Looking for TV shows on Amazon Prime that aren’t on Netflix or Hulu? Like the other streaming services, Amazon has a bunch of their own “originals” that you won’t find anywhere else. In my opinion, it’s these shows that really help you get the most out of your subscription. If you look at the movie selections between Amazon and Netflix, chances are you’ll find a ton of duplicates. I honestly can’t think of a time when I went in search of a movie on Netflix, didn’t find it, then found it on Amazon or vice-versa. Shows, on the other hand, are a totally different story. Keep reading for a few great shows on Amazon Prime that you won’t find anywhere else.
