What to watch on Amazon Prime Video and Amazon Channels this weekend

Not sure what to watch this weekend? This is often the time to turn to streaming services for something new to watch. Amazon Prime Video can often be a popular place for movies and TV shows.

There’s nothing new over the weekend on Amazon Prime Video, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to watch. Plenty was added to the streaming service during the week to stream now.

We can also turn to Amazon Channels for help to fill in the gaps. Here’s a look at the notable shows and movies to stream this weekend, Oct. 17-18.

Time and What the Constitution Means to Me

Keep the focus on Amazon movies right now. Both Time and What the Constitution Means to Me are now available to stream on Amazon Prime Video, and you’ve got all weekend to watch them both.

More from Amazon

They are timely movies, one based on systemic racism and the other all about democracy and voting. Even if you just have time for one of them this weekend, you won’t be disappointed.

Prefer a horror movie?

If you want horror, you can watch the two new additions earlier this week. Evil Eye and Nocturne dropped on Amazon Prime Video. They’re both part of the Welcome to Blumhouse additions, joining The Lie and Black Box from the previous week.

The two aren’t traditional horrors. While there are a few jump scares, there are focuses on different cultures and belief systems, as well as supernatural horrors.

What to watch with Amazon Channels

Of course, Amazon Channels are always a good place to turn for new content. This weekend has the Lovecraft Country season finale, which is sure to bring us answers to all the burning questions we have. The Vow‘s finale will also air in the hour afterward. You can watch both with HBO through Amazon Channels.

Prefer historical fiction focused on strong women and the Tudor period in England? Turn your attention to The Spanish Princess. Part 2 continues with the second episode, focusing on both Catherine of Aragon and Margaret Pole.
