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?
As you go through choices, click "Add to Watchlist" then look at the items in your watchlist and pick what you want to actually watch. It is not a queue, you don't have to view them in order (although the list will appear in the order you created)

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Looks like most if not all of the Travel channel programming has expired and is no longer available for free prime streaming.

Yup, it's official. All Discovery and Scripps shows dropped from Prime.

Wow, that sucks! Those shows were one of the few things I watched on Prime. Half my Watchlist is gone.

So now I'm going to pay more for Prime, and get less shows that I actually watch. Great.

I hope they go to Netflix instead of Hulu.

Amazon bought up rights to 24 and the upcoming Mini-series.

Glad they haven't dropped History channel shows yet. I noticed yesterday that volume 5 of Pawn Stars is now available, but it is only 16 episodes.

Defiance: Season One was just added to Amazon Prime. That gives viewers plenty of time to catch-up before Season Two starts in June.

Missing Six Feet Under S3, prob a mistake.

I've been wanting to check out so many of those.

In Treatment is FANTASTIC, I've seen S1 and S2, haven't finished 3.

Lots of content there if you don't own any of these series. I can understand why Game of Thrones isn't there, but why no Entourage or Curb Your Enthusiasm? Also surprised to see they are offering season 4 of East Bound and Down. That just came out on Blu-ray last week! And only three documentaries? A bit underwhelming for me.

Sadly, you won't be dancing much after you watch it.

It looks like it's exclusively through the Amazon App Store, although it works for all types of Android devices, not just Fire.

The Amazon App on the Google Play store mentions the separate Instant Video app from the Amazon App Store:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....android&hl=en

However, this page indicates that you can download the Instant Video app from within the Amazon App, perhaps without downloading the Amazon App Store app as well:

I'm doing the 30-day trial now.
What exclusive movies/shows does Prime have right now? Not necessarily Amazon-owned titles like Transparent. Just stuff that isn't on Netflix or Hulu+ at this point in time.

The biggest exclusive to me is the old HBO stuff. I've been using Amazon's streaming since they launched and it's gotten much better over the years, in terms of selection, interface, and video quality. And it runs great on their Fire TV box. I find myself using AIV much more lately vs Netflix.

Netflix is the streaming king right now, but I can easily see Amazon eventually surpassing them due to their much larger pockets. As streaming gets more popular, licensing for exclusives will only go up.

The problem is they've neglected the interface on everything but the Amazon Fire.

I thought I read that all the 2014 Sony BD players got an updated AIV interface. Not sure about the X1 or PS4.
