Amazon Prime offers its members plenty of perks past free two-day shipping, and one of the best benefits of them all is just a few days away! Prime Day is a huge, two-day shopping event that features deals exclusively for Prime members, and there are even a few offers that are live right now.

It may not seem to be at first, but the Prime Video streaming service is secretly a beast. Not only does it contain all of its own content, but you can also sign up for other streaming services through Prime Video. That allows you to more easily navigate between services when they're all connected and accessible using the Prime Video app. With Prime Day only a few days away, now is the perfect time to add more to your subscription as Amazon is offering select Prime Video channels for only $0.99 per month (opens in new tab) for a limited time.

Amazon Prime Video lets you add other streaming services as 'channels' to your Prime subscription, and right now select options are down to just $1 per month ahead of Prime Day!

Some of the Prime Video channels on sale this weekend include Starz, Paramount+, Showtime, Discovery+, AMC+, and BET+, among others. These services regularly cost up to $11 monthly depending on the one you choose, though thanks to this special Prime Video offer, you can score up to two months for only $1 each. Signing up for another streaming service using Prime Video can also be a brilliant way to get around the fact that some of these streaming services are simply not available on all streaming devices.

Prime Video is also offering up to 50% off movies and more (opens in new tab) in the lead-up to Prime Day, so you might want to browse the service for a minute just to see if there's anything you might want to add to your digital library.

As with all Prime Day deals, you'll need an Amazon Prime membership if you want to take advantage of today's sale at Prime Video. You can start a free 30-day trial (opens in new tab) to instantly gain access to Prime Video, along with all the excellent deals we'll be seeing next week during Prime Day, free two-day shipping, and more.
