Sries Tv: the 20 Best Sries on Amazon Prime Video

When thinking about a VOD service by subscription, the first reflex is to quote Netflix. However, the market leader is far from being the only player in this field. For some time now, Amazon has been bending its weapons with ever-increasing productions.

Above all, Amazon offers a significant advantage over Netflix: all subscribers to the Primeservice, which offers free shipping and 24-hour delivery, also benefit from its Prime VideoVOD offer. Sometimes without even knowing it. Thus, for 49 euros per year, or 6 euros per month, it is possible to enjoy the benefits ofAmazon Prime, but also Prime Video, compared to a minimum of eight euros per month for Netflix.

Above all, Amazon also benefits from several exclusive or cult series, such as Netflix. These include American Gods or Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams among Prime Videos’ original productions, as well as The Shield , Community or Seinfeld among the cult series included in the service. Amazon is also preparing a major series based on the franchise of Lord of the Rings , to finally fight Netflix. A series which should however arrive in a few years from now.
