Amazon is offering 50% off the first three months of subscription to select Prime Video Channels which offer access to popular movies and TV shows, Prime Originals and live sports.

The five channels included in the deal are Starzplay, Discovery, HPlay, MGM, Shudder, and Sundance now.


Stazplay offers binge-friendly series and movies including the Peep Show duo’s latest collaboration, Back. Expect to laugh out loud at David Mitchell and Robert Webb’s comedic take on the life’s harsh realities. The channel also offers the largest collection of vintage movies of all the main streaming platforms. If this has made you want to binge all of Peep Show, there’s also the whole box set on sale too.
