If you have Amazon Prime, you might be thinking about getting HBO Max when it comes out next year. And why not? HBO Max will have tons of great content and the price is right — if you already have Amazon Prime, that is. But did you know that an Amazon Prime subscription will cost you $14 per month on top of your existing Amazon Prime subscription? If you don’t want to pay an extra $14 per month, then you may want to consider another streaming service like Netflix or Hulu.

What is a Streaming Service


A streaming service is exactly what it sounds like—it’s a subscription that gives you access to content via an internet connection. There are many streaming services available Some are free and others require a monthly fee. The cost of these services ranges from $8 to $15 per month (or slightly more), depending on how many channels you want and whether or not you want HD quality. Although there are some differences between them, they all offer something similar: instant entertainment at home by tapping into online libraries filled with TV shows, movies, and special events.

What is HBO Max


HBO Max is a new streaming service that offers everything from Game of Thrones to Silicon Valley and more. It’s a subscription-based streaming service from HBO, making it an easy way to access some of your favorite series without having to buy every season separately or watch them on cable. However, much like most streaming services, you have to pay for it. On top of what you pay your internet provider and/or cable company each month, you’ll also have to fork over $15 per month for the privilege. Considering that many companies offer free trials with no strings attached, we recommend trying out one of those before signing up for any paid version.

How Much Does an Amazon Prime Subscription Cost


Amazon Prime is a yearly subscription service that costs $119. The subscription price varies by country. You get for nothing 2-day shipping, entry to Amazon’s library of main TV shows and movies, as well as other perks like Prime Music, Audible Channels, and Kindle Lending Library. In some cases, you can also opt for monthly installments (typically $12.99). Amazon’s current pricing is available here.

How much does an HBO subscription cost Amazon Prime?


With more and more high-quality content being released each year, it’s easy to see why people are signing up for HBO (now known as HBO Max) in droves. Despite its expanding line-up, however, you might be surprised to learn that a basic subscription costs an average of $16.99 per month—and that’s only for a limited plan. The majority of available plans start at around $10/month and go all the way up to $28/month (in fact, there are seven different options). If you want access to everything on HBO Max—including popular movies and premium sports programming—you’ll need to pay anywhere from $14.99-$18.99 per month.

If I cancel my Amazon Prime, can I get it back Amazon Prime?


It’s not quite free to get your hands on HBO’s new streaming service. The internet video-on-demand behemoth is offering three months of free membership, but there’s a pretty big catch. If you watch your favorite shows on Amazon Prime, you won’t be able to stream them for at least four more weeks. Luckily, if you cancel within that window and sign up again in four weeks or less, you get another three months added to your account. What happens if I move? Not a problem! Amazon awards 30-day money-back security for customers who decide they don’t want their Prime subscription anymore—but it could cost $119 per year to cancel after that initial time period.

Do streaming services like Netflix have commercials?


If you’re like most Americans, you enjoy binge-watching your favorite television shows at home. But while streaming services have made it much easier to watch your favorite movies and shows from home, they may also come with an unexpected cost: advertising. While many streaming services don’t have commercials, those that do may surprise you with a commercial when you least expect it. If you’re paying for an Amazon Prime subscription, can you really afford to be surprised by ads on any of your entertainment?

What are the costs of streaming services like Netflix and Hulu if you don’t have cable television?


Many consumers are cutting the cord and ditching the cable. The convenience and selection of streaming services often make them an appealing choice, but many find they still need an Internet connection in order to watch their favorite shows or movies. If you’re paying for cable, consider cutting it out completely—after all, with Hulu Plus, Netflix, and Amazon Prime at your disposal, there’s no real reason to pay for one big bundle anymore. You can also try combining services to save money; for example, if you have a TV and PlayStation console (or any other combination) you can stream directly from them using Roku or Apple TV devices instead of paying separately for each piece of equipment.

Why should I pay for all these subscriptions when I can stream videos on YouTube without paying anything at all.
You can watch some shows on YouTube or even subscribe to Netflix, which comes with a wealth of content. However, it’s never as simple as that when it comes to entertainment. For example, you can use YouTube to watch The Bachelorette but if you want to see RuPaul’s Drag Race then you have to pay for Shudder (which is also part of AMC Networks). As far as network shows go, the cable is usually your best bet. Even though there are many ways to get TV without paying anything at all, we recommend going straight through your cable provider because they have a much better selection and will likely offer exclusive content for their subscribers too.

Are there any other benefits to having all these different subscriptions?


The answer to that is, yes. For one thing, it means you can be watching a movie on Netflix while your spouse or roommate is streaming something different on Amazon Prime. It also means you’re not restricted to any particular genre; someone could be watching a show about politics and international affairs while someone else catches up on a new reality competition show (or vice versa). Being subscribed to three or four services also gives you access to more movies and TV shows than if you were just subscribed to one service.
