You know what right ***** me off regarding Prime? Don't get me wrong the deliverys and purchases under £10 are great but....

It's the Amazon Instant Video......So I pay £79 a year for Amazon Prime.....you would honestly think that included all the movies/tv shows on Instant Video.......nope!

Absolute rip off.

edit - sweary word

Already sorted for media players, but if someone wants one at the discounted price I'm happy to pass it on if they cover postage

You can add up to 3 (I believe) "family/household" accounts onto your prime membership which they share. Although they don't have to be at the same address so it's a nice way to split the cost of prime (it was great back when prime was much less). The only thing "family" members don't get is the instant video and book lending.

Agree with Buzz, the content for Instant is absolutely shocking.

Course it can. It's an Android device after all. Put XBMC on it and play most media.

anyone else gone for the game controller? bit pricey I thought.

No need for this have netflix nowtv skytv cant watch all of these....

It's Amazon doing things like this that reduces their profits, there by reducing tax liabilities.
For those who don't understand, they make many loss leading items and services to get market share. This profit loss means less profits to pay tax on. That is not tax dodging or not paying their fair way.

Thought I would pre-empt the tax dodger planks before they weasel out the woodwork.

What content has this got that a Chromecast hasn't got?

If I have an Apple TV and a Now TV box would this replace them? What are the benefits over Apple and Now boxes please? Sorry not very techie?

So this is like a glorified now tv box?

Shame it requires XBMC to play files from an external HD. Can't be bothered to mess around installing it.

Chromecast is just a caster. The media comes from elsewhere. This is a media player/android tv device.

Is there any way that this will allow me to watch my Flixster movies?
Odd question... I know...

If downloading an .apk file and installing is messing around, shocking you managed to register an account here. Or anywhere for that matter.

As below. It depends what you use those devices for.

Depends what you use the now tv box for. This is just an android tv box. So anything you can do with your phone/tablet, you could probably do it with this but on your TV.

So you can install any app/game from the amazon app store?

I'm currently on the free trial of Prime but it's still coming up as £79 in my basket?

Also what advantage does this have over Chromecast? Can I cast a YouTube video to the television using this like I can with Chromecast?
