Amazon Prime Video will include advertising during shows and movies starting early next year, joining other streaming services that have added different tiers of subscriptions.  Members of Amazon Prime can pay $2.99 per month to keep their service ad-free, the company said Friday.  Streaming services are in a heated tug-of-war over viewers and users are growing more adept at jumping in and out of those services,  often depending on price. The platforms risk losing customers with price hikes, but they could lose them if they don’t generate new content that wins over users.  Disney will begin charging $13.99 a month in the U.S. for ad-free Disney+ in mid-October, 75% more than the ad-supported service. Netflix already charges $15.49 per month for its ad-free plan, more than twice the monthly subscription for Netflix with ads.
