Amazon is spending nearly $9 billion on its buy of MGM, with the intention of bolstering the Prime Video catalog. Nevertheless, I personally suppose Prime Video’s largest subject isn’t content material however quite the consumer experience. The truth is, I stated as a lot in an opinion piece over the weekend.
I additionally needed to know what Android Authority readers thought of the Prime Video experience, leaving a ballot at the finish of the article. So did you agree with the evaluation or do you suppose Prime Video delivers a great experience? Right here’s how you voted.

In fact, this ballot isn’t essentially indicative of Prime Video subscribers at giant. However it nonetheless means that Amazon has a protracted solution to go if it desires most individuals to really take pleasure in utilizing the streaming service.
- Ben Baggley: It’s fairly dangerous for certain. It used to additionally checklist 4k content material individually. I bear in mind when The Boys first launched, the entrance web page highlighted it for me and I spent just a few episodes watching in 1080p earlier than realising if I looked for the present, I’d be capable of watch the 4k model. Actually, I’m not a fan of the complete Amazon experience. It’s typically extremely tedious to search out what you’re searching for.
- Joshua R. Poulson: No, the largest subject is that you should purchase one thing and you can nonetheless lose entry to it they usually don’t refund it. I purchased the sequence “Rubicon” a very long time in the past. It was eliminated. And when it obtained added again in once more, my outdated buy wasn’t legitimate. In addition they briefly eliminated the documentary “Hoaxed”. They only can’t be trusted.
- Wendi martin: I actually like Amazon prime. I agree with some of the complaints however they’ve an enormous library and much more reveals I truly need to watch then netflix. netflix works properly however what good is that when 3/4 of the content material is tripe.
- pda96: Prime Video is gentle years behind Netflix in phrases of content material and consumer interface. The latter is an unmitigated mess. The consumer has to spend a protracted quantity of time looking for an appropriate film to look at. There is no such thing as a manner of getting rid of the “Proceed Watching” films completely. They maintain reappearing even after you take away them from the checklist. So annoying!! Amazon in all probability thinks that as a result of Prime Video is a freebie to Prime members, there isn’t a want to enhance the experience. Spend a tiny bit of your billions to repair this, oh Mr. Cheapskate Bezos!!
