The Prime Video viewing experience with Prime and Prime Video Mobile Edition is different. ‘Prime’ customers are able to stream on mobile, desktop and living room devices, while customers on ‘Prime Video Mobile Edition’ plan are only allowed to stream videos on their mobile device in standard definition. Further ‘Prime Video Mobile Edition’ is a single user (single device) plan for video streaming, unlike ‘Prime’ plan which allows family members to stream Prime Video catalog across multiple devices concurrently in High & Ultra High Definition.

No. Prime Video Mobile Edition access is linked with the validity of pre-paid plan which includes PVME benefits and hence PRIME VIDEO MOBILE EDITION access is valid as long as recharge is valid. When recharge expires, the access to PRIME VIDEO MOBILE EDITION too is paused and resumes as soon as customer recharges a plan with PRIME VIDEO MOBILE EDITION benefits.

Customers need not wait till end of their recharge to start a full ‘Prime’ plan. Customers can switch to full ‘Prime’ plan anytime:

Customers can visit primevideo.com or Amazon.in/Prime and switch their active PRIME VIDEO MOBILE EDITION membership to Prime Monthly (₹299), Prime Annual (₹1499) membership 

No, you can wait for your existing Prime Membership to get over.

This doesn’t affect his existing PVME subscription but in case of any support required, user will have to reach out to Amazon.
