On 16th May, Amazon Prime Video released KGF 2 on their platform. But why there is so much outrage on the release of KGF 2 on Prime Video? Why do we have to pay to watch KGF 2 on Prime Video? Can we watch KGF 2 for free on Amazon Prime Video? All questions regarding KGF 2, its release on Prime Video, and ways to watch it for free have been answered.
Releasing KGF 2 on Prime Video, making users pay for Prime Video subscription, and making them pay again to watch KGF 2 sounds absurd right? This concept is not new in western countries. Many OTT platforms in India such as Prime Video and Zee5 have adopted this approach to make users pay for early access to movies. This concept is called TVOD – Transactional Video on Demand. It helps in generating extra revenue for the OTT players for a certain period of time.
To add on, this can only be done if the movie is made at a scale of KGF 2 or RRR for that matter. So the sole reason for paying a subscription for KGF 2 is because of the early release on the OTT platform. KGF 2 is released early on Prime Video, earlier than initially expected. Paid access to KGF 2 will help Prime Video in generating extra revenue.
Is it possible to watch KGF 2 for free on Prime Video?
After a few weeks, when the dust has been settled and KGF 2 is no more in the theatres, Prime Video will make KGF 2 free for their paid users. Somewhere in mid-June, KGF 2 will be made available to paid Prime Video members for free.
Do I need to pay to watch KGF 2 on Prime Video?
As of today, you will have to pay Prime Video to watch KGF 2 because of early access. If you have patience, you can wait for another month or so until the subscription cost is been removed for KGF 2.
