Amazon Prime Video launched in 200 countries in late 2016 – like Netflix, not in China. We forecast 120 million Amazon Prime Video’s subscribers by 2023 – double the 2017 total. However, 110 million of the 2023 total will be in Amazon Prime territories, and therefore will not directly pay for the video platform.
