Pay less for Amazon’s film, TV and sport streaming service.
Like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video has a huge range of original content mixed in with classic boxsets and movies. It’s also increasingly influential in sports broadcasting with some Premier League fixtures, ATP and WTA tennis and more.

Prime Video subscription deals
Prime: 30-day free trial
If you’re new to Amazon Prime then it’s well worth taking the 30-day free trial. Just make sure you cancel before you get charged the full annual amount. If that does accidentally happen you should contact Amazon ASAP to ask for a refund.
It’s also worth checking even if you’ve had this in the past as Amazon regularly offers this again. It used to be once every 12-months (or 12 months since you last had Prime), but I’ve seen it available months after cancelling.
Prime: 99p for a week
Ex-Prime users might also see an offer for a week for under £1 to sign back up. There’s no commitment beyond this time – as long as you cancel before the next full month begins. You’ll find this if you go to the Prime tab on the menu.
Prime Video only: £3 monthly discount
There’s no need to pay for full Amazon Prime if you don’t want the extra features. You can get a video-only subscription for £5.99 a month.
This is the cheapest way to get just the video service, even over a year as you’ll pay £71.88 for 12 months rather than £95 for a year of full Prime.
Don’t be fooled by advertising on the site that says Prime Video is £8.99 – the cheaper price is still there and you can select it when you activate your subscription.
Prime: Save £2 via O2
If you are with O2 or Virgin Media (or follow this hack here) you’ll have access to O2 Priority, and this can save you £2 off the monthly price for full Prime, including Prime Video.
You’ll pay the full £8.99 via your O2 account, but receive £2 credit. There’s an initial minimum six month requirement, so you’ll have to wait to cancel if you don’t want to keep the subscription.
You will have to pay the extra £2.99 a month to avoid the adverts unless you signed up to this before 4 February 2024. If you did you’ll get this for free for the duration of that initial six months.
Watch Premier League games on Prime Video
You can watch Premier League football games on Amazon Prime Video over two rounds of fixtures each December. This means for £5.99 (or free if you’ve not had the trial before), you can watch a total of 18 matches.
However, after the 2024/25 season (so December 2024), Amazon will no longer have the rights to show any Premier League games.
Channel add-on offers
Amazon often runs offers to save money on add-on channels such as Starzplay and Eurosport. You must have Prime Video already to add channels. We’ll share below if any decent offers appear.
