How to Cancel Premium Channels on Prime Video
Since its debut in September 2006, Amazon Prime Video has gained quite a cult following among movie enthusiasts. And that’s because, on top of your regular Amazon Prime membership, you get the opportunity to add over one hundred channels from other service providers. Through this arrangement, Prime Video has positioned itself as a one-stop-shop for all your entertainment needs.
But what happens if you no longer wish to keep your subscription to a specific channel?
In this article, we will see how you can cancel premium channels on Prime Video.
What Are Premium Channels on Prime Video?
Premium channels are optional add-ons that come with an Amazon Prime subscription. They give you the opportunity to stream movies, sporting events, and TV shows from a provider. Instead of buying the channels separately via their standalone apps, Prime Video gives you the chance to buy them directly through your Prime Video account.
Although there’s a subscription fee for each channel, you’ll enjoy the convenience of accessing all the content via the Prime Video app.
