Whether you use it or not you have probably heard of the online shopping monster known as Amazon. It is changing the online shopping game and changing how people shop in general. What you may not know is that Amazon produces its own original television content...and it's good. Joining HBO, Netflix and Hulu, Amazon is expanding into the online, binge-watching, stream from anywhere and anytime, watch from my phone on the go, television viewing world. They have been creating content the past several years, personally I didn't start watching until about a year ago. I finally gave them a chance. I mean if I can order a product in the morning, from my phone, at work, and get it before I get home that day - how bad could it be, right?.
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to like multiple Amazon shows. Not on the same level with as HBO and most Netflix shows, but they aren't that far off. Definitely better than Hulu (haven't watched anything Original Hulu, but I don't watch commercials so.......). Amazon delivers with Bosch, Catastrophe, Transparent, and Man in the High Castle. These shows could have all been on HBO or Netflix. Amazon Studios in joint production with NFL network, created a behind the scenes series called All or Nothing, premiering in July. Similar to HBO's Hard Knocks.
I think over time Amazon will find a much larger place in the ever expanding and emerging online digital market. They already have the name recognition and with the creation of good content, it's only a matter of time before people really take notice.

If you are looking for something new, or have been wanting to give Amazon a try, I strongly recommend it. Amazon Content is free if you have Amazon Prime. It is also available for a month by month purchase. Have you seen these shows? Let us know? Like, Comment, and Share with T3AM!
