New to Amazon Prime in September 2014


As usual there is some overlap of content between Amazon Prime and Netflix, but there are some titles unique to Prime, including some Amazon original TV series. Pilots for new shows are available for free for all viewers (even non-subscribers), and only those highly rated among viewers will continue on as Amazon Original Series'.
