  • You can share your Amazon Prime Video account with other family members using Amazon Household, which you can find in your account settings.
  • You can add one other adult to your Prime account to let them use your Prime Video subscription. The two of you will need to share your Amazon payment information to do this.
  • You can add teens and children to your Amazon Prime account as well, and they can use your Prime Video account to rent and watch movies and TV shows.
  • Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories.

You can share your Amazon Prime Video account with other members of your family using an Amazon Prime feature called Amazon Household. You can connect up to two adults, four teens, and four pre-teen children to a single Amazon Prime account. This lets everyone in the home share the benefits of a Prime account, including Prime Video.

You may be surprised to find out Amazon Prime Video can be more than just Amazon Prime Video. There are tons of channels you can add to your account, from big names like HBO to a variety of smaller. Prime Video is a streaming video service by Amazon. Prime Video benefits are included with an Amazon Prime membership and if Amazon Prime isn't available in your country/region, you can join Prime Video to watch. With your membership, you can watch hundreds of TV shows and movies on your favorite devices.

In order to link another adult to your Prime account, though, both of you need to agree to link your credit card information between accounts, which discourages people who don't share a household and are not closely related from sharing a single Prime account.
