Marvel comics, TV series, new movies and streaming service subscriptions are all on sale today as part of Amazon’s Digital Day.

Amazon confirmed yesterday that it would be discounting “thousands” of items, including games and other digital items, as part of the year-end sale. Due to the amount of items on sale, browsing the main deal page can be a little daunting, so we’ve broken down some of the better deals that are available.

Just a reminder: this is Amazon’s Digital Day sale, meaning all of the items listed below are downloads instead of physical copies.


Amazon has categorized its deals on movies according to sale price. There are a select amount available for $4.99, $5.99, $6.99 and $9.99.

Under the $4.99 section, you’ll be able to find each of the Harry Potter films, The Dark Knight, Inception, The Hobbit, Now You See Me, Divergent, Whiplash, Edge of Tomorrow and others. Most of the films in the $4.99 category are relatively older, but there are a couple of movies available from this year. Michael Bay’s 13 Hours, which stars John Krasinski, is on sale for $5.

In the mid-tier category, which includes films for $5.99 and $6.99, Ride Along 2, Star Trek: Beyond and X-Men Apocalypse can all be purchased. Alternatively, most of these films can be rented for $0.99, as part of the ongoing deal.

For $9.99, Deadpool, Pete’s Dragon, The BFG, Sausage Party, Legend of Tarzan and other releases from 2016 can be found. Like the $6.99 movies, many of these films are also available to be rented at a cheaper price. Pete’s Dragon and The BFG, for example, can both be rented for $5.99.

TV shows

On the television front, most of Amazon’s focus is on new series. Shows like The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Supernatural and Legends of Tomorrow all have discounted final prices or season pass options. That means for anywhere between $14.99 and $24.99, Amazon users will be able to watch every episode of the new season if they don’t subscribe to the CW.

There are other series available from other networks, too, including Designated Survivor, Suits, How to Get Away with Murder, The Blacklist and Madame Secretary. These series range from $20.99 to $24.99 for full season passes.


One of the bigger deals on the site right now is in its comics section. More than 300 Marvel digital comics, including Marvel NOW! collections, have been discounted. Books like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1, Agents of SHIELD Vol. 1, Ant-Man Vol 1, Captain America: Winter Solider Vol 1, and X-Men: Days of Future Past are all a part of the deal.

The price of each comic ranges, but most come in at under $5. Each has been discounted 75 percent, and based on what we saw, the sale is targeted toward volumes and collected works instead of single-issues. For example, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 is $3.01 while Frank Miller’s Daredevil is $4.41.

For those looking to pick up volumes of The Walking Dead they still need, most are being offered at a discounted price today. The discount ranges, but some volumes are available for 50 percent off.

Streaming service subscriptions

Amazon is also featuring a couple of deals on different streaming service subscriptions today. The annual pass for Plex, the service that organizes your collection of media (TV shows, movies, music, etc), is currently 50 percent off at $19.99.

Quello, a streaming service that carries global concerts and music documentaries is offering a one-month membership period for $0.99.

UFC Fight Pass, which provides full access to all Pay-Per-View fights and behind-the-scenes interviews, is 50 percent off.
