The History Channel you grew up with lives on as the newest add-on subscription option for Amazon Prime Video


The History Channel’s lineup today is probably not how you remember it. Instead of documentaries and historical fiction series, it’s full of reality TV shows like Pawn Stars and Swamp People. If you yearn for The History Channel of the past, then you’ll be happy to hear that Amazon Prime Video’s newest add-on subscription option is just that. History Vault, the latest addition to Amazon’s lineup up of subscription content, gives you access to hundreds of hours of curated historical video, without any of the reality TV found on the History Channel today. The new add-on subscription costs $4.99 per month and includes a 7-day free trial. For your money you get access to 20 different shows like America: The Story of Us, Vietnam in HD, and Ancient Discoveries.

Amazon originally introduced their add-on subscription options with 30 choices and have added a few more since for the current total of 35 subscriptions to choose from. You must be an Amazon Prime member in order to subscribe to the extra content, which is now fully accessible on the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick thanks to the latest 5.0.5 software update.

    A reflection of corporate greed. Remember when TLC stood for The Learning Channel. I used to watch the Science Channel and would like to see it offered.

    This I would sign up for.
    Hopefully they’ll add more series to the catalog.
