Amazon Channels offers free trials to many premium channels, like HBO, Showtime and more. We have all the details on how to sign up for your free trials below and enjoy Amazon Channels.
These trials are a great way to have a movie night (or binge watch) over the weekend. They are also great to use for road trips, etc. to keep kids entertained!
Update: Amazon Prime members can sign up for a 3 month subscription to Starz for just $.99/mo! This would be in place of the free trial month, but if you know you want to try it out for a few months, this is a great option! This is only available thru Wed 12/11.
After your 3 months is over, the subscription will change to $8.99/mo after that time period. However, you can cancel at any time.
Amazon Prime has been a great way to stream movies and TV for some time now. My family subscribes each year, mainly for this purpose. Now they are expanding on this service, and have added a service called Amazon Channels. Amazon Channels offers a number of premium channels that you can add onto your service for an extra fee monthly. Right now you can sign up to get free trials of many of these channels, and add them to your Prime Service to try out for free!
This could be a great way to get free movies for the family, by taking advantage of some of these free trial offers. You can cancel at any time.
If you have never signed up for these free trials, here is a tip on how my family likes to use them. One way that I like to maximize the benefit of the Amazon Channels trials is to sign up one at a time. This will provide me access to the free movies longer. For example, I would sign up for the HBO free trial first, and once that has ended, I would sign up for the Showtime free trial, etc.
I also like to time my sign ups so my family can watch them over the weekend (or if we are planning a road trip and I want the kids to have access in the car to a movie, I might wait for just before our vacation to sign up.
