Amazon just added two big names to its Channels offerings, an a la carte premium subscription streaming hub: HBO and Cinemax. HBO will cost subscribers $15 per month, similar to the pricing on other services, while Cinemax is priced at $10 per month. An Amazon Prime subscription is required for access to Amazon Channels.
The new additions do not include live streaming, unlike with competing services such as HBO on Sling TV. HBO on Amazon Prime, meanwhile, provides access to HBO’s on-demand catalog. This includes favorite shows like Westworld, Insecure, and Game of Thrones, as well as top movies like The Martian, The Revenant, and Batman vs. Superman (hey, I didn’t say they were all good movies).
