What is the Cost?

There are various costs associated with Amazon Digital, depending on what sort of content you choose to subscribe to.

The cost of Amazon Prime is $14.99 per month or $139 annually.

This fee covers unlimited streaming of Amazon video channels, free delivery, exclusive deals, an improved shopping experience, and more.

Prime Video by itself will cost you $8.99 per month.

You can also choose to subscribe to a variety of popular channels including the following:

  • AMC+
  • Boomerang
  • Cinemax
  • Discovery+
  • Disney+
  • Epix
  • Hallmark Movies Now
  • Lifetime Movie Club
  • MLB TV
  • NBA TV
  • NBA League Pass
  • Paramount+
  • PBS Kids
  • Showtime
  • Shudder
  • Starz

The cost to subscribe to these channels through Amazon Digital ranges from $4.99 per month to $9.99 per month.

With that said, Amazon will offer you a free trial of up to 7 days to test out the channel before you financially commit to a subscription, and your card is charged the additional monthly fee.

How Do I Track Amazon Digital Charges?


It’s actually quite easy to identify and track Amazon digital charges.

In fact, each additional charge for digital content through Amazon will be marked as “Amazon Digital”.

You will notice that this is a different label from the Prime subscription charge.

As with any online service, if you see a charge that you are unfamiliar with, you might want to look into it through your Amazon account.

Amazon Prime offers tons of free trials through their Amazon Digital content.

However, if you forget to cancel these free trials in time, they will automatically enroll you in the subscription to the channel and charge your card.

I always setup a “cancellation reminder” on my smartphone so I don’t forget to cancel and and thus avoid getting charged.

How Do I Cancel Amazon Digital Services?

Amazon makes it kinda hard (on purpose) to figure out where you go to cancel your digital services.

First, from a desktop or laptop computer, go to the “Your Account” page on the Amazon website.

Next, click on “Your apps” which you’ll find in the “Digital contents and Devices” section.

Then click on “Your subscriptions” which you’ll find in the “Manage” section on the right side.

This will take you to the “Your Subscriptions” page.

If you want to cancel any of your subscriptions, click on the “Actions” tab and then turn off auto-renewal.

By turning off auto-renewal, it prevents any further Amazon digital charges for that particular service.

I actually just did this with Disney+ as we were not watching it very much and I don’t think my kids will even notice.

Is Amazon Digital a Part of Amazon Prime?


Amazon Digital is a part of Amazon Prime BUT you can still pay a monthly fee to access digital services without a Prime membership.

If you aren’t familiar with Amazon Prime, where have you been?

Amazon Prime is the largest subscription service in the world.

It offers plenty of benefits to its subscribers including convenient shopping perks, delivery benefits, and even unlimited access to tons of digital content.

However, the content options through Amazon Digital go far beyond what is offered through Amazon Prime.

For that reason, you can expect to incur some additional charges when you choose to take full advantage of all that Amazon Digital has to offer.
