Amazon Gifts 30-Day Free Access To 12 Premium Channels

This post may contain affiliate links*

Streaming just got even more irresistible, with Amazon’s Prime Video Channels laying out a grand buffet of 12 premium channels, all yours to binge-watch for 30 days – absolutely free.

This lavish spread of TV and movie options is exclusively available for a limited time, so potential viewers should seize this opportunity promptly.

In this mix of channels, ITV Catch-up stands out, promising an uninterrupted, ad-free experience for its viewers. It is the on-demand, ad-free Prime Video version of ITV, somewhat similar to ITVX, and offers popular shows like Love Island minus the pesky adverts.

Horror aficionados are in for a thrill with Shudder, a channel dedicated to spine-chilling horror films and TV series.

For those seeking nostalgia, the classic movies and shows from MGM’s vast library are a click away. BFI Player also joins the list, along with several other premium channels (see the full list below).

ITV Hub on Prime Video Channels

However, there is a caveat to keep in mind. This offer is exclusively available to Amazon’s Prime Video subscribers. Don’t worry if you’re not one yet; Amazon also provides a 30-day free trial for its Amazon Prime service, assuming you haven’t activated one recently.

So, in practice, you can get 12 premium channels completely free for 30 days – by combining the Amazon Prime trial with the Prime Video Channels trial.

And if that’s not enough TV for your binge-watching needs, Amazon is also offering 3 months of Paramount+ (the Prime Video Channels version) for half price – so £3.49/month (for up to three months), instead of £6.99.

But hurry up – as both these offers are only valid for a limited time – ahead of Amazon Prime Day that’s taking place next week.

What Are Prime Video Channels?

Prime Video Channels are an add-on to an Amazon Prime Video subscription. They launched in the UK back in 2017, and the list of available channels has been growing since, and now includes some well-known properties such as Discovery+ and Paramount+

As mentioned, you must have an Amazon Prime subscription first (or Prime Video), and then you can add the 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 and the Roku Streaming Stick 4K, and even on Freesat.

Prime Video Channels – Free 30 Days Offer

Most channels normally offer a free trial of 7 days – but for a limited time, you can snag an extended trial of 30 free days.

Remember that once the free trial is up, your subscription will be automatically renewed at the regular price – so don’t forget to cancel before that happens, if you don’t want to continue watching (and start paying).
