I used it during my 30 day free trial and it showed to me that Amazon Prime is a complete rip-off.

Seriously: if you don't cancel your 30 day trial, they say they'll charge you for A WHOLE YEAR. Not monthly, but A YEAR.

And there's hardly any TV shows and films on there. In fact, I only found one TV show worth watching.

Then there's the fact the Instant Video app frequently experiences a problem and if your Wi-Fi isn't strong enough, the video quality resorts to basically a telesnap reconstruction.

Terrible service certainly not worth 79 a year.

My OH has it and there's 3 of us as his guests that can use the service.


Between the 3 of us we definitely utilise the Prime Delivery, especially as we're not all at the same address.


I use the Prime Instant to stream, but I also have Netflix and use Prime BD rental service. Netflix IMHO is a superior streaming service for PQ and choice, especially when you use a VPN


Prime Instant feels like there's less choice of free movies to watch and an increasing amount of PPV.

Amazon Prime app on iOS now allows you to download movies and tv shows for offline viewing. Not necessarily revolutionary but a nice added feature. I travel a lot and don't always have a wifi connection.

It is limited to SD only downloads from what I can tell, but along with the recent update to allow HD STREAMING on iOS it has just given me the ability to get rid of our home broadband completely. Shame I'm under contract with my broadband provider until March next year.

I gave Netflix a chance and was grateful for the original series like Scream and Daredevil but the selection on the UK Netflix is just so slim, so I found myself going back to Prime again which just seems to have everything. I don't even know how Netflix is still going considering Prime seems to have hold of so many of the big shows right now and so many of the big classics too.

I hold a different view. I think Netflix is in a different league to be honest.

Did you try Netflix USA, or other regions? You can use Smart dnsIP or VPN to change region and view Netflix content from different regions.

For example...

Why spend extra when I already have it so good with Prime?

Well, apart from superior picture quality, they have a better selection of modern movies IMO. Better originals and a better choice of tv in general. The prime movies are nowhere near as recent.

I don't really look for recent stuff, I look for cult stuff I can't get on region B BDs and Prime normally wins. Netflix has got some great originals though, especially Scream, I loved that. In terms of quality I can't say one way or another, my internet is not good enough at the moment to put either through their paces.

Well, I just wanted to share how great Amazon Prime Video is compared to Netflix. It seems (to me anyway) that they carry better movie selections than Netflix does. Lots of great independent movies carried on Prime Video as well as other Hollywood movies Netflix can't seem to have the rights to.

You can get $20 off a Prime membership today. It says its for new members, but the discount was automatically applied for me despite me not being a new member.

I had just cancelled my membership when it expired in September.

And it looks like Season 2 just came out.

Is anyone using a Roku to watch Amazon video? I'm having problems with the new version for some reason. Anyone else?

I'm using last year's Roku 4. Amazon works okay on mine after the new update. I like the facelift Amazon's app received. It still works about the same. It just mostly looks different. I'll report back if anything changes.
