Default If I Cancel Prime, Do I Lose Access to Purchased Content?

Yes yes I know, something something semantics about my using the word, "purchased." That's not what I'm asking about, I get it. What I'm asking, is do I lose access to streaming content I've bought (yes I know, license to access, semantics, whatever, not what I'm asking) if I have an Amazon account but not a Prime account?

I think anything purchased would still be in your Amazon Library to view. I think this has been asked before, but not sure. Good Luck

No. You bought it, you keep it

...unless a legal declaration pulls it from all of Amazon.

There’s one detail, though. If you’re outside the country (or just if you’re in a country not “officially” supported by the service, not sure), you can’t stream anything you’ve purchased without a Prime membership. Like, your Library tab disappears until you resub or get back home.

Interesting side note. If you get banned by Amazon, you lose access to the movies you paid for without any kind of a refund.

Amazon has terms of service that include "termination" clauses. As a Prime member, this paragraph governs termination of Amazon Prime Video:

Termination. We may terminate your access to the Service, including any subscription available as part of the Service, at our discretion without notice (except as may be required by applicable law). If we do so, we will give you a pro-rated refund of your subscription fee (if any); however, if you violate any of the terms of this Agreement, your rights under this Agreement will automatically terminate without notice, and Amazon may, in its discretion, immediately revoke your access to the Service and to Digital Content without refund of any fees. In such event, you must delete all copies of Digital Content that you have downloaded."

Amazon has banned customers for what it considers to be excessive product returns, too. They have terms of service governing every aspect of their website and there are similar termination clauses in each of them that I have read so far.

Hmmm... never read that. I just stream video and only return damaged goods, so I guess no worries for me. I've never heard of anyone getting banned from Amazon so I was just wondering. I guess just another reason never to go digital. They can't ban me from watching a blu in a player.

When I was in the U.K. back in June I had access to my library and could stream videos (maybe different rules for different countries). VUDU wouldn't let me stream, got an error message when doing so, though I could also see my library and watch stuff I downloaded before going there.

I had the same question. I talked to someone at Amazon about it and they said you never lose access to the movies you purchase even if you drop the Prime membership.
