Is there anyone out there who still doesn't have Amazon Prime yet? If so, what are you doing with your life? At any rate, for those of us who have had Amazon Prime for quite some time, are going to notice a pretty major change beginning this week.

When it comes to Amazon Prime, there are loads of sweet perks. Not the least of which is the free speedy shipping that comes with almost all items. Another one of the perks is Amazon Prime Video where you can watch movies and shows ad-free.

Sadly, Amazon Prime has announced a major change to its streaming service... that is unless you decide you want to pay extra per month to keep it. According to an article published by USA Today, Amazon Prime has announced that they are getting rid of ad-free movies and tv shows for its Prime customers.

Basically, in a nutshell, Amazon said that it is no longer offering ad-free movies and shows for customers that pay the current Prime rate. Instead, if users want to continue enjoying Amazon Prime Video completely ad-free, users will now need to up their subscription level by an additional $2.99 per month.

Currently, the subscription costs $14.99 per month. This means that if you're a user who wants to maintain your ad-free video streaming, you'll need to increase your subscription level to $16.99 per month.

What say you? Is it worth it to increase what you're already paying monthly, will you continue to watch just with ads, or do you not really ever use the Amazon streaming platform anyway?
