Both Amazon Instant Video and iTunes are offering HD rentals of the 2014 Oscar award winning film Whiplash for just $0.99. Regularly $4.99 to rent, this is the lowest we have seen an HD rental for the film go for.

Simmons, who took home the Academy Award for best supporting actor, and follows a young, aspiring jazz drummer “in his pursuit to rise to the top of his elite east coast music conservatory.”

(Update 4/17): Now live! Ends tonight at 3:01am EST.

Amazon has exclusive streaming rights to BBC’s Orphan Black TV show. It’s available to Prime members for free, otherwise it’ll cost you about $15 per season to buy it in HD. But for 24 hours only, Amazon is serving up season one of this hit TV show to everyone for free. The promo will start at 12:01 PT this Friday April 17th and end 24 hours later as Saturday creeps in.

Orphan Black is rated 8.5 out of 10 stars at IMDB. Its premiss is as follows:

…Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman, Beth, who looks just like her. While trying to find out more about a woman who looks just like her, Sarah takes her identity, her boyfriend and her money. But instead of solving her problems, the street-smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones… but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy, racing to find answers.

Season two of Orphan Black is currently available on Amazon, while season three is scheduled to premier on Saturday April 18.

If you end up getting into Orphan Black during this free streaming session and aren’t a Prime member, then you should just sign-up for a free trial to gain access to season two. Already used your free trial? Just sign-up for a regular Prime membership. It’s $99 per year but in my opinion is absolutely worth it — you’ll get free 2-day shipping, unlimited cloud storage for all of your photos, free streaming of movies/TV shows and more.
