On the Playstation 3.
Yes, I saw that message today, not sure if I will sign up for Amazon Prime again but I do think it is a good service.
If they get it on iOS.... bye bye Netflix.
Problem is that Netflix still has many times more content for streaming than Amazon Prime does.
... and yet Amazon seems to be continually adding much more as Netflix seems to be watching their available selections go away.
Personally, I'm very happy to have the competition between them and happy that Amazon has added a ton of choices that I am interested in. I wish that the interface was better for selecting what I want to see, but I do see the amount of content going up and am seeing a ton of stuff that I do like get added into the selections, so I really can't complain about something that is an added benefit for me anyway
The net loss of actual streaming titles on Netflix was a few hundred.
I use both Netflix and Amazon(I recently signed back up for Prime after letting it lapse a few months ago). But I'm continually finding more content on Netflix than Amazon.
Yep, that might be true now. However, I still don't care... still kinda ticked about the DVD deal and how they screwed everyone with that.
I agree. I would miss the queue feature but would live with it for the savings.
I don't have either Netflix or Amazon Prime now, both look like great services for the price to me. The free expedited shipping makes Amazon Prime the one I will use when I catch up and need a pay service. I have more on my TiVo and Google TV to watch lists than I can watch in the next year.
I have a PS3 and already have Prime. I flipped through a lot of the online stuff, and I see a lot of good movies and shows, just not anything I really want to watch.
I'll go back to Netflix where I still have a bunch in my queue to watch.
With me they lowered my price by 5 or 6%. I was extremely pleased when they made their price changes last year. At the time I ended up paying less for the same BD rentals and streaming services.
I believe I was paying 7.99 for unlimited streaming and 1 DVD at a time.
Now, I'm paying 9.99 for unlimited streaming.
I'm not sure how that is supposed to be paying less and getting more. They certainly did not help me with their new pricing structure.
When I go to the price list on my account, a streaming only plan is $7.99. You should contact them if you are paying $9.99 for streaming only.
I know with all the disc rental plans, adding streaming to it also just adds $7.99 to the price.
With the price changes last year, the top three or four plans had either no price change or a price decrease.
Not related to Amazon Prime but I just checked Amazon for the 99 cent rental today and found nothing, instead I found the first episodes of dozens of TV series are available to own for free. I selected one first episode, Justified, and it started to download to my TiVo. I am not sure how to approach handing this deal, several series might be of interest but I don't really want to fill up the TiVos, instead just want to watch the episodes at some future date and if I like them, figure out how to watch the rest of the first season, not requiring a purchase. Can I just go to my Amazon account, buy all of the ones I want for $.00 and then watch whenever I want using a TiVoHD or PS3?
If you are already using Playon as a media server, then you can access free Amazon Instant Prime on your Tivo using a variant of pytivo.
It was the other way around. You were paying $9.99 for one dvd and streaming and now you're paying $7.99 for streaming alone.
If you "1-Click" purchase the free episodes they will become part of your video library and you can then download them when ever (note it takes awhile to have them show up in your video library). At least that is how it worked in the past I just check my video library and the free episodes I "purchased" in the past where still there and available for download.
Thanks, that is exactly how it worked and my 2 TiVos show up in my Amazon account.
Not sure if this needs its own thread, but I have a PS3 and I am also a Prime member.
I was browsing through the selections available on Prime. I can watch the entire season 1 of Mad Men in HD for 19.99 through Prime, yet I can purchase the Season 1 BluRay for 16.99.
It just doesn't make sense to me.
Wouldn't one rather buy the hard copy so you have it available to watch over and over, with extras, and lend to friends, opposed to streaming through Prime for a limited time, at a greater expense?
You would not be watching Mad Men using Amazon Prime Instant Video if it costs $19.99, that would have to be Amazon Instant Video, all Prime programs are free streaming. Yes, the prices are often cockamamie and that is just one example of thousands. The Blu-ray purchase is a deal in my opinion, the Amazon Instant Video rental is not but not everybody has a Blu-ray player and some may be willing to pay that price to rent the show, just not me and apparently not you and most everybody else.
The good news is we get to chose what we rent and what we buy.
