Amazon Prime: All the movies and TV shows being added in August

by Brandon Russell | July 20, 2015July 20, 2015 3:00 pm PST

In August, Amazon’s Prime Instant Video will be a goldmine of excellent new content, proving again that Netflix isn’t the only streaming service in town. In some respects, Amazon’s model might be a tad bit superior (content is another topic entirely). Not only will customers get plenty of new free movies and TV to stream, but plenty of content to purchase, too. I’ve already made up my mind: I’m buying Mad Max: Fury Road when it hits Amazon on Aug. 11.

Unfortunately, the amount of free content hitting the service pales in comparison to the amount of purchasable content. Be that as it may, there is still plenty to watch, including A Most Violent Year, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Unforgiven and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (just kidding, that movie was not good).

On the flipside, you might want to start putting money aside now in anticipation of next month. Amazon Prime is adding more than 10 new TV shows, and a few dozen movies, too, including the aforementioned Fury Road. The movie side is a little light on quality: you might be interested in seeing The Descendants or The Runner. But the real quality is on the TV side.

Amazon Prime will offer The Amazing World of Gumball (season 7), House of Cards (season 3) Homeland (season 4) and The Killing (season 4), among other TV shows. Not bad, and should keep viewers plenty busy.

Below is the full list of free and purchasable content.
