If you are familiar with the wealth of content that Prime Video has to offer, and there really are a lot of TV and movies on there, you will likely have seen a selection of channels that have even more material on there to while away the hours.
But with so many channels to choose from, all with their own cost attached, you would be forgiven for not trying them out yet. Each of them does have a free trial, normally 30 days, but again, with such a wide selection, getting the most out of them in such a short space of time can be a challenge.
