Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

I have a question about No-Rush credits. Do they work on every amazon video, or only the ones where the price shows up crossed out and reduced?

Any digital video purchase. Once it is on your account you will just see the price reduced. You may not even know you are using it.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Can you stack the no rush credits, or use only 1 at a time?

Does Amazon Prime do that whole "watch party" thing? I can't tell.

Prime has an official "watch party" feature in Twitch, but it's only for "select" content creators in the US.
https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/wat...language=en_US

This article recommends the Chrome/Firefox plugin TwoSeven, which works with Netflix, Amazon, HBO, YouTube, Vimeo, and for a price, Hulu & Disney+,
https://www.techhive.com/article/353...h-parties.html

Prime video may not be working on that plugin at the moment though, according to the FAQ
https://twoseven.xyz/help/faq

This site lists some alternatives, although I personally haven't used any:

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Am I the only one having trouble with amazon streaming? Tried to watch the latest season of Bosch episode 6 right now and UHD won't start. I get the "Something went Wrong " message. Same thing happened with episode 1. Episode 2-5 (UHD) played fine last night. Just tried episode 6 in HD and it starts fine. Weird.

Is this on a Roku? I couldn’t get Hulu running on my Roku tv either.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

When I watch Amazon Prime on one of my Roku TVs all the tv shows and movie icons are missing and all nothing but blank boxes but it does describe the box name.

Have you tried doing a system restart?

How would you do that with a TCL Roku TV?

I usually just unplug it and wait 10 minutes before plugging it back in. Seems to work for Chromecast too when it's acting up.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

A system restart on my Roku seems to fix those types of problems as well. I think the memory gets filled up, so a restart/reboot seems to clear it out.

Castle S1-7 has been added to Prime Video Canada. It's missing the last season though.

Saw a post on Reddit, looks like the majority of HBO shows have been pulled from Prime. Assuming because of HBO Max. I spot checked a few of the big ones and they are gone. I'm not sure what's left, if anything.

Not sure why anyone would get HBO Go when they can get HBO Max for the same price, but yeah all that HBO content will still be there as well.
