Several streaming subscription channels that you can get via Amazon’s Prime Video Channels platform are now on sale – at only 99p/month – for a limited time.
The list includes StarzPlay, Shudder, BFI Player and even BritBox, the streaming service from ITV and the BBC, which is available at £2.99/month (see the full list below).
One catch is that these reductions are only available to Amazon Prime members – but that’s pretty much a given, as you can’t even sign up to most channels WITHOUT a Prime subscription.
Prime Video Channels are an add-on to your 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 Premier Sports.
As mentioned, 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 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+, and even on Freesat.
And now, to help you find things to watch before and after Christmas, Amazon is lowering the cost of several channels – for a limited time (some of these offers are valid until January 6, and some until January 10).
Just remember that once the three (or two) months are up, the price will revert back to normal, unless you cancel.
