Amazon Prime is giving you seven freebies this month as adverts introduced

Amazon Prime is giving you seven freebies this month as adverts introduced

No one wants adverts when watching your favourite TV shows and films, but this might lessen the blow

As adverts are introduced for the first time ever in the United Kingdom on Amazon Prime Video, subscribers are stumbling across another hidden gem that's entirely free.

The move to introduce adverts has not gone down too well with subscribers, with ads now being played when watching content on the streaming platform.

Subscription costs aren't going up if you accept the adverts. But if you want to get rid of them? It's time to pay more.

Amazon had said adverts are necessary for the future of its streaming business, with the revenue from them allows it to 'continue investing in compelling content and keep increasing that investment over a long period of time'.

The company, founded by billionaire Jeff Bezos, says you can expect 'limited advertisements that run before and during playback'.

It wont be the case for any content you'd paid additionally to rent or buy via Prime Video.

It's not the first time Amazon has included content with ads.

Amazon Freevee is a free streaming service offered by Prime Video, full of thousands of free films and shows, which has always included ads you can't skip.

And speaking of free, subscribers are stumbling across another free service that is almost hidden as part of signing up to Prime.

Unbeknown to many, if you have Amazon Prime you can link your account to another service called Prime Gaming at no additional cost.

It means you can download free video games every single week.

February alone will see Prime Gaming customers get seven games for free.

Available this month is the iconic Fallout, originally released back in 1997.

It's considered one of the greatest role-playing video games of all time, and holds a 89/100 rating on review aggregator website Metacritic.

Fallout sees gamers explore a post-apocalyptic universe after a global nuclear war between China and the United States of America.

You start the game inhabiting a nuclear fallout shelter before going out and exploring the barren wasteland.

It's not the only game up for grabs this month.

Here's the full list and when they're available from

  • 1 February - Fallout and Breakout Recharged
  • 8 February - Missile Command: Recharged
  • 15 February - Criminal Archives: Alphabetic Murders - Collector's Edition and Tempest 4000
  • 22 February - Blade Assault
  • 29 February - Gravitar: Recharged

Usually when a premium subscription ends, users lose access to the free games that come with it. PlayStation Plus is a prime example of this.

But Prime Gaming says: "You keep all games added to your Amazon Games App and other gaming benefits delivered to your game, subject to any game developer rules or policies that apply to the content."

Many of the full games offered by Prime Gaming are for PC only, but occasionally they are available for other platforms such as PlayStation or Xbox.

As well as free games, Prime Gaming gives you additional Twitch benefits where available.

This includes a Twitch channel subscription, where you can subscribe every month to a partner or affiliate channel to access exclusive channel-specific subscriber perks that come with a regular subscription such as chat privileges, emoticons, badges, and more.
