Hidden gems on Amazon Prime Instant Video
For many years, Netflix has reigned supreme as the top video subscription service. But now a challenger has appeared to stake their claim for that title: Amazon Prime Video. Estimates in early 2016 put the number of Netflix subscribers at around 47 million, while Amazon now has 54 million Prime members. Even though many of those members don't use the video services included with their membership, Amazon continues to build its Prime Video offerings. They've started providing original movies and shows of their own, and recently created a "Prime Video" monthly subscription option for $8.99 per month, for customers who want to try their video services without committing to $99 a year.
If you're a member of Amazon Prime, but haven't really used the Prime Instant Video service yet, definitely take the time to check out what's available. The offerings change from time to time, but just like Netflix, Amazon's catalog includes plenty of awesome movies. To help you out, we've compiled a list of some of the top "hidden gems" on Amazon Prime Video as of September 2016. We've included recent films that flew under the radar, as well as some older classics that you may not have seen yet. Be sure to add them to your watchlist!
