​Thats right! Although, I bought a fire stick recently and now my Chromecast is obsolete!
Cheers OP. News to me.
I still think chromecast is better than fire stick, and also i have made so many accounts on amazon prime it is unreal, they really do not care about making multiple accounts under the same name and getting a free prime trial every single time.
Very, very nice!
Interesting! Just got Prime so will take advantage!
2164 films and tv episodes to download so far. Not a bad start at all.
Amazon Prime is getting pretty darn good! Great with a student account (even if you have a family member who is a student get them to sign up and you can use it too) at only £39 per year. I also agree with CamronSwift regarding the chromecast being better

​is there any easy way to make multiple accounts?
Getting really boring looking for something on Netflix. Time for a wee change I think.
I have prime trial at the momenT. sTILL dont think it's worth the 99£
How does this work if you're no longer a member, to protect against piracy...
Not free. Just an added feature for a service you need to pay for.

Netflix has a few hidden gems, two aussie programs I found recently and can highly recommend: "Rake" and "Dreamland" (original Oz title is Utopia)

Rake is a little like House crossed with Silk, Dreamland's the series that BBC based Twenty Twelve on.

You'd have to check with your local Masonic Lodge, also I suppose the joining fee depends on your craft or guild. I doubt it will include a movie/TV streaming service though, so I'd go with Amazon.
Awesome another reason to buy Prime cheers OP.

​its worth it if you use the prime delivery service alot. I weigh up the cost of stuff before I buy but end up with next day delivery even on a sunday. plus if you share the account with someone then you share the price. easy really

Like Silk and Twenty Twelve sounds good thanks
Just trying it out - it seems you can only download a select number of titles. Majority of what I have tried so far I can stream but cannot download. Halt And Catch Fire I can download - not sure what else so far.

Edit - sorry I will retract that statement. There is a lot you can download especially movies. But also a fair amount that you can stream but can't download - e.g. TV Shows Suits, Battlestar Galactica. Movies - Lincoln

Note: this is not all Amazon Prime content. You can only download certain content. It's all about the licencing agreements that are in place.
So can you down load then they are still available after the prime trial ends or only when the account is active?

Thngs must be slow in the Ivory Tower of UKHD as this isn't free really is it, it's just an option for a paid service and a limited one as well which of course isn't mentioned for obvious reasons. Anyway here are the full facts:

Download Prime Instant Video TitlesSelected Prime Instant Video titles … Download Prime Instant Video TitlesSelected Prime Instant Video titles are available for download to compatible Fire tablets and mobile devices.If you're an eligible Prime member, you can download selected Prime movies and TV shows to a compatible device in addition to streaming them instantly.Compatible Devices: Fire tablets Fire phone Android phones and tablets iOS devicesIf you're using a compatible device, a Download option displays in the video details for Prime titles you can download.Note: Download availability depends on our agreements with content owners. We're constantly working to establish and enhance these agreements so we can offer a download option for as many Prime titles as possible.To download Prime Instant Video titles: Make sure your device is connected to a Wi-Fi or wireless network. You need an active Internet connection to complete video downloads. Find the Prime title you want to download and open the video details. Tap the Download option. Tip: For TV shows, select the episode you want to download and then look for the Download ("down arrow") icon. Once the download is complete, a "Downloaded" or "check mark" icon displays in the video details.The time period you have to view a downloaded video while your device is offline varies by title. A notification typically displays onscreen when the viewing period for a title is almost over. Onscreen notifications also display if you've downloaded the maximum amount of Prime titles (across all the devices on your account) and need to delete one or more to proceed with the current download.

The other problem is the amount of time you are allowed to keep them offline. I downloaded 3 episodes of Rogue last night and they expired after 7 hours. Apparently, the amount of time that titles are available offline varies by account holder.
It's a shame their Android app is pretty sheit.

I want to like Prime but everytime I've searched for stuff, 9/10 results are stuff you have to pay extra for. Like yesterday my kid wanted to watch a Thomas the Tank movie so I searched and found only 1 "on Prime" but it listed about 6 others I could buy for about £8 each, which he saw on the screen and wanted to watch once he saw them, such a scam imho. You should be able to turn off the non-prime stuff.
Is there a way to download to your PC does anyone know please?
