The company has launched a new Prime Video Cinema hub that allows you to rent or buy in-theater movies from the comfort of your own home.

The "free for all" scheme also includes titles such as Tumble Leaf and Little Big Awesome and is aimed at pre-school children, as well as those up to the age of 11.

Staying at home right now is the best thing you can do right now to protect yourself against the novel coronavirus, and to protect your loved ones and total strangers who you might otherwise come in contact with. Now, Amazon has finally started rolling out the one feature that can really come in handy during the COVID-19 outbreak: Support for multiple profiles on the same account. You can have up to six user profiles (1 default primary profile + 5 additional profiles either adult or kids) within Prime Video on a single Amazon account. Thankfully, it looks like the function has gone live for some users now. In addition to the new releases, Prime Video has a ton of other movies available, and a bunch of discounted picks that change each week.

Coronavirus: Take lockdown 'seriously', says PM Modi
India so far has 341 confirmed cases of the coronavirus, as per the Health Ministry, while four people have died due to the highly contagious virus.

The content, previously available only to Prime Video customers, includes Amazon original series "Just Add Magic", "Pete the Cat" and "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" and select seasons of PBS Kids shows including "Arthur", "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood," "Odd Squad" and "Wild Kratts".

All markets where Amazon Prime or Prime Video are available will likely get the profiles feature at some point in the future. The worldwide rollout is happening in phases, so you should expect follow-up news when profiles are available in the U.S. and the UK. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.
