Streaming might be the current medium of choice for binge-watching your favorite series or curating a living room movie marathon, but never count out physical media — you never know when streaming deals will change and your favorite TV shows and movies won’t be available on your streaming subscriptions.
That’s why it’s worth looking at these deeply discounted best-selling TV box sets and movie franchise collections, which are available through tomorrow morning as a part of Amazon Prime Day’s mega two-day celebration, which offers deals on nearly every type of item the company sells from October 13 to 14.
Available on DVD in some cases and Blu-ray in others, the TV titles come from a wide range of genres — the ultimate “Twin Peaks” collection for David Lynch fans, or the complete series of anime classic “Cowboy Bebop” — and the movie titles are generally of the blockbuster variety — your “Mission: Impossible,” your “Fast and Furious,” your “Rocky,” your “Bourne,” your “Hunger Games.”
Deals are available to Amazon Prime subscribers only, so you can sign up here for a 30-day free trial if you don’t have an account already. After the trial, you’ll be charged $12.99 a month or $119 a year.
Your Amazon Prime membership gives you access to free two-day shipping (which makes the program so popular) as well as Prime Video, ad-free music streaming, unlimited photo storage, and unlimited reading. Students or those with a valid EBT/Medicaid card may be eligible for discounted memberships, too.
In addition to these box sets, there’s also plenty of movie-centric merch and toys, Bluetooth speakers, wireless earbuds, noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones, soundbars, TVs, and many, many more deals. And some already available deals include discounts on Fire TV devices, Toshiba Smart TVs, and up to a 50% discount on select titles to rent or buy via Prime Video. However, there’s a lot more to come — and we’ll round up the best deals here. Read on for the biggest TV and movie deals, and check back over the next two days for more deep discounts as we add them throughout the 2020 Prime Day event.
