This will allow us to continue investing in compelling content and keep increasing that investment over a long period of time."

Will you pay for "commercial-free" Amazon Prime Video?

We will also offer a new ad-free option for an additional $2.99 per month* that you can sign up for here. So what will you do? This change will affect the entire nation, will you keep the ads, pay the extra, or possibly change streaming services?
