Amazon is kicking off Prime Day early, with select discounts on streaming services dropping available ahead of this year's bi-annual sales extravaganza.

While it might not be as eye-catching as a sweet discount on a Samsung smartphone or the ability to bundle a grab bag of smart home gadgets together, one of the better bargains going around as part of this year's Prime Day lets you snag some solid savings on select Amazon Prime Video channels.

If you're not familiar, Channels is a sub-section of Amazon's Prime Video streaming service that lets you allow you to bundle additional content from other streaming services into your Amazon Prime Video subscription. Doing this doesn't usually save you any extra money. It's more a matter of convenience. However, that's not the case during this year's Prime Day promotion.

The biggest bargains here can be had by those eyeing off either Paramount Plus and AMC Plus. When it comes to these streaming services, those who sign up via Amazon Prime Video Channels before 12 July 2023 will score 3 months of access at half the usual price.

Instead of paying $8.99 per month, you're looking at $4.49 per month for the next quarter streaming original series like Yellowjackets, Yellowstone and Interview with the Vampire. After that point, you'll be bumped up to the usual rate. Fortunately, there's no lock-in contract associated with either service so you're entirely free to leave when the honeymoon ends or you run out of stuff to watch.

The AMC+ channel on Amazon Prime Video Channels includes all the content you’d get from subscribing to Shudder and AcornTV, plus a bunch of additional content produced by the AMC.

On top of this headline promotion, there's also a second one running that covers a lot of the smaller or more specialised streaming add-ons available via Amazon's catalog.

Sign up for any of the following Amazon Prime Video Channels before 12 July 2023 and you'll only pay $0.99 per month for the first two months you stick with the optional add-on. The price you pay after that, and the content that signing up at all gets you will vary, but the potential savings are pretty significant all the same.
