The Best Shows To Stream On Amazon Right Now

Todd Van Luling

Amazon really wants to be a part of your life. The more you stream, the more potential there is for you to click over to buy something on their service. More recently there’s also that Alexa thing that everyone seems to kind of want but isn’t sure whether to trust yet. Regardless, Amazon is officially ubiquitous. 

If the video component of Amazon Prime ― which mainly offers shipping advantages when buying products ― seems very much like a side project, that’s because it is a side project. But so far, the company has seemingly committed to creating pretty great shows. They also have rights to the HBO library. Against all odds, Amazon is an enticing service to stream with ― and there’s a good chance you already have a subscription.

For the weekend of Aug. 25, Streamline is recommending “I Love Dick” in the top spot for Amazon. The show wrapped up its first season earlier this summer, but is still worth revisiting. The newest show on this list is currently “The Tick” which debuted on Friday, Aug. 25. Critics have given the show mostly positive reviews, but it’s probably not for everyone.
