People are fed up with expensive bloated cable packages and prefer the flexibility of creating their own custom "channel" lineup via streaming apps. And with over 300 streaming services available, consumers have endless options to choose from.
But with all those choices, it can be hard to know which streaming platforms are really worth your time and money. That‘s where this Prime Day deal comes in clutch!

Don‘t Forget to Cancel If Needed
This discount only lasts for the first two months. After that, your subscription will automatically renew at the full standard pricing.
So if you decide a particular streaming service isn‘t right for you or don‘t want to pay the higher price, make sure you cancel before the two months are up.
To cancel, just go back to the Prime Video Channel you subscribed to and select the option to cancel or deactivate it. I suggest putting another reminder on your calendar a few days before the deadline so you don‘t get charged unintentionally.
