How To Cancel Amazon Prime Video Subscriptions For TV And Movie Channels

Amazon

Amazon’s Prime Video is an excellent way to stay up to date on your favorite movies and shows. But not everyone needs the streaming service all the time.

Whether it’s because of a higher subscription fee, or any other reason, they start wondering how to cancel subscriptions on Amazon Prime Video. So, if you’re sailing the same boat and want to cancel your Prime TV and Movie channels subscription, we’re here to help.

Prime Video Channels vs. Streaming Service Apps 

Before you can cancel any subscription, you need to remember whether you subscribed to a prime video channel or a streaming app on prime.

This is important because the cancelation process for both differs slightly. No, prime video channels and streaming apps on prime are not the same things.

Let me explain!

Prime Video Channels Explained

When you subscribe to a Prime Video channel, you only sign up for that one channel. For example, subscribe to the Starz channel on Prime Video if you want to watch Starz. You can easily do so on Firestick with just a few clicks.

Everything goes through your Amazon account, eliminating the need to create new user credentials. But you can access these prime video channels only through prime video on Firestick or Prime Video app. The subscription’s rights do not transfer over the Starz app or other streaming platforms like Roku or Apple TV

Prime Video Streamin Service Apps Explained

When you subscribe to a streaming service app, you sign up for that entire app. For example, suppose you want to watch Showtime. In that case, you first have to subscribe to Showtime by entering your billing details on the Showtime website. You can manage this subscription on the Showtime website. 

But here’s where things get tricky:

Suppose you download the Showtime app on Firestick and manually subscribe to it using your Amazon billing details. In that case, you can only manage this subscription on Amazon’s website. That means you cannot manage it via the service provider’s website. 

Where To Manage Your Subscriptions On Amazon

Fortunately, everything, including the memberships and subscriptions, is available on the “Memberships & Subscriptions” page. So, you can manage prime video channels and streaming service apps in one place. If you don’t know where to find this page, follow the instructions below:
