Cord cutters who are subscribed to Amazon Prime Video have a few more options to choose from in the platform’s premium channel lineup. In a major move for the streaming platform, subscribers can now add Paramount+ Essential, AMC+ with Ads, and Max with Ads plans to the service. In the past services like Paramount+ only offered the ad-free option. Now you can get the cheaper ad-supported versions.
Previously, Prime Video only allowed subscribers in the US to add the ad-free plans of the aforementioned services to their membership. With the new year arriving, this is the perfect time to enjoy these premium channels as part of your Prime Video experience.
Adding any one of three premium channels to your Prime Video subscription allows you to view all of your favorite shows, movies, sports, and events in one place. Plus, if you’re new to Amazon Prime, you can try it for free for 30 days.
Here’s everything you need to know about the three channels.
- Price: $5.99 per month

The one-stop entertainment destination has a large collection of content that subscribers can choose from. For only $5.99 per month, the Paramount+ Essential brings you tens of thousands of hours of content from original series and movies, including, Lawmen: Bass Reeves, PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie and Frasier. With the ad-supported plan, you can stream breaking news 24/7, and live sports, including the NFL on CBS and UEFA Champions League.
