Amazon Prime Video Channels: what is it?

Amazon offers premium content from TV channels in its Channels section. In other words, it is not a question of watching these channels live, but of watching their à la carte content, when you wish, in streaming.

Each channel actually leads to a sub-section of Amazon Prime Video showing only its own content. In fact, it is as if Amazon were offering its infrastructure and platform to television channels so that they too can capitalize on the rise of streaming and Prime Video.

The selection itself is not yet very extensive:

  • Motorbike: €2,99/month
  • Canal J + Tiji: €1,99/month
  • Crime District: €1,99/month
  • GEO Television: €3,99/month
  • GulliMAX: €2,99/month
  • Hopster: 4,99. €/month
  • Half + Half HD: € 3,50 / mois
  • MGM: €3,99/month
  • MUBI: €9,99/month
  • My Science & Vie Junior: €2,99/month
  • TFOU Max: €3,99/month
  • The whole story: €1,99/month

But Amazon assures that other channels will be added later. Contracts have notably been signed with the TF1, Lagardère and Mediawan groups, which together represent a large catalog of channels. Elsewhere in the world, Prime Video Channels has up to 300 channels, so this is likely just the beginning.

To get started, you need to be a subscriber to Amazon Prime Video – which is included in the Prime membership if you order from Amazon often. Then to subscribe to a channel you simply have to go to the Channels section on the Prime Video site or on the application of the same name.


When you come across a paid channel or one of its contents, you will only have access to it if you decide to subscribe. This subscription is nevertheless non-binding, and each time Amazon offers a free 30-day trial..

The content of these channels can be watched in streaming on all your devices whether via the browser on PC and Mac or the Prime Video application on Android, iOS and a large number of smart TVs, dongles (Chromecast, Fire TV Stick) and other set-top-boxes (Fire TV, Apple TV, Nvidia Shield TV, etc…). Prime Video has also recently been available on SFR and Canal+ boxes.
