Summary of all 30 new Amazon Prime Video add-on subscriptions with prices and content count

amazon-add-on-subscription-service-all

Now that Amazon has revealed their new add-on subscription service, here’s the full list of all 30 available subscriptions on one page for you to compare. Each subscription shows the monthly price, the length of the free trial, as well as how many shows and movies you get with each subscription.

Note that I did not include individual episodes in the “Shows & Movies” count for each subscription. For example, the Screen Junkies subscription shows a count of “4 Shows & Movies”. That does not mean there are only 4 videos to watch. It means there are 4 different shows, each with many episodes. There is no easy way to lookup a total video count.

    These two look like horrible deals

    HooplaKidz has 5 shows at $5.99 per month
    ScreenJunkies Plus has 4 shows at $4.99 per month

    • AFTVnews says:

      Read the note at the top of the post. The counts are for “Shows”, not episodes or videos. The ScreenJunkies subscription, for example, includes over 300 episodes of those 4 shows. The HooplaKidz subscription includes over 100 episodes. Amazon doesn’t give an easy way to look up the episode/video count.

      • tom42 says:

        ScreenJunkies might have 300+ “episodes” but how many of them are 10 minutes or under?

        All 114 Honest Trailers episodes are 5 minutes or under

        29 episodes of Honest Trailer Commentary average around 15 minutes each

        144 episodes of Screen Junkies Show, only 5 are over 10 minutes

        Movie Fights are well over an hour but there are only 51 episodes

        • AFTVnews says:

          I wasn’t trying to imply that it’s worth the subscription fee or not. That’s up to every individual to decide. I was just pointing out that “5 shows at $5.99 per month” and “4 shows at $4.99 per month” is not an accurate representation of the content, hence why I included the note at the start of the post.

        • Tomisstoopud says:

          The screen junkies plus is different shows. The ones you mentioned are free on youtube. Derrr

      • Shady C says:

        Screen junkies is available on YouTube for free

  2. tom42 says:

    conTV has an original show call “Last Fan Standing” hosted by Bruce Campbell but I can not find it listed on Amazon. Either my search stills are lacking or you do not get everything the stand alone conTV offers if you get the prime addon version

    http://www.contv.com/detail-movie/CEG10015360/last-fan-standing/

    • AFTVnews says:

      These subscriptions are definitely not all inclusive of each network’s/service’s content.

      Take FlixFling for example. They offer a $7.99 per month subscription outside of Amazon, but have decided to include some of their content in this new service by cutting up their movies into several smaller genre-specific subscriptions. If you want everything, you’re much better off subscribing directly (although the service is not available on the Fire TV yet), but if you’re just interested in a particular genre, then Amazon’s subscriptions might be better.

  3. tom42 says:

    Acorn TV is a great deal, I’ve has it for about 8 months. Only reason I still have a Roku, well worth the 5 bucks

    • smee says:

      Does Amazon offer everything that the standalone Acorn subscription has? I had Acorn for a while but decided to drop it (used a Roku to view it). I like the programming, but didn’t watch it enough after I finished the shows I got it to watch.

      Acorn through Amazon and standalone are both $4.99. If Amazon doesn’t offer everything, then it may make sense to stick with the standalone.

    • Tom says:

      I completely agree, about 5 or so of these subscriptions are worth getting. The overall service Amazon offers is to bring all these shows into one, semi organized location, and also they hold preferential internet access rights, and massive, massive server and data storage space, so the content we get off Amazon will be better organized than having several individual subs with private companies, their shows will stream more quickly, and many of them are in HD. Also, everyone I have watched offers closed caption, which for me is very important.

      It is true that you can find some of these titles on You Tube, but the picture quality rarely goes over a 240p or 360p, which are low definition designations.It is also a complete toss up what you are streaming onto your system with You Tube. I have watch a program, older TV shows on You Tube are ripe for the picking, and it has not been altogether uncommon to have 15-20 “commercial breaks” spread throughout the segment, along with a small suitcase of malicious code plopped onto my computer that later manifests itself in the form of pop-up’s, etc.

      So, despite the fact that Amazon’s Prime subscriptions are a bit wanting, I think that they are much better than the alternatives out there.

  4. pmcd says:

    Are all these subscriptions ad free?

    • Keith says:

      Excellent question! Id imagine showtime (reasonably priced imho) would be… And some others could have them.
      Really dont want to sound overly cynical of the first round of choices available. Not for me but im glad amazon is moving in the right direction!
      Video addon eh? Wonder where they got that idea?

  5. vulcan195 says:

    All this news is bitter sweet for Comcast customers – that 300GB monthly data usage limit is a huge handicap.

  6. Gracious says:

    Thanks for the excellent write up! Some “channels” appear to be much better deals than others.

  7. Riffmaker says:

    Most of these are way over priced. They’d probably get 10 times to the subscriptions had they priced themselves at a reasonable rate. Like 1.99 to 2.99 at most(with perhaps the exception of the premium cable channels, Starz, Showtime, etc)

    I’m a cord cutter and I look at these numbers and suddenly see my monthly cable bill back at high prices. Alot of these videos are available on Netflix or will be and its only 1 bill. I could maybe see adding a niche channel if you are really into a certain genre for a couple dollars more a month, but not for 5.99+. 5.99 isn’t alot, I spent more than that on just lunch today, but when there are 30 different subscriptions it starts adding up real fast and defeats the purpose of why most of us have cut our cable cords.

    • pmcd says:

      I don’t think streaming videos,including TV,will end up saving most people money. Instead of having 600 channels, 590 of which are unappealing, you will have 10 you like for the same price running on a modern media player.

    • todd says:

      I too think the subscription rates are way too high. When I can get Netflix for $8, why do these guys think they can charge similar amounts for a vastly inferior selection?

      I’d think they need to drop to $2 or $3 to attract enough subscribers.

  8. William says:

    Thanks, as always for the information Elias, some of these people on here believe your the one responsible for pricing on this stuff. Chill People, Dang. Either subscribe or not. Quit complaining about pricing.

  9. Justin says:

    My only concern is that they will start pulling content from prime to push these addons. I’ve noticed some content listed is also on prime.

    Nice way to get content without having to use a separate and sometimes buggy app. I liked the content on indieflix for example but hated their app. I don’t like them and some other providess chopping up their content. Who is going to pay for only the mostly random short films indieflix has when their full subscription is only 2 dollars more?

    Most do look overpriced though some look decent and only way I know of to get starz separately from cable. Shudder looks the best of the horror offerings.

  10. Jay says:

    Thank you for all your efforts to put this together I did not know what the price point was of each and this definitely cleared things up for me. Thanks again

  11. jenn says:

    I am late to the party and completely missed this announcement. Shows from starz that I enjoyed, The White Queen and Outlander now require an additional subscription. I’m pretty irritated especially since I just let my prime account renew based on the having prime video as one of my perks. Not a happy girl.

  12. Ellen Larrow says:

    One thing about it you don’t have to buy any of them if you don’t want ton although my favorites are amazon prime Netflix hulu.

  13. Jp says:

    It’s states that contv is a 7 day free trial but I’m looking at my TV right now through amazon prime and it says 30 day free trial but does not tell me how to cancel the subscription if I’m not satisfied

    • Steve says:

      Yes, I’m not sure how to cancel it either. I’m going to straight to amazon customer service and just request it, instead of doing the goose chase to find the cancel button

  14. Steve says:

    Nevermind, I simply went to the dropdown, on the right side, under
    “Hello, Steve,
    Your Account”, and then click on “Your Video Subscriptions”.. it’s under there

  15. JHC says:

    Way overpriced, I was happy with Amazon Prime and they could have raised the fee. I would need at least 21 subscriptions to flip channels because I don’t want to watch shows or movies grouped together by a formula? I pick a few and I’m stuck – no different than ROKU etc.

  16. Mike says:

    TriBeCa’s Shortlist shows Silence if the Lamb cover but not in their list. It is watchable with prime. Why do they confuse us so much? Wait…. I know. $.
