Dude, thank you! Never heard of this show and looked it up based on your comment.

I blazed through season 1 in a couple days. It's like this show was tailor made for me. I'm sure I'll knock out season 2 this weekend.

A whole lots of Dark Shadows got added to Amazon Prime, recently (seventeen of the twenty-six sets, as well as a couple of the "Beginning" sets).

Amazon shifting their programming focus to develop bigger event type shows.

One of the main reasons why they just cancelled the Christina Ricci series Z: The Beginning of Everything. They decided to pull the plug even after spending $7M on pre-production.
Definitely feel like they need to reevaluate their original content. I swear all their Drama's seem like they were Greenlit by some Algorhythm created to try and win Emmy's, and they have flopped hard outside of Transparent because no one put glowing reviews or actual viewership into their algorhythm.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Man, Amazon Prime has some REALLY crappy B and C grade flicks that can be fun, depending on your level of altered state.... "Space Boobs in Space", "A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell", and "Vegas in Space" are all super horrifyingly bad, if you like watching that kind of dreck. I've also watched pretty much every sharknado type movie they have. I think "3 Headed Shark" was probably the worst.

Does AP sometimes take up to a minute to reach HD for any of you? It does for me and I have pretty good connection, running close to 80 Mbps download...

Netflix is more finicky for me than Amazon Prime, yet I do notice some degradation of quality at startup on both. We have 100mb service that usually runs over 90+ generally. I often wonder if is our Roku 3 (2016) that is the bottleneck.

On HD, no...occasionally 4k streaming has issues but that's more because of where my router is and my router extender (my 4k television is upstairs) doesn't always see it well enough. Someday I'll be rearrange my downstairs setup to be more efficient like my upstairs one. (But it's difficult with a toddler running around and the wifey wanting to watch Dance Moms or another reality show.)

Red Oaks season 3 is up now. They released it early if anyone wants to start streaming it.

Thanks for the reminder. I keep a PS3 in the living room solely because Amazon wasn't on the Apple TV. It will be good to get rid of it.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Lately I've stumbled onto a few new releases that were available to rent (in HD) for a bargain price, "The Villainess" for 1.99, "Better Watch Out" for 99 cents, and tonight "Baywatch" for 99 cents. Now I found these by just fishing around and I don't know any details. Is there a quick and easy way to find out which rental titles are being offered at bargain prices on Amazon?

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

I found a way to search based on price. If you set the price to $0.99, it'll show the cheap rentals, because the rental price is the lowest.

This link may work:

Or, for $1.99 rentals as well:

Some recent films that come up.

I just wanted to say the Prime streaming app on Apple Tv runs a hundred times better than the PS3 one did. I'm glad that they finally got it on there.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

According to CordcutterNews.com ,CBS All-Access is now available on Amazon Prime. The limited commercial version will be available at a later time.

As long as everything is available there compared to the CBS All-Access app-I might switch but then I would probably drop Shutter and Scream Box.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Another reason I might switch is because I watch it mostly on an older Roku device that is very slow when it deals with the CBS All Access app. Takes a few minutes and it's very clumsy navigating the screen's.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

This is the same price as directly with CBS All Access yet a smaller trial time (3 days vs CBS's 7 days - and at times they've offered 30)

Other than app speed, etc what is the advantage of doing this through Amazon?

Plus the other one's like Showtime and HBO,is they any real advantage from getting them from Amazon Prime?

Aren't you only allowed one stream with Hulu so does that mean you can't watch HBO on another stream if you are already watching Hulu.

I know that I dropped Full Moon because they only allowed one stream while Amazon offered more streams.
