Amazon Video aka Prime Video (see also Amazon Studios)
(launched as Amazon Unbox in 2006; renamed Amazon Video on Demand in 2008; rebranded as Amazon Instant Video in 2011; renamed Amazon Video in 2015; renamed Prime Video in 2018 I think)

The company was founded in 1994, and soon became a major online bookstore, as well as selling increasingly more kinds of things. Amazon Unbox started in 2006 as a place to rent or buy video online. Amazon Studios started in 2010, as a competitor to Netflix and Hulu, though they had begun co-producing films in 2008. (The first Amazon Original film was in 2015.) They began producing original TV series (or more accurately, webseries) in 2013. I was aware of Amazon making original shows at that time, though I didn't really get a chance to watch anything regularly until fall of 2017. I should also say that some shows which are labeled on the site as Prime Originals, are actually acquisitions. Anyway, I'll list any webseries I've watched on Amazon that the site calls Prime Originals, I guess. (As long as Amazon is the original distributor in America.)
