Whilst I didn't think everything on Amazon would be free for $99, it's certainly a bunch of content I would expect to find.
I don't really see any value in prime unless you are planning on buying goods from them then you get discounted shipping, otherwise from what I've found Amazon has only a couple of shows that netflix doesn't have, aside from those (like downton abbey) netflix has basically everything amazon does and then some.
I couldn't disagree more, Prime is hands down the best $100 I spend each year. I DO use the shipping a little, but it would amount to 1/3 of what the spend I make is. Now with Prime Music included, which whilst not as complete as Spotify, the saving amounts to $12 a month just for that.
Yeah that's fair enough then. I just can't justify having Amazon Prime when I already have Netflix & Hulu Plus and I get Spotify free with my Telecom plan. I do my streaming through the Xbox One and also couldn't stand the Amazon interface, it was unintuitive and just plain unpleasant to use compared to the netflix and hulu interface. The other thing is the content that Amazon wants you to pay for vs the flat fee that netflix and hulu plus charge which gives you all the content. I will admit though I hate that Hulu Plus puts ads in and why they restrict some of their content to web only is beyond me, if I'm paying for a subscription I should get that content that free web users can get.
First world problems right here. It ain't perfect but it sure beats having to rely on SKY and beats quickflix hands down.
Yah I must admit, the Telecom free Spotify thing is awesome.
I like Sky. I do think it's moderately expensive, but if you want access to the range of content it offers, it's certainly hard to beat. Our kids love the TV Channels for them, though they don't watch a huge amount, Sport for Rugby, our whole extended family are around each saturday night to watch Super or test Rugby, food is the biggest pull for me, and
that still leaves me with about 30 channels I never have time to watch. :)
Our daughter has got right into Barney and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse through Netflix so she's covered when we ditch SKY at the end of our contract. Sport is the biggest dilemma once we ditch SKY, still not sure what I'll do there but with SKY Now (UK) app coming out in the near future on Xbox One they have 24 hour access passes for sport so when things come on that I want to watch, assuming that Unotelly will work with it then I'll just buy the access pass and get what I want through that. I wish sky would unbundle sports from the basic package but I'm pretty sure that we will see the loch ness monster riding on flying pigs before we see sky do that.
Yah I feel the same way actually, if we could get sport, then we would make do with everything else (must have foodtv). Igloo would be perfect for us, except for sport.
