Black Friday is commonly associated with discounts on tech and big-ticket appliances, but sometimes, the most exciting deals can't be packed and shipped in a box. Tons of the world's most popular video and streaming platforms have slashed prices on subscription packages for the occasion. It's the perfect time to try the one you've been eyeing — because what's the holiday season without endless entertainment at your fingertips?
Some of Amazon Prime Video's most popular streaming channels are now available for $1.99 for the first two months. Depending on the channel, that could save you up to $18 per year; for context, its popular movie and docuseries channel Starz is usually $8.99 per month, while Showtime clocks in at $10.99 per month. To access these deals, you'll need to have a Prime membership, so if you don't currently have one sign up now for a 30-day free trial.
