Luzifer's right hand Posted August 9, 2019 Share Posted August 9, 2019 (edited) 2 hours ago, john said: Prime Video is also one of the worst functioning apps I’ve ever used. It’s insane. The layout sucks in the first place, the way you can scroll through, the way they recommend shows. Everything seems calculated to the worst user experience. And then half the time it breaks anyway. I have to reboot my TV about every second time I use it. So, living in a country without a dedicated Amazon, we have this Prime Video service, which is just the shows and no other prime services. However, we discovered this month that they’ve now added the one day delivery to the deal. Which is nice and everything but I don’t really need it, feel guilty about the impact of it and would generally prefer they just had the content only package. They’re probably going to keep adding services and raise the price though. Other than that (and Netflix), we have HBO Go, which is pretty good in Europe, it tends to hoover up all the content you can’t get elsewhere, as well as HBO shows. Does seems a bit indulgent already, with Disney+ it would definitely be too much stuff. Well competition is not always good for the costumer. You just have to look at gaming. Steam and GOG are decent software the others are all complete and utter garbage. You can not even change the game installation language in many cases. Windows store is the worst by far but it offers the best deals if you have both a PC and Xbox as the game pass ultimate is an incredible offer. I had to change my OS to English to get some games in English... In all honesty I would prefer a netflix monopoly myself. I think I would have the get Sky to get most of the HBO content here in Austria. I think fragmentation will just push people back towards piracy. Edit: I think amazon wants to push its own hardware. The app stopped working on my LG TV for two months at some point and amazon just told me to contact LG. I know people who got a firestick because of similar problems. I used it on the Xbox during that time which worked. Edited August 9, 2019 by Wolfgang I john 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
