Last year in December, it was reported that Amazon would start incorporating advertisements within Prime Video soon.  Amazon Prime users in the US reportedly received communication from Amazon informing them that the standard Amazon Prime plan would show ads while streaming movies and TV shows. The company had initially announced the move in September last year and had stated that it would go into effect in early 2024.
