Amazon Prime: More than 200 films will soon disappear from the offer

Amazon Prime

At Amazon Prime, the range of films, series and documentaries is not only constantly being expanded. Much of the content disappears at regular intervals. In short, this will affect more than 200 films and series. So that you can enjoy them again in peace beforehand, we give you a small overview of interesting works.

For example, fans of Harry Potter shouldn't take too much time. All eight episodes of the major film series will disappear from Amazon (buy now) Prime within the next 30 days. It would therefore be the right time to immerse yourself in the Hogwarts adventure again. The action fans among you should also hurry, because the five episodes of Mission: Impossible with actor Tom Cruise in the lead role will also have to say goodbye shortly. The films are well worth seeing just because of the spectacular stunts.

Speaking of action: The supporters of Bruce Willis in his star role as John McClane can review the five episodes of Die Hard before they are on Amazon Prime removed. But family-friendly films such as "The Penguins from Madagascar" will soon disappear from the offer. You can find the complete overview on Amazon, here is a small excerpt:

Amazon just announced that Amazon Prime Day — a massive two-day sale on the site — will take place on June 21 and 22. But to take advantage of many of the deals Amazon is offering, you will need to be a Prime member. Amazon Prime is Amazon’s subscription service that offers perks like free one- and two-day shipping on millions of items; free access to thousands of TV shows, movies and songs; exclusive deals, and more. Amazon Prime is regularly priced at $119 for the year or $12.99 per month, but there are many ways to get it free (including a variety of free trials) or at a deep discount. 

Get a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime (cancel anytime)If you just want to sign up for Prime for Prime Day deals, you can do a 30-day free trial right now and then cancel before the trial is up if you don’t want to continue. After your trial, Prime costs $12.99 per month. The Prime trial is a good way to see whether you like and use the benefits of Prime. If you order multiple times a month and in small quantities from Amazon, it’s often worth it for the free shipping alone; if you’re an infrequent shopper on Amazon, it may not be.
