As of Tuesday, December 8, 2015, Amazon Prime started offering a slew of ‘premium’ TV channels on a monthly subscription fee basis.

As far as I can see all these TV channels, 25 in total, are being offered on a 1-month FREE ‘try-it-and-see’ subscription basis and Amazon, cutely, does NOT specify the monthly price for any …

But here are the prices to the best that I can work them out. The subscription for Acorn (which I already subscribe to) is the same, at $4.99, as what I pay through Roku.

The Starz and Showtime prices at $8.99/month are not bad.

1. Starz =  $8.99 per month

2. Showtime =  $8.99 per month

3. Acorn TV =  $4.99 per month

     (per ascending order of price)

4. Fear Factory = $2.99 per month

5. RingTV  = $2.99 per month

6. Dove Channel = $2.99 per month

7. Warriors and Gangsters = $2.99 per month

8. Monsters and Nightmares = $2.99 per month

9. Film Forum = $2.99 per month

10. IndieFlix Shorts = $2.99 per month

11. Comedy Central Stand-up Plus = $3.99 per month

12. LifeTime Movie Club = $3.99 per month

13. DramaFever Instant = $3.99 per month

14. ScreenJunkies = $4.99 per month

15. Shudder = $4.99 per month

16. ConTV = $4.99 per month

17. Cinefest =  $4.99 per month

18. Tribeca Shortlist = $4.99 per month

19. UMC =  $4.99 per month

20. CuriosityStream = $5.99 per month

21. HooplaKidz = $5.99 per month

22. Acacia TV = $6.99 per month

23. SundanceNow Doc Club = $6.99 per month

24. Ello Concerts. = $7.99 per month

25. Gaia = $9.95 per month

DirecTV, as all my ‘Why I Hate DirecTV posts‘ graphically portray, is one of the worst U.S. corporations ever.

They lie, they cheat, they deceive, they extort money from you.

Their lies: They claim that NO SOUND with HDMI is not there problem. Check my sidebar (>>>>) … scroll down to “Top Posts & Pages“. My post on HOW to fix this DirecTV fault gets, on average, 30 hits a day, and has for 11 months.

We all know how badly AT&T sucks.

So this is a marriage made in hell to make poor customers suffer.

My DirecTV countdown clock, again on the sidebar (>>>>), tells me I have 13 months left. I will ditch DirecTV the day the contract expires.


DirecTV To Boot ‘The Weather Channel’ — No Great Loss As Far As I Am Concerned. Weather Channel Does Nothing For Me.

Though viscerally I find it hard to agree with anything that DirecTV says or does, given the boatloads of unmitigated abuse I had had from them, I do have to say, albeit very grudgingly, I have no problem, whatsoever, of them getting rid of ‘The Weather Channel‘. I will even say Bravo (and I am not referring to the channel).

To me, ‘The Weather Channel’ is a total waste of time — though to be fair I really never watch it! If I want weather on TV I go to a local station, even one in Boston. To say that ‘The Weather Channel’ shows local weather around the clock is a fallacy. They have so much useless crud that it is impossible to actually ever get what you want — in my opinion. I don’t even know what channel it is on! That alone tells me that I have no use for it. With the channels that I watch: CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, DISC, SCI, TLC, DEST, BBCA, HIST, HIST2 etc. etc. I know either the exact channel number or what range I can find it within, e.g., in the high 200s or middle 300s. No clue with ‘The Weather Channel’. So, I say: GRBR.

As DirecTV points out there are better resources. WMUR does have an APP and I do have it on my pad — and even used it for the first time yesterday, though without luck, to see how much snow accumulation we were supposed to get from the MLK weekend storm. So, I have no problem with DirecTV getting rid of those useless bums — and this will probably be the ONLY time I will agree with anything that DirecTV does.

I rely a LOT on ‘wunderground.com‘ for my local weather. They are wunderful!

As ever, given that they can’t get anything right — other than overbilling us — they got this wrong too.

They started populating the electronic guide on Saturday — though the Channels were not available till yesterday.

I think that that was phising.
am sure some people hit ‘OK’ on the automatic prompt and inadvertently signed up for HBO, Cinemax etc!

So check your bill next month. You might have signed up without realizing.

But it is FREE, for the week, as of yesterday.

I already recorded one movie last night.

Seen most of them!
