The Christian sitcom Peculiar is now available for streaming on Amazon Video! It’s free to view if you have Amazon Prime, and available for rent or purchase.
Until recently getting the show onto a major streaming service was near impossible- either because it wasn’t what the particular service wanted, or it would cost too much to use an aggregator. Amazon will let you place anything on their video streaming service, but unless you used an aggregator, it would be SD video, and could not be episodic. Meaning each episode of the show would be posted as a stand alone video, with no easy way to watch from one episode to the next. Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Video were out of reach.
Enter Amazon Video Direct. Amazon finally updated their submission protocols, and suddenly it was possible to upload all 10 HD episodes of Peculiar into an episodic listing. Currently, only the pilot is showing up, but all 10 episodes will be available soon.
