Can I watch live TV on Amazon Prime?


Yes, but the options are limited.

Typical live broadcasts in the sense of cable TV, such as ABC, CBS, CNN, ESPN, Fox, etc., cannot be used as the main video channel. To watch those you need to subscribe to cable or live TV streaming services like YouTube TV or Sling TV, starting at $35 per month.


Amazon does provide a "live guide," however, this includes TV shows and movies arranged in a grid of channels. Some are free and do not require subscription, and some are unlocked when you subscribe to the channel. For example, when you subscribe to Discovery Plus Prime Video Channel, you can find Fixer Upper Channel in the live guide.
