Amazon introduces 499 FreeTime Unlimited subscription for Kindle Fire

first_imgAmazon has this week introduced a new subscription service that even Prime customers will want to consider signing up for. That is, if they have kids. It’s called Kindle FreeTime Unlimited, and forms an extension of the (free) Kindle FreeTime feature available to Kindle Fire owners to filter content for children.The draw of upgrading to FreeTime Unlimited is the amount of content on offer, which includes books, games, movies, TV shows, and apps from Disney, Marvel, Nickelodeon, PBS, and many more. Access to that content is unlimited, but also limited to the Kindle Fire tablets. That means if you own either Kindle Fire HD or the Kindle Fire Best Price at Amazon released this year you can sign up. The Kindle Fire introduced last year won’t be compatible.Once signed up, access is granted via a FreeTime app that can filter content based on age and gender. Amazon is also promising the ability to filter content further in the near future, so parents can block certain content beyond Amazon’s age-verified recommendations. A profile can be created for each child for tablet sharing, and you can also set usage limits based on type of content or time of access.How much FreeTime Unlimited costs depends on how many kids you have and whether you already have Amazon Prime. For non-Prime customers, $4.99 allows access for one child, where as $9.99 every month allows up to 6 children access. However, if you have Prime then the price drops to $2.99 for one child and $6.99 for up to 6. That’s quite a saving and should encourage some people to sign up for both Prime and FreeTime Unlimited together.More at Amazon, via The Vergelast_img
