Amazon Video Will Soon Offer A La Cart Channel Subscriptions

amzn_roku_grid_fullLove AMC Shows and wish you could subscribe to just AMC Shows without paying for FX or other networks? Soon, Amazon will let you choose the channels you want to subscribe to without all the content you do not want according to Bloomberg.

No longer will you have to pay per show for next day episodes; instead, a monthly fee will give you next day access to every episode from your favorite network. This may be as close to an a la cart channel option as we will get right now.

Unlike Hulu which requires you to subscribe to everything they offer, Amazon Video will allow you to pick and choose which networks you want. Amazon was contacted about the la cart channel subscription but declined to comment at this time.

At this time it is unclear which networks will be part of this service, but many already have a close relationship with Amazon. It was also reported that this service is separate from the Amazon’s efforts to offer live streaming of cable TV channels.

If Amazon delivers this service as described it will make Amazon Video a “must have” app for cord cutters, leaving any device without the Amazon Video app severely lacking. It will also help make Fire TV the “must have” set top streaming device of 2016.

    If this comes to pass and Amazon really does this, this could be a boon to cord cutters and a major death knell to the cable/satellite providers. This could prove to be the catalyst that’s needed to get some on the fence about cord cutting to finally go through with it as some are still hanging on to cable/satellite so they get that one or so network…

    I’m curious however, if you subscribe to a particular channel that’s carried by Amazon, do you still get to pick and choose the time you view your program(s) of choice? Is it going to be like it is now in that when you’re ready to watch, you select your program and then episode or like Sling in that you have to watch it then, there and live?
