As the nights grow longer and the days grow cooler, binge season is nearly in full swing, and Amazon Prime Day is finally here to help subscribers score the best streaming devices with major discounts. The annual sale, which marks the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season, will offer plenty of deals on streaming devices that will allow Netflix users to utilize the service.
Initially scheduled for July, Amazon Prime Day had to be pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic, with the 48-hour sale now taking place Tuesday, Oct. 13 through Wednesday, Oct. 15. To access the sales, shoppers will need to make sure that they have an Amazon subscription, which costs $119 annually or $12.99 per month. Along with allowing members access to all of the best Prime Day deals, this subscription will also allow them access to a long list of movies and TV shows to stream on Amazon Prime Video, though those hoping to fit in a few Netflix binges will also be in luck this Prime Day.
Among the items being discounted are plenty of streaming devices and TVs. Of course, just as you will need a subscription to access these Amazon Prime Day deals, you will also need a subscription to access Netflix. Currently, there are three subscription tiers, with the basic plan costing $8.99 per month, the standard costing $12.99 per month, and the premium costing $16.99 per month. Below are the best deals that will allow you to binge Netflix.
