Content Types

Television/Episodic Content

Prime Video uses the term television to identify content that is episodic in nature. Television content is organized by series, seasons, and episodes as described below.

  • Series: This is the television show itself (e.g., "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel") and is the top-level distinguishing characteristic. Series are composed of one or more seasons, each with one or more episodes. It's possible to group similar, but significantly different, content under a different series (e.g., "The Best of SNL"). If you have specific questions about the best way to group titles, contact your Operations Account Manager.
  • Season: These are collections of individual episodes within a particular series. This is a reflection of traditional broadcast season cycles. For shows that are "non-episodic," collecting by broadcast year or production cycle (e.g., "The Daily Show") is recommended.
  • Episode: This is the individual title that customers see. Episodes are sequenced with other episodes in a season.
Example
  • Series: “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”
    • Season: "Season 1"
      • Episode 1: "Pilot"
      • Episode 2: "Ya Shivu v Bolshom Dome Na Kholme"
      • Bonus 0: "Bonus: Season 1 Official Trailer"
      • Bonus 0: "Bonus: Season 1 Behind-the-scenes"
      • Bonus 0: "An Inside Look at The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"

Movies

Prime Video uses the term movie to identify content that is standalone. Movie isn't limited to titles with theatrical releases, specific runtimes, or a specific subject matter.

Examples of content that should be classified as movie include the following:

  • Feature films (exceeds 80 minutes runtime)
  • Short films (less than 80 minutes runtime)
  • Documentaries, educational, or instructional content
  • "Made for TV" or "Direct-to-Video" titles
