Great news South Africa! Amazon Prime Video will now start billing in Rand value instead of Euros or Dollars. With the fluctuating exchange rate, this is a welcomed change.
At the rate of R79pm, you can keep all the usual functionality that you had before which includes access to Amazon Twitch where you can get apps and games as well.
Before, users saw bills as high as R100 after two years of economic problems hindering the Rand’s strength. Now, not only will the fee be lower but also more stable.

Children of Men (2006)
Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
