Amazon Prime Video is one of the most popular streaming platforms today, alongside the likes of Netflix and Disney+. The service appears to be getting into the festive season this week (beginning December 13th, 2021), as holiday releases are on the schedule, as well as some other exciting features...
The first release of this week is a TV series titled With Love, which arrives on the platform on December 17th. The show will run for five episodes, and each one will focus on a different holiday throughout one year.
The narrative will follow the Diaz family as they go through life and deal with the adversity that comes with it; audiences will see how life’s struggles affect their relationships, love lives and more.

Also releasing on December 17th, Boxing Day will be coming to Prime Video.
The title sees British author who has been living in America, Melvin (Aml Ameen), return home to the UK to introduce his new fiancée, Lisa (Aja Naomi King), to his British-Caribbean family. However, their relationship runs into complications when Lisa finds out more about the life Melvin had before he lived in America.
