Best known for its series such as “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Fleabag,” “Bosch,” “The Expanse,” and the upcoming “The Lord of the Rings” show, Amazon Prime Video’s library contains thousands of hours of TV shows and movies.

If that selection isn’t enough for you, however, Amazon lets you add tons of channels for additional monthly fees. There are about 100+ different ones, with genres like Kids, British, Fitness, Comedy, Romance, and LQBTQ. They range from well-known names such as STARZ, SHOWTIME, discovery+, Paramount+ and MLB.TV, to more niche services like BritBox, Sundance Now, and PBS Kids.

Here are the hundreds of premium channels you may add on to your subscription for as low as $0.99/month with a seven-day free trial. It also should be noted that those that say “Free” are only $0.00/month when included with your Prime membership (which is $8.99/month).

How to Get Amazon Prime Video Channels

  1. Sign in to your Amazon account.
  2. Browse to Amazon’s list of channels.
  3. Find the channel you want and select it.
  4. Click on “Get started
  5. Confirm details to purchase.

The main benefit of using Prime Channels is that it provides one place to access content from multiple providers. Billing is handled by one central source as well. It’s also easy to find content from channels because it is typically included in Amazon’s search indexes. You can also download content for offline viewing through the Prime Video app.
