MGM+ now costs $6.99 a month following a $1 price increase. The price increase took effect today for new subscribers and existing subscribers can expect the monthly cost of their subscription to increase by the same $1 beginning next month.

Amazon purchased MGM in 2021, and following approval of the deal in 2022, Amazon rebranded the EPIX streaming service as MGM+ in early 2023. Since then, the cost of a subscription has remained priced at $5.99 a month.

That has now changed, however. Those attempting to sign up for a subscription through the MGM+ website today will be charged the new monthly rate of $6.99. Likewise, the annual plan has also increased to $58.99, up from the previous $49.99 rate.

While new customers will pay the higher price beginning today, existing subscribers have another month before their price increase takes effect. Amazon is increasing the price of MGM+ for existing subscribers on March 1, 2024. As is typically the case with price increases, the exact date an individual subscriber will pay the higher rate will depend on their individual billing cycle, with March 1 being the very earliest.

Along with the increase through the MGM+ website, Amazon has also already increased the price of MGM+ subscriptions purchased through Prime Video Channels. Once again, existing MGM+ subscribers who signed up through Prime Video Channels can expect their price to increase on or after March 1, depending on their individual billing cycle.

As a reminder, Amazon is still running a promotion where new Fire TV device purchases come with the option of redeeming six months of MGM+ for free. To qualify for this promotion, the new Fire TV device needs to be activated before September 20, 2024. With the price of MGM+ having now increased by $1 a month, this promotion now results in another $6 worth of savings.
