A decent app with one problem
A decent app, this - pretty good at keeping on streaming films and TV even though my internet connection is painfully slow (roll on the upgraded connection, due soon!).
My only issue is that there is no option to switch off subtitles entirely. I have coped with having to switch them off every time a new episode kicks in, but trying to watch Babylon 5 free with ads, and having to switch off the subtitles after every ad break is deeply frustrating, and makes it a rather less immersive experience.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m very glad that subtitles are available - they’re utterly necessary for accessibility - but to have a control in-app to allow those of us who don’t need them to switch them off if we so desire would be a wonderful thing. And hopefully not too complex to program…
Designed to waste your time....
Not only do the pictures change but also the titles to some of the films. When you’re looking for something to watch, every time you click on a video, watch even just a few seconds, realise it’s rubbish or seen it before, exit and return to the list, the list has refreshed leaving you to start from scratch. Not just scratch, but a different starting point amongst a bunch of slightly different categories.
To make things worse most of the videos are listed in most of the categories, most of the categories include videos that don’t belong in those categories and even if you only watch a few seconds they appear in your watch list. I.e. if you want to use the watch list you have to constantly delete entries of the videos you bailed on for whatever reason. Many of the paid for videos are not in English and don’t say that in the summary. This app is extremely frustrating and clearly designed to give the impression that there’s a lot more to watch than there actually is.
The truly annoying feature is the suggestions, they are heavily influenced by everything you click on, particularly the stuff that turned out to be of no interest. And to top it off there’s a “because you watched <some film name>” category that frequently includes the film <some film name> listing.
After a good few years of continuously streaming eye-catching original dramas,series and movies that justified the high subscription, Prime is now sitting back on its laurels and stagnating. No doubt the pandemic has bolstered their membership, yet this could be an anomaly that costs them dear.
For new evolving offerings such as those from Apple+ and Now TV, are shining a light on Amazon’s somewhat tired format and reduced output, while highlighting their annoying tendencies to squeeze every penny from their clientele. Like getting you hooked on a title, only to find you have to pay further premiums to view the later series. While all the time those monthly fees just keep creeping up.
It will be very interesting to see what happens to Prime’s viewership in the coming months. As we emerge from lockdown bingeing across a broad spectrum of services, it may well be that many start to consider refining their choices. Unless the taps are turned on again and regular, quality output starts to flow more freely, I can see stagnation turning to deserting Prime for pastures new.
