The nights are drawing in, and while there are many things we love about summer — short sleeves and sandals, barbecues with friends, late balmy evenings — TV watching guilt is not one of them.


There’s something about a warm day and the sun streaming in that can take the joy out of catching up on your favourite shows or hunkering down for a movie night. "We should make the most of the summer while it lasts", you might think, ever so slightly resentfully.

Well, here’s the good news: the summer is over. And, Amazon has got just the thing to celebrate the start of autumn — their new channel, Lionsgate+.

Amazon is offering a 30-day UK free trial of the channel until 28th October. If you become a Prime member now, you'll get 30 days of Amazon Prime Video for free and 30 days free of Lionsgate+. We think that’s a pretty good way to start sofa-season in style.
