Amazon next month (September 2022) plans to add 125 new TV shows and movies to its Prime lineup, including the company’s most anticipated and expensive series ever as well as the debut of an exclusive (and also expensive) live sporting event.

The new titles will include The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, an Amazon original fantasy series based on the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien. The show, which is estimated to have cost more than $1 billion in licensing and production, tells the tale of the second age of Tolkien’s Middle Earth when elves and men must unite to stop evil forces, personified by the Dark Lord Sauron.

The Rings of Power is Amazon’s answer to HBO’s Game of Thrones and its success or failure could dramatically shape the future of Amazon Prime Video.

Also notable from Amazon in September: Amazon’s first exclusive Thursday Night Football game, which will pit the Kansas City Chiefs against the Los Angeles Chargers. The company agreed to pay $1 billion a year to the NFL for 11 years for the exclusive rights to the games which will stream every Thursday (free to Prime members) during the season starting with the Chiefs-Chargers game on September 15. (NBC will air the first Thursday night game this season with the Bills meeting the Rams on September 8.)

The combination of the Rings of Power and Thursday Night Football certainly makes Amazon Prime the streaming service to keep an eye on in September.
