Original content is one feature that can set each streaming service apart from the competition. Originals like Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and Netflix’s Stranger Things have become some of the most watched and most talked about shows on TV today.
If you want to catch these original series, you might be able to watch without a subscription to the streaming service that produces them. Amazon Prime has many original shows from streaming services available for free with Amazon Prime, others to rent or buy to stream, and some available on DVD.
Some of the shows with episodes you can purchase and watch through Amazon include:
- Star Trek Discovery
- The Good Fight
- Star Trek: Picard (Coming Soon)
- Handmaid’s Tale
- Orange is the New Black
If you prefer watching seasons of your favorite shows on DVD instead of streaming, you can find many originals from streaming services in the DVD section as well, including:
If you’re thinking about subscribing to another streaming service just to watch one show, even an original series, there might be better options. Compare the price of buying episodes or full seasons through Amazon for a one-time fee rather than paying for a monthly subscription.
