PBS Masterpiece has been bringing dramas, romances, mysteries, and epic miniseries to viewers since 1971. Now, with the PBS Masterpiece channel on Amazon Prime Channels, you can keep up with your favorite series or turn on a feel good movie.
Below, we’re looking at what the PBS Masterpiece channel has to offer.
About PBS Masterpiece on Amazon
PBS Masterpiece is a channel that will give you access to series and movies that have aired on PBS. While your regular Amazon Prime Video subscription will let you watch some older series and movies, this channel focuses on newer content. Some of that content is exclusive to the Amazon channel, including episodes of Jamestown.
One big benefit to subscribing to the channel is keeping up with new episodes of shows that are currently airing. The other benefit is having access to your favorite PBS content directly from your Amazon Prime account. You can log in to your Amazon account to watch on your computer, or stream with Amazon friendly devices without signing in to a separate app.
If you want to try out the channel, you can start with a 7-day free trial. After that, your subscription will cost $5.99/month.
