Netflix v Amazon
 
I am going to try one of the streaming video internet services for TV/ films. I wonder if any member is using Amazon Prime or Netflix and what they think of it. They are both about the same price per month. I would rather not have loads of US crime dramas if possible.
Thanks, Mark

We started with Amazon prime earlier this year, (yearly subscription €69,00 so about 62 Quid) that said though it was mainly for the "Grand Tour" to be honest but I'm enjoying the "Vikings" series too & Marion gets her German telly.

Added to that it gets me next day delivery on orders from amazon, I can borrow books from the kindle library instead of buying & apparently I can listen to free music aswell, so for our needs it does us fine.

Thanks Dave, I think I am veering more towards Amazon as a first choice.

the USA netflix has a lot more variety and content than the UK netflix

netflix provide a substandard service in comparison for the UK

you used to be able to trick netflix pretty easily in to allowing you a USA account but they have tightened it up now so it is a lot more difficult to do

netflix UK is O.K as long as you arent aware of how much a better service they provide to other countries

I have Amazon Prime and if you order stuff from Amazon using Prime you can also get free next day delivery. Not used Netflix so can't really compare the two.

Seconded.
I keep seeing partial videos on farcebook that are supposed to be on netflix.
Well not on Netflix UK they are not! grr.
While it may have some good stuff, it is very much populated with sub b/c rated films with bad sync, voiceovers and bad actors.

I can log onto both netflix and prime via my sky box or the pc etc.

That said, I'm almost finished watching all 5 series of "better call saul", after that I'll do breaking bad and on top "Bad Girls" season 4 has just been released so I'm watching that right now.

Amazon prime is good too although I have not watched that as much as its on the wifes account, prime 1 day delivery seem to be a myth now, many times things are way later than promised and non prime deliveries just as fast.

The free ebooks etc. the wife likes.

So we have prime, netflix and disney.... covers everyones tastes.
