Frequently Asked Questions
Here, we will try to answer some questions that you may have.
“Will I Get a Refund?”
If you cancel your subscription before your trial period ends, then nothing will be taken out of your pockets. Unfortunately, you will not get any refunds after you paid for the subscription.
” Will My Subscription Stop Immediately?”
Fortunately, it won’t. You will be able to use your Prime benefits until the end date. You can see this date under the membership section of the Prime Video website or under the “Your Prime Membership” section of the Amazon website.
“Why is Prime Video and Amazon Prime Different?”
Amazon Prime offers you a whole lot of benefits, which includes the streaming service and the free fast shipping. Prime Video is for the customers who only want the streaming service. They won’t be able to use other Prime benefits. However, the best part is that Prime Video is significantly cheaper than the Amazon Prime subscription.
“What are the Prime Video Channels?”
Even though Amazon Prime has a lot of amazing content, subscribers won’t get access to a lot of shows from CBS, HBO, Showtime, etc. Fortunately for the Prime Video users, Amazon will let you add these channels for a small fee. These are the Prime Video Channels and you can see them popping up in the Prime Video app or website. They usually come with a free trial period and that’s why we covered how to cancel them.
However, note that access to Prime Video Channels does not mean that you can use the standalone streaming apps from other networks. For example, Being subscribed to the HBO Prime Video channel does not mean you get access to HBO Now or HBO Go. The prices for the HBO channel subscription and HBO Now are the same. However, Amazon lets you subscribe easily and you won’t have to go through the hassle of creating new accounts.
