How to subscribe to Amazon Prime?

Before you can even start taking in some MLB action on Amazon Prime via your television, tablet, computer or cellphone you have to first become a member.

  • Go to Prime Video
  • Click on the “sign-in” tab in the top right corner
  • Then hit “create your account”
  • From there you will be prompted to create a name, password, and set up an email for the account
  • Then follow the instructions for setting up your membership type and how you want to be billed

Amazon Prime Live TV doesn’t necessarily broadcast in the traditional sense like folks are used to where cable providers offer networks like ABC, NBC, and Fox with their basic subscriptions. While they do have a huge selection of free movies and shows on “channels”, much of the premium content — especially live Amazon Prime Sports — will require a subscription to a particular service.

For example, an NBA League Pass channel is offered, with a 30-day free trial, for $14.99 each month, or the Cinemax channel is offered with a 7-day free trial at a $9.99 cost per month.

Is MLB TV free with Amazon Prime?

Amazon Prime MLB TV is another channel available on Prime Video. Unfortunately, it is not free and is the best way to watch Amazon MLB games. If you are interested in subscribing to the service they offer two options. An All Team Pass for $24.99 a month, or a Single Team Pass for one payment of $99.99.
