Why can't we opt out of this service so as to not have pay for something we don't want need or will ever use or is this is just Amazon screwing over their customers again

I for one am extremely NOT likely to renew my Prime membership when the time arrives. I, like many, don't need streaming video and 79 for next day delivery [which isnt always next day!], doesn't look like a great deal to me. Hopefully amazon will make this optional otherwise they may well lose more prime customers than they expect.

Why would people wanting to buy lots of books be thought to automatically want what seems to be endless American TV. Isn't that what book-readers are trying to get away from?

you can opt out , either go into prime account and stop auto renew or try amazon help and chat to an advisor who completely removed it for me

removed what exactly ?
do you means your Prime membership is now cancelled ?
that is easy (I just did it) but your rather vague post suggests you might have achieved something else
please explain in more detail

prime instant video , which would have cost 5.99 a month from march

thank you for the clarification
I had understood so far that the streaming video service was only to be part of the "upgraded" Prime scheme to cost 79 from one's renewal (mine would renew in May, not March)
your experience seems to suggest that video streaming is available separately @ 5.99 per month but that amounts to 72 pounds a year so one might as well have Prime
perhaps the 5.99 pcm was Amazon's old video service (was it called Love Film, maybe) ?

Wait. So I have lovefilm on my xbox. I Pay 5.99 a month for this and now here I get it free because I am with prime? So can I cancle my 'lovefilm' account but still get everything instead of paying both for the service?..

hi emma
you need to check carefully that you get the same range of content BUT it looks to me that if you sign up for Prime (or already have a Prime account) at 79 a year you may not need to pay 5.99 a month as well, PLUS with Prime you get a lot of free next day delivery effectively for only another 7.88 a year (79 pounds minus 12 times 5.99)
looks too good to be true ?
maybe it is
check it out

Does anyone know how many devices you can stream on at one time?

Have you seen how many devices can be used for Prime Streaming the US compared to the paltry dozen or so int he UK????? Why do we have to be the poor cousin in the UK??? Unless i buy a new device I will be unable to watch Prime Streaming in the UK. Why should I pay for that?

Rosiebear,I was interested in your question so I have just tested out my PC,smart tv and Kindle fire, I was watching a different film on each one at the same time !

The joys of Amazon Prime Instant Video! I have a Sony smart TV and a Sony smart bluray player, both are registered with sony and Prime, however I can only use one at a time for prime. I have to disable the other one on Sony, then go through the rigmarole of re-enabling it later. I queried this with Amazon and have just received this response

"I have an update from our technical team and they ask that as you have two Sony devices registered for Prime Instant Video that you will need to register each device to a separate Sony account in order to use both devices for Prime Instant Video.

Alternatively you can de-register one of the devices from your Prime Instant Video Account "

So now Amazon want me to have 2 Sony accounts - crazy!
