of customers using its Prime Video service.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos revealed that “as Prime Video turns 10, over 175 million Prime members have streamed shows and movies in the past year, and streaming hours are up more than 70 per cent year-over-year.”

In comparison, Netflix had about 204 million worldwide subscribers at the end of 2020, with Disney Plus now above 100 million.

In fact, the latest number from Amazon is slightly down on the 200 million Prime subscribers the company claimed to have signed up earlier this month.

Bezos added that Amazon Web Services now has a $54 billion annual run rate. “We love Prime Video and AWS, and we’re proud to have them in the family,” he said.
