Amazon Prime Video Add-On Channels

There are over 100 Amazon Prime Video subscription channels available, and we’ve rounded them all up for you in one place.

Instead of “What add-on channels are available on Amazon Prime Video?”, the easier question to answer would be, “What add-on channels aren’t on Amazon Prime Video?” (The answer: HBO and HBO Max—more on that in a minute.)

Prime Video features over 100 add-channels to subscribe to through the streaming service, from premium networks to sports to movies to kids’ channels and more. Most of them are available as standalone apps elsewhere, but, if you crave convenience, having quick access to all of your channels through Prime Video is pretty sweet.

Nearly all of the following channels offer seven-day free trial periods, and there’s even a free channel, the ad-supported (and Amazon-owned) Freevee.

No more HBO add-on channel, though: Prime Video recently parted ways with HBO, so you’d be missing out on a lot of shows and movies. We’d recommend subscribing to HBO Max as a standalone service outside of Prime Video—it’s the same price as HBO ($14.99 a month), with more content.

Amazon Prime Video Add-On Channels FAQ

How do I get Amazon Prime Video channels?

From the top menu of the Prime Video home screen, choose “Channels.” From there, you can add channels to your account or access channels you’ve already subscribed to in the “Your Channels” menu section.

All Channels content is displayed below that menu. Shows and movies on channels you’re not subscribed to will display a yellow “$” on the corner tab.

Does Amazon Prime Video have live channels?

Prime Video does feature free and paid “live” channels, which are 24/7 loops of shows and movies—like Pluto TV and Sling Free. You can access these by clicking “Channel Guide” on the right side of the Channels menu. The dark-shaded “My Channels” section features free shows, as well as content from channels you’ve subscribed to.

Prime Video also streams some TV content live, like the NFL’s Thursday Night Football, and sports channels like PGA Golf, MLB.TV, and NBA League Pass.

Does Prime Video have free channels?

Most of Prime Video’s 24/7 loop channels featured in the Channel Guide are free with the basic subscription. Except for premium channel content from your subscriptions, the free channels are ad-supported (as is the Amazon-owned, and free, Freevee channel).

What channels do you get with Amazon Prime Video?

Prime Video carries 100+ add-channels to subscribe to through the streaming service, from premium networks to sports to movies to kids’ channels and more. One of the few channels you can’t get through Amazon Prime Video is HBO (or HBO Max).
