Amazon Prime is exceedingly popular, with estimates showing that nearly 1/3rd of Americans are Prime subscribers. The service has a LOT to offer, from 2-day shipping to an extensive video library. But one area that many people aren’t aware of is Amazon Channels, a subsection of Amazon Prime Video. These channels let you expand your entertainment options even more – we’ll cover more details in the Amazon Prime TV Channels list below.

 

What are Amazon Prime Channels?

Prime Video channelsAmazon Channels are third-party channels that are available for an extra fee for Prime subscribers. Some of the most popular include HBO and Showtime, but there are many other options.

Essentially, these channels expand your viewing options beyond what is already offered in Prime Video. They cost extra (typically $2-$15/mo extra).

Some provide on-demand streaming only, some live streaming, and some both. Once you are signed up, content will be available directly through the Prime Video app – and you’ll also be able to use your Amazon credentials to access the relevant third-party app (i.e. HBO Now). To sum up, here are the basics of Amazon TV channels:

  • Sold in addition to your Amazon Prime membership
  • Cost ranges from a few dollars to $15 per month
  • Adds additional entertainment to your Prime Video library
  • Popular options include HBO, Showtime, Starz, NBA League Pass, etc.
  • Some offer on-demand only; some live only; some live & on-demand
  • Most give access to the full library – the HBO Amazon Channel gives you access to HBO’s full on-demand library
  • Amazon Channels are a useful way to consolidate multiple subscriptions into one app

Those are the basics! We’ll go over Amazon Channels costs, features and lay out the full Amazon Prime TV channels list in the guide below.
