Amazon Just Added New Channels to Its À La Carte Service

Male hand holding TV remote control.Amazon’s channels service is the closest thing to à la carte TV we currently have. If you are an Amazon Prime member you can use your Amazon account to sign up for a growing list of Amazon Channels. These channels include HBO, Showtime, Starz, and many lesser known channels such as Dove Channel, Fullscreen, PBS, and CuriosityStream.

Now Amazon has recently added even more channels to its service including the following:

Most of these channels cost in the $2 to $3 a month range and typically stay under $5 a month. This allows fans of a particular style of show or movie to get access to more content they love.

The other real selling point of Amazon channels is the ability to have all your billing managed in once place. Many of these services offer standalone apps such as HBO NOW; however, with Amazon Channels you have one app and one billing account to think about.

While this is still far from the dream of à la carte TV most want it is a step in the right direction. Hopefully Amazon will continue to add more channels to the service.

      Yeah, wow, THEY would have to pay ME to watch those (and $2-3 wouldn’t be enough!).

    I have IndieFlix that I got for the 99¢ a month deal that T-Mobile offered a while back. There’s always something to watch a 10 minute short or a full length movie. I enjoy this channel for stuff you can’t find anywhere else.

      Roku offers it, but I don’t know the fee. There’s a free trial. There are so many indies available for free, I haven’t subscribed to pay ones.

    The great part about these channels, is you can subscribe to the free trial, and then immediately cancel to avoid being charged once the free trial has ended. The same scenario works once you have been charged for a month – to help prevent you from being charged an extra month.

    That’s one lousy list of channels.
