In addition to a banquet of deep discounts on its Echo range of devices, for Black Friday. Three months of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited’s family plan — which normally would cost you $30 — is right now available for just a dollar. The package offers unlimited access to child-friendly content on any Amazon service such as Audible or Prime Video for up to four kids of ages 3-12.
Amazon FreeTime Unlimited is a one-stop subscription for kids who are used to Amazon products like the Fire tablets, Kindle e-book readers, Fire TV streaming stick and Echo smart speakers. Parents can specifically choose and approve the content, including books, audiobooks, and TV shows, that their kids request.
As you’d expect, the subscription comes with a host of parental controls. They can be employed to configure how long the kids are allowed to stream the available content and set age restrictions. In addition, there’s a centralized dashboard that lets parents keep tabs on exactly what their children are reading or watching. It also offers the ability to remotely pause connected devices.
On products like the Fire tablets, Amazon FreeTime Unlimited enables parents to define internet browsing limits and pick what their kids can download from the app store. There’s even a bedtime setting which automatically locks down the devices and unlocks them at a specific time every day.
Once the three-month period expires, Amazon FreeTime Unlimited’s family plan will cost you a monthly $7 fee if you have a Prime membership or $10 otherwise. You can also purchase it for a year for $69 which brings down the monthly cost to $5.75.
Amazon FreeTime Unlimited won’t have much value if you don’t own any Amazon devices, however. Lucky for you, the e-commerce company is running a ton of discounts and deals on its whole range of products like Echo smart speakers, Fire tablets, and the rest.
