For most streaming services, October is always all about Halloween. But Amazon Prime Video has another special occasion this year: Exactly 60 years ago, on October 5, 1962, “James Bond – 007 chases Dr. No” premiered. Back then, no one could have foreseen that this would be the prelude to one of the most famous and long-lasting film series of all time, which will still attract crowds to the cinemas in 2022 and for which the most famous stars on the planet are vying for the leading role.
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the screen, Amazon is giving all Prime subscribers the (almost) ultimate Bond gift: The first 24 films of the 007 saga created by Eon Productions are available today on Amazon Prime Video at no additional cost. At the time of publication of this article, “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”, “The Spy Who Loved Me” and “The World Is Not Enough” were still missing, but we strongly expect that these will be added later today. We’ve been monitoring the situation all day and new Bond films have been added to the subscription rather than all at once.

On the one hand, it’s great that we get almost the entire 007 series in the Prime subscription, but on the other hand it’s really a shame that Germany is one of the few countries where there are only 24 films. Then in the rest of the world, the complete series, including the latest agent blockbuster “No Time to Die”, will be added to the Prime subscription. In Germany it probably failed because of the streaming rights, which are currently still with Sky. If you want to stream “Bond 25” without additional costs, you currently need a Sky Pay TV or WOW subscription:

But if you already know the old camels of the double zero agent inside out and don’t want to be served up the same films over and over again, Amazon Prime Video also has brand new 007 replenishment.
“The Sound of 007” is about what is perhaps the most famous film music in the world. Bond actor Daniel Craig, star composer Hans Zimmer, “No Time To Die” singer Billie Eilish and other stars talk about the iconic sounds that characterize a 007 adventure in the documentary.
