Amazon Launches ‘The Force Awakens’ Instagram Contest To Celebrate Streaming Of The Film
Star Wars fans who don't already follow Amazon Video's Instagram account need to do so immediately. That's because the streaming platform is kicking off a new contest today in celebration of the upcoming ability for Prime members to stream The Force Awakens.
Prime members with the Starz add-on subscription will be able to stream Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Sept. 10.
Those who don't already have the Starz subscription can add it to their Prime Video plan through Amazon Channels for an additional $8.99 per month after a seven-day free trial.
It's huge news in its own right that viewers will soon be able to start streaming The Force Awakens. However, Amazon is adding icing to the cake by hosting a social media giveaway for all Star Wars fans.
Just launched on its Instagram page, Amazon Video is giving away The Force Awakens Funko Pop! sets for free.
