Ratings and Reviews
Original programming can be mediocre
Good delivery system, reasonably priced, decent movie and tv show selection, but some of the original programming is mediocre ranging to so-bad-it’ll-set-your-teeth-on-edge bad, shows like Transparent or Mozart in the Jungle start off strong but quickly degenerate into the worst Showtime-like cheesy schmaltz of star pimping, tired old tropes taking the place of plots, and comic relief comprising little more than a parade of characters written solely as one walking quirk each, while others like The Man in the High Castle are just jarringly bad from the get-go, seemingly written by a committee who studied what tonal elements make up a dystopian setting and then assembled these elements while committing zero interiority to the show. Aesthetics and taste are not Jeff Bezos’ strong suits, apparently. But otherwise this is a fine service, just don’t accidentally step off into Amazon’s own focus group-driven attempts at film or television production and you’ll be fine.
Very mixed, needs improvement, but like features
Seems like for Prime membership, you should have access to more titles than are available. Often I get blurred/ pixelated video for several minutes, with great internet speed. For those reasons I often find myself using another service where I don’t have those issues. However, on iPad, I do like the ability to easily backup or move forward 10 secs at a time. Quickly click 3 times on the left side of the screen and it goes back 30 secs. 6 times, it jumps back a minute. Awesome feature. I also enjoy the commentary/trivia notes about the show during filming or background on the choices made... these include actors, continuity issues, places, etc. The notes are tied to the associated frames when you tap the screen while playing OR you can view the list of notes and click to jump to that section in the movie.
I like, but it has some QC issues
QC—Quality Control. Some programs are VHS quality, look terrible on my 47” HDTV screen. Sometimes the audio gets out of lip-sync. Not my network, I have 20+ Mb/s business class WiFi which works great on CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS streaming.
Often I can’t view a particular Prime TV episode, it says Error-Try Later.
Some shows are both Prime and not. If I select the wrong icon, it says I have to pay extra. Same exact video. The search feature is not great—often can’t find a movie I was watching that same day.
No way to search and exclude non-Prime results. This ought to be fixed.
Some shows are not Prime but don’t explain how to watch them. Once I was referred to an obscure service that didn’t offer to let me watch anything.
Frustrating when only one season of a great series is available. Then what? No explanation, no options.
Audio—mostly excellent, but on some TV shows, the dialogue is way too weak to understand, while the music, sound effects and intro are way too loud. Sometimes there’s a hum in the audio, or noise that could be filtered out using software, if they’d bother.
It feels like video streaming is an experiment, a technology that is still not ready for the general consumer market. Ten years ago Dish Network had it perfected.
