MGM launched MGM+ (previously known as Epix) in 2008, with the desire to create a premium cable and satellite network. Ever since Michael Wright took over in 2017, MGM+ shifted its focus to original programming. It also offers movie classics you don’t often see on TV, documentaries, and comedy specials.
You can subscribe to MGM+ directly, but it’s also possible to access it via other streaming services. It’s available as a channel on Amazon Prime Video, but not in its default package. Would you like to learn how to watch MGM+ on APV in 2023? Keep reading for a detailed explanation!
Do you get MGM+ for free with Amazon Prime Video?
According to the latest information, MGM+ isn’t a part of any default APV subscription tiers. Even if you get Amazon Prime monthly and receive APV included in the deal, you won’t be able to watch this channel. Instead, you need to activate it as an extra add-on.
You first need to have at least the basic APV subscription set. You must then activate this add-on at a small additional monthly cost.
If you’re not sure and you are not yet an Amazon Prime member, there’s another option for you. When starting a new Amazon Prime subscription, you will receive a 30-day Prime free trial, as well as seven days of MGM+ free. With this, you can test out the service and see if it is worth it for you. When the MGM+ free trial expires, you can choose to continue paying the normal monthly price for the add-on.
Here’s how to get MGM+ on Amazon Prime Video in 2023.
The first thing you need to do is to subscribe to the service. If you are a new Amazon Prime client, you can activate it as an add-on during the registration process.
If you already have an APV membership, these are the steps to follow:
- Access your Amazon Prime Video account from a web browser or app.
- Head to Channels in the main navigation menu.
- Find MGM+ or search for it by name.
- Activate the subscription and the trial will begin.
- Enjoy watching MGM+ on Amazon Prime Video!
We emphasize once again that MGM+ is a premium add-on on APV. The channel requires an additional payment.
Here’s how to cancel your MGM+ free trial on Amazon.
If you feel that MGM+ isn’t your cup of tea, it’s possible to cancel the free trial. However, please be sure to cancel it during the test week, or you risk APV charging you for the channel.
Here’s how to remove MGM+ as the Amazon Prime Video add-on:
- Access your APV account from a web browser or app.
- From the main menu, pick the channel management option.
- Among the Prime Video channels, locate MGM+.
- Select the Cancel option and validate your choice again.
Is MGM+ on Amazon Prime Video a wise investment?
Metro Goldwyn Mayer launched MGM+ with the idea of offering premium content to its users. At this point, the network has thousands of cinema blockbusters and classics. But MGM+’s strongest suit is original content.
The leading titles available on the network include:
- Deep State – Here’s a top-quality spy thriller.
- Get Shorty – Ray Romano and Chris O’Dowd star in this comedic gem.
- Pennyworth – This tells the story of Alfred, Batman’s butler, and his origin.
- Godfather of Harlem – Forest Whitaker produces and stars in this award-winning original drama series.
- NFL: The Grind – Here’s an exciting weekly series dedicated to American football.
MGM+ has an excellent selection of high-quality movies and series, making it a worthwhile value for the money. It also comes with a free trial, so don’t hesitate to give it a shot to see if it fits your desires!
