An impressive list of 13 premium channels, which are part of Amazon’s Prime Video Channels platform, are now available for just 99p each – for the first month – but the offer is only available for a limited time.
Among the channels included in the 99p offer: Discovery+, StarzPlay, MGM, and even BritBox, the streaming service from ITV, which normally costs £5.99/month.
The sale is in preparation for Amazon’s upcoming Prime Day, which will take place over two days on July 12 and 13 – but the discounted channels are already available, from now until July 14.
Amazon’s Prime Video Channels can be added-on to your Amazon Prime subscription. They launched in the UK a couple of years ago, and you can pick and choose additional premium channels to subscribe to for a monthly fee.
Keep in mind that you must have an Amazon Prime subscription first (or Prime Video), and then you can add the channels on top of that. (But you can get a free 30-days trial of Amazon Prime, and then add the 99p/month channels on top of that.)
Once you subscribe, you can watch the channels on your desktop, your smartphone, or on your TV, via the Amazon Prime Video app, which is available on most Smart TVs and most streaming devices, such as the Amazon Fire TV stick the Roku Streaming Stick 4k, and even on Freesat.
Just remember that once your first, 99p month is up – the subscription will continue automatically at the regular price, so you have to cancel it before that happens, if you don’t want to continue.
