Amazon just launched the 14 pilot episodes for its original series showdown — six kids shows and eight comedies. Surely at least one of these programs will be good. Actually, we’re pretty excited for a few of them. Here’s how you can get them in Australia.
The new shows dropped just a few days after the not-so-promising trailer for Zombieland dropped. For those of you unfamiliar, this pilot program is Amazon’s unique way of developing original content. Like Hulu and Netflix, Amazon is attempting to lure customers in to its streaming video services with original content. But rather than produce a whole series that may or may not be good — they’re new at this, after all — Amazon has decided to launch a bunch of pilots and then ask customers to give them feedback about what they like.
I know what you’re going to say: ‘But we’re in Australia and I can’t stream Amazon content here’. Quit whining. Go read this and never be geoblocked from good content again. [Amazon]
