If you’re a cord cutter and also happen to be an Amazon Prime member, Jeff Bezos and company have added yet another perk worth taking advantage of: you can now subscribe to HBO and Cinemax via Prime. The move brings HBO and its pay cable subsidiary to the growing Amazon Channels lineup and allows Prime members to subscribe to them for monthly costs of $14.99 USD and $9.99 USD, respectively. The move builds on HBO and Amazon’s existing relationship, which has previously made a number of seasons of older HBO programming available for free streaming via Prime. Said Michael Paull, Amazon’s vice president for digital video, in a statement:
HBO has produced some of the most groundbreaking, beloved and award-winning shows in television history. Their selection of blockbuster movies is unsurpassed, including hits like Batman v Superman, The Revenant, and Deadpool. And, our customers have been asking when all that wonderful content will be available on Amazon Channels. Prime members can now watch the latest episodes of the critically-acclaimed Westworld and Game of Thrones without the need for a cable subscription. We’re thrilled to work with HBO to bring their cutting-edge content to Amazon Prime members with Amazon Channels.
