This move by Amazon should not be interpreted as a simple insertion of advertising. The peculiarity of this innovation lies in its implementation: a limited number of ads, significantly lower than that found in linear television and other streaming services.

How to skip ads on Prime Video

Although from April 9th ​​Amazon will introduce skippable advertising with the payment of €1,99, we have made a guide to skip ads on prime Video, Netflix and co. In short, it is necessary install an extension which allows you to speed up ads on streaming platforms by acting "at the source", i.e. on a script javascript. Adding this extension will allow a slider or speed selector to set how and how quickly to skip ads.

The choice is yours, although for me, until they eliminate it, the best solution is the latter.
