Prime Day has become one of the biggest shopping days of the year. In 2022, the hype is bigger that ever and Amazon is offering some huge discounts for streaming service users already. Those include 99 cent Prime Channels.
This article will cover everything you need know ahead of Prime Day, as well as some other early deals to check out. Take note that the offers mentioned here are relevant to the United States but will vary by country.

What are Prime Channels?
First let’s get this out of the way. If you have an active Amazon Prime membership, you get full access to Prime Video. This includes thousands of movies and shows you can stream over the internet, like the upcoming The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power series.
With Prime Video you can also add on Prime Channels for an additional fee. These include streaming services like Paramount+ and Discovery+.
For example, if you subscribe to Paramount+ through Prime Channels, you’ll have access to all the movies and shows you’d get with a regular Paramount+ subscription. The difference is that you won’t switch between two different apps to watch them. Everything is conveniently housed together on Prime Video.
If you’re not a Prime member, you can sign up and get 30 days free here. College student? Get it free for six months here. EBT or Medicaid recipient? You can get Prime for 50% off. See if you qualify here.
What's Included With This Deal?
Now let’s get into everything you need to know about this deal. From now until July 13th, you can get certain Prime Channels for 99 cents per month for up to 2 months.
- PBS Masterpiece
- Hallmark Movies Now
- PBS Kids
- PBS Documentaries
- Up Faith & Family
- Movie Sphere
Some of these Prime Channels cost up $11/month without the discount, so this a big savings!

What to Expect for Prime Day
This year's Prime Day is from July 12th-13th. Amazon will have a number of deals throughout both days.
We won’t know the full details of everything until Prime Day itself. It’s reasonable to assume, though, that there could be some steep discounts on Amazon’s products including Fire TV devices and smart TVs.
Past years have included flash sales throughout both days, so check back often once Prime Day starts. On Shall I Stream It, we’ll send out updates on our website, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages so stay tuned for everything you need to know here!
