How to Watch The Rings of Power's First Two Episodes For Free (Legally)
House of the Dragon just dropped, The Sandman could see a second season, and The Witcher: Blood Origin is expected to be released at the end of the year. Suffice to say, it’s a good year for fantasy.
To top it all off, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will stream on Amazon Prime Video on September 1 (or September 2, 9 a.m. Philippine time). Amazon will be dropping The Rings of Power one day earlier than expected, and fans won’t just be gifted with the first episode—but the first two.
Written by executive producers J. D. Payne & Patrick McKay and directed by J.A. Bayona, the first two episodes will be about two hours long. The Rings of Power is based on the mythology of J. R. R. Tolkien and will be set thousands of years before the events of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. It’s expected to cover the events leading up to the Last Alliance of Elves and Men, which was referenced heavily in the film trilogies.
The stakes are high for this Amazon show. After five years of production, the series will finally be released to the public on September 2 only on Amazon Prime Video. Lucky for us, Amazon Prime Video is available in the Philippines. And you can get a one-week free trial when you first sign up. That’s right—before The Rings of Power drops, you can avail of the free trial just in time for the first two episodes.
Once the trial expires, you can spend just P149 per month to keep up with the show. The Rings of Power is expected to run for about two months every Saturday (Philippine time) until October 15. That’s just P300 to view a $465 million show. Now that’s a steal.
Prime Video offers a whole slew of original programming, such as the adaptation of The Wheel of Time and the cult-favorite anti-super show The Boys. So if you’re looking for a streamer with lower rates and plenty of content, Prime Video’s P149 monthly price tag is an opportunity you can’t miss.
