Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

They just added a bunch of Fox shows:

Archer (seasons 1-3)
How I Met Your Mother (seasons 1-8)
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (seasons 1-8)
Lie To Me (seasons 1-3)
Louie (seasons 1-3)
The Chicago Code
The Glades (seasons 1-3)
The Killing (seasons 1 & 2)
The League (season 1-4)
The Unit (seasons 1-4)

I thought the Chicago Code was a great short lived show. I'm really disappointed that Archer season 4 isn't on Prime yet. I was hoping to catch up with that, Sunny and the League.

They've been on Netflix for months but they were just added to Amazon Prime. The deal with Fox was just announced last month. The Americans is an Amazon exclusive so not on netflix.

I'm pretty sure that's just for regular Instant Video, not Prime Instant Video.

Orphan Black: Season One



DVDTalk Review - http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/60814...ck-season-one/

'Orphan Black' to stream exclusively on Amazon Instant Video

It’s no secret that the Clone Club is taking over the world, one Tatiana Maslany at a time — and this news only cements that fact. BBC Worldwide North America announced today that it has secured a deal with Amazon.com, Inc., which will allow the retailer to stream the first season (as well as future seasons) of the popular sci-fi series exclusively on Prime Instant Video.

“Prime Instant Video continues to be a great platform for viewers to enjoy our content, and we’re very pleased to make it the exclusive online streaming provider for every season of Orphan Black, starting with season one,” Matt Forde, EVP Sales & Co-Productions for BBC Worldwide North America, stated in a press release. “Temple Street Productions along with Graeme Manson and John Fawcett have created an addictive, edge-of-your-seat series and now is the perfect time for subscribers to get on board and catch up on season one before the series returns to BBC America in April.”

“Orphan Black is exactly the type of smart, suspenseful TV show that our customers love to binge on,” added Brad Beale, Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition for Amazon. “It’s easy to see why Tatiana Maslany was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in Orphan Black. We’re excited to offer the first and future seasons exclusively to Prime members at no additional cost, continuing our tradition of offering a wide variety of great content we know our customers will enjoy.”

The drama joins a growing list of series currently available exclusively on Amazon, including Downton Abbey, The Americans, Veronica Mars, Justified, Suits, Under the Dome, and more. And with more than a month to go until the second season premiere, there’s more than enough time for interested viewers to check out what all the fuss is about — or for devoted fans to binge-watch the addictive first season as much as their heart desires. (As for those lucky Prime subscribers who don’t have access to BBC America? Your day just got a little bit brighter.)

Orphan Black returns for its second season on April 19 at 9pm EST on BBC America.

It's a really good show. Short season. Only 10 episodes.

Season 2 premieres next month on BBC America, but Amazon Prime subscribers won't get to see it until sometime in 2015 most likely.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

What really sucks is that I'm trying to stay away from shows which are currently airing. By the time the next season starts I forgot what happened the previous one Got through Alias, Burn Notice, and Breaking Bad by watching straight from beginning to end. Just got the Smallville set and that'll take about 150 hours to watch so thinking of doing that next I find beginning to end binge-watching to be the most enjoyable way for me to wath TV shows.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

So now it's official:

http://bgr.com/2014/03/13/amazon-pri...e-increase-99/

Amazon Prime price will increase by 25% next week

Bad news, Amazon customers: the cost of Amazon Prime goes up next week. After batting around the idea of increasing the annual cost of its Prime subscription service by as much as $40, Amazon finally settled on a slightly lower figure. As of next week, Amazon Prime will cost $99 per year instead of $79, CNBC reported.

The company is encouraging customers to sign up for Prime within the next seven days in order to lock in their first year of service at the current $79 rate.

Amazon Prime allows subscribers to access a library of streaming TV shows and movies, and it also affords free 2-day shipping on applicable orders. For current Prime subscribers, it looks like the existing rate of $79 per year will not be grandfathered, and Prime subscriptions will jump to the new $99 rate when it comes time to renew them.

You have through April 19th (or there abouts) to renew at the lower price if you're already a member. But this really shouldn't be a surprise to anybody.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

I don't see any option to renew at a lower price than $99, which is the auto-renew price when my next bill is due.

Yeah, curious where that option is.

I'm okay with the price increase, but would definitely renew now if possible.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

I got a different message:

We are writing to provide you advance notice that the price of your Prime membership will be increasing in 2015. Your 2014 annual renewal will remain at the original price of $79. On April 16, 2015, your membership will renew at $99/year.

My renewal date is on 4/17.

Mine doesn't renew until May 10th, and they've grandfathered me in until next year.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

I think the idea is that if your auto-renew date is before April 19, 2014 some unknown date, you'll be renewed at the old rate; after that date, all autorenewals will be at the new rate. It's possible everyone already subscribed will get the old rate for their 2014 renewal.

I don't think there's an option to "renew" your subscription before your auto-renew date.

My membership renews in August and they've made it clear that it'll be at the higher price.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

OK, so this article has a pic of a notice saying that a renewal on July 1, 2014 will be at the higher price:
http://arstechnica.com/business/2014...-to-99-a-year/

This Amazon help page states that April 17, 2014 is the cutoff date for the old rate for renewals:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=200966690
If your membership renews before April 17, 2014, you'll be charged at a membership rate of $79. If your membership renews on or after April 17, 2014, you'll be charged at a membership rate of $99.
Note sure how the email TheBigDave got fits into this. Either the email was a mistake, or Amazon has extended the date and not change their help page yet.

It's possible I fell into some weird loophole.

Last year my renewal date was April 10th. A few months ago they gave me a free month due to an order screw-up. So this year my renewal date is May 10th.

But the email I got wasn't a mistake. I went into my Amazon account and it shows that I'll be charged $79 on May 10, 2014 and my price will increase to $99 on May 10, 2015.

That makes sense. They don't want to penalize you for getting a free month, so since your original renewal date was before April 17, they gave you the old rate.

It's good to know that Amazon was considering that when implementing this change.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

If you're getting renewed at the higher rate this year, I'd suggest contacting Amazon Customer Service. Ask them how you can renew now to lock in the lower rate. If enough people ask, they might implement a way to renew. But even if they don't, the CS person might add a free month of Prime to your account or give you a promo credit. They're usually pretty good about trying to keep their customers happy.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

I was offered membership through an Amazon Prime Student trial and figured I'd sign up for a year ($39) since I don't currently have Netflix or anything.

Noob question: is there a decent way to go through and see exactly what they have? There are plenty of tv shows on there for me to catch up on, but I remember when I first signed up for Netflix forever ago, I spent hours going through what was/wasn't available on dvd and streaming and compiling a ridiculous queue. Can I do that easily with Prime?
