This includes the Prime Gaming Channel – available for free to Prime members – Retro Channel, the Ubisoft+ Channel, The Family Channel and others. These channels range from US$5.99 per month to US$17.99 per month.

Commenting on the launch, Daniel Rausch, VP, Amazon Entertainment Devices and Services, said: “Luna harnesses the power of the cloud, enabling customers to instantly play high quality, immersive games on the devices they already own. Today, we’re excited to make Luna available to all customers in the mainland United States, with a unique offer for Prime members to play free games, new Twitch broadcast features for creators, and a broad lineup of titles for any gamer to enjoy.”
