New to Amazon Prime Video in February


Amazon Prime Video will become the exclusive subscription streaming orbit for The Expanse next month — ahead of season four’s premiere later in the year.

Seasons 1–3 of the award-winning sci-fi series about man’s colonisation of the solar system will stream globally on Prime from February 8.

Also new next month will be several significant documentaries: Generation Wealth (February 1), Lorena (February 15) and The Giant Beast That is the Global Economy (February 22).

Generation Wealth investigates the pathologies that have created the richest society the world has ever seen while Giant is a Kal Penn series about the unexpected quirks, interconnections, and manipulations of the global economy that impact us all.

Lorena reveals the hidden truths in the notorious case of John Wayne and Lorena Bobbitt and challenges the long-held narrative that surrounded this event.

As well as providing a fresh perspective, the four-part series explores how this event laid the groundwork for the modern 24-hour news cycle and increasingly sensationalistic media coverage.

And making their Prime debut on February 1 will be the first three movies in the Jurassic Park franchise.

  1. I’m sure glad that Amazon picked up The Expanse after SyFy dropped it. Great programme.

  2. What’s happening with The Expanse? I can’t seem to find it on Amazon.

  3. No sign of The Expanse on Amazon Prime in NZ yet. Has Sky NZ still got the streaming rights perhaps?

  4. Thanks for highlighting this, Brendan and James. Have asked Amazon Prime NZ to clarify and it’s investigating.

  5. Bad news, James and Brendon. Amazon Prime jumped the gun with its Expanse announcement. Turns out it doesn’t have the NZ rights. They appear to be split between Sky (for linear broadcast) and Lightbox (for streaming). Sky’s aired all three seasons while Lightbox has the first two on its platform. It’s not known when S3 will be available to stream. Contractural arrangements re S4 aren’t clear but it won’t be on Amazon Prime NZ. According to a spokesperson: “Apologies but The Expanse will no longer be coming to New Zealand.”

  6. Guess I can still watch season 4 on Amazon Prime US.
