Prime Video Channels offers free STARZPLAY for 3 months
Staff Reporter | On 22, Dec 2018
Amazon’s Prime Video Channels is offering three months of STARZPLAY and other channels for free this Christmas.
Prime Video Channels is a platform for over 70 streaming services, each of which is available as a standalone subscription. The pick-and-mix approach allows live and on-demand streaming of a range of TV shows, sport and films without the need to sign up to a bundle or commit to a contract – the only requirement is an Amazon Prime membership (£79 a year or £7.99 a month) or Amazon Prime Video subscription (£5.99 a month).
For Christmas, Amazon is now offering a limited window to subcribe to hayu, STARZPLAY, Discovery or MGM channels for 3 months at no extra cost. With no contract needed, you can then stream for free Keeping Up With The Kardashians, The Real Housewives of New York City and Beverly Hills (via hayu), The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 & 2, Castle Rock and Counterpart (via STARZPLAY).
The deal, which went live at the end of this week, is perfectly timed for catching up with Counterpart, a mind-bending thriller starring J.K. Simmons that, at the time of writing, is airing its second season on Sundays.
“The best TV show of 2018 you haven’t seen,” is how we described Season 1 in our review. “J.K. Simmons dazzles in this twisting, gripping tale of spies, secret worlds and double identities.”
The offer is available until 6th January at www.amazon.co.uk/digitaldeals.
Here’s the rundown of channels eligible:
NBCUniversal’s streaming service is dedicated entirely to reality TV, with over 350 Kardashian episodes, plus shows such as The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. New episodes are released on the same day as their US broadcast.
MGM’s standalone subscription service offers on-demand streaming of its own library of Hollywood hits, cult films and acclaimed TV series, including The Hobbit, 21 Jump Street, The Vow, Teen Wolf.
