To sign up for one of these new services, you need to have an Amazon Prime account in place – even a 30-day free trial will work. Then, you’ll be able to watch your Starz and/or Showtime subscription right along with your other Amazon Prime Videos on any supported device, including Roku streaming players and Amazon Fire TV.

Each service – Showtime or Starz – costs $8.99 per month after the initial free 7-day trial. The trial is absolutely free and won’t cost you anything. If you don’t want to continue, you’ll need to go into your video subscriptions settings in and cancel before the trial period expires.

You could do a lot of binge TV watching in 7 days! Sign up for a Starz free trial, and you can find hit TV shows such as Outlander, plus hit movies, including Inside Out, Big Hero 6, Ant Man and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Join Showtime’s free trial, and you can watch original series such as House of Lies and Homeland. You’ll can also view popular movies, plus numerous big-name boxing matches, sports shows and documentaries.

Cord cutters (and potential cord cutters) have waited a long time for premium cable channels to start disengaging themselves from cable and satellite providers. Many people already subscribe to Amazon Prime for the two-day shipping, streaming TV and movies along with other perks. Now, there’s yet another reason – streaming on-demand Starz and Showtime.

    Not into Showtime or Starz, but am wanting to cut the cord with cable. I’m more of a local news person, but grabbing news off the Internet isn’t the same. I will figure this out cuz it’s a waste of $$$
