Prime Video uses the term television to identify content that is episodic in nature. Television content is organized by series, seasons, and episodes as described below.
- Series: This is the television show itself (e.g., "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel") and is the top-level distinguishing characteristic. Series are composed of one or more seasons, each with one or more episodes. It's possible to group similar, but significantly different, content under a different series (e.g., "The Best of SNL"). If you have specific questions about the best way to group titles, contact your Operations Account Manager.
- Season: These are collections of individual episodes within a particular series. This is a reflection of traditional broadcast season cycles. For shows that are "non-episodic," collecting by broadcast year or production cycle (e.g., "The Daily Show") is recommended.
- Episode: This is the individual title that customers see. Episodes are sequenced with other episodes in a season.
- Series: “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”
- Season: "Season 1"
- Episode 1: "Pilot"
- Episode 2: "Ya Shivu v Bolshom Dome Na Kholme"
- Bonus 0: "Bonus: Season 1 Official Trailer"

Prime Video uses the term movie to identify content that is standalone. Movie isn't limited to titles with theatrical releases, specific runtimes, or a specific subject matter.
Examples of content that should be classified as movie include the following:
- Feature films (exceeds 80 minutes runtime)
- Short films (less than 80 minutes runtime)
- Documentaries, educational, or instructional content
- "Made for TV" or "Direct-to-Video" titles
