You don’t have to pay for the content you don’t watch with Amazon Prime Video. What should you do if you wish to cancel your Amazon Prime Video subscription for TV or movie channels?
Your Amazon account allows you to manage all of your subscriptions from one page. You can cancel or modify any subscriptions you do not want.
Amazon Prime Video TV and Movie Channel Subscriptions.
Amazon Prime membership gives you access to many streaming TV shows and movies for no additional cost beyond your Prime subscription.
You may have noticed, however, that you need to subscribe to a premium Prime Video channel like AMC, Cinemax or STARZ to be able to view certain shows and movies.
Many channels offer free trials. Amazon Prime members can get free trials. However, they will still need to provide their billing and credit card information. Once the trial ends, Amazon will charge you for the subscription.
Channel subscriptions will auto-renew unless you cancel. This holds true for all subscription types, including Amazon Music or your Amazon Prime membership.
