Re: Prime

@4268 but a lot less if you only have it say 3 times during the year.

Re: Prime

I guess depends on whether you see the video service as a supplement to the delivery service or vice versa .

Re: Prime

So how do you actually get the £7.99 offer? I can't see any option for it anywhere, and from what I've read it seems to be only available to existing Prime members who go to cancel, presumably as an incentive to keep them locked in longer. If that's the case it's a bit of a faff having to keep signing up for an annual Prime, cancelling the Prime and then hoping you're offered the monthly option each time.

Re: Prime

@DarylM Wait, you can pay for prime instant video monthly? I know you can pay monthly for LoveFilm but didn't know about P.I.V.

I don't use amazon like I used to and only used Prime when a friend let me piggyback on his account.

The £7.99 offer comes and goes.    It was avaliable earlier in the week, keep checking the Try Prime page and it occasionaly pops up.

@caseyb1993  Yes - although it's quite difficult to find.  They only mention the £79 annual subscription at first.  But I think if you continue to click through there is an option which says "Looking for Prime Instant Video?"

 

I currently have the £5.99 a month subscription for Prime Video only and have just used it to watch The Man In The High Castle.

 

I'll keep it until sometime in the new year after the next series of Ripper Street comes out.  After that I'll cancel and just have it in the months I want it (like I do with Netflix).

Re: Prime

The easiest way to get the £5.99 Amazon Instant Video deal is to click on Shop by Department, then Amazon Video. 

 

@DarylM  How was The Man In The High Castle?   I'm planning on watching it after I've finished Jessica Jones on Netflix.

There's a 30-day free trial if you've never had Prime before.  But I'm pretty sure that the trial is for full Prime, rather than just video.

 

It's annoying and confusing that it doesn't mention the £5.99 video option on the Prime Video homepage.

@BicBasher  I enjoyed it. The character motivations are complex enough to keep it interesting.  The main thing which stands out is the atmosphere of this alternate Axis-occupied America.  I like how it doesn't grandstand much or overplay its hand.  Instead it's presented in a relatively restrained way, with Americans saying 'Zieg Heil' to each other as casually as they'd say 'Hi'.  All the more effective and chilling.

 

The first episode is available for free (even for those who don't have a Prime account).

 

I haven't had Netflix for a while (since Orange Is The New Black, I think).  I plan to get it again for Jessica Jones and, particularly, the Bill Murray Christmas special.

Re: Prime

I became a Prime customer back in 2008 when all you were offered was a 'free' delivery service. And I was very happy with what I got for the money. So obviously I was very pleased when the video streaming service was added. And now unlimited Cloud storage.

 

It makes me wonder what useful goodies Sky could reward their customers. Subsidised or even free line rental or internet access maybe Smiley Happy
