AMAZON IS A SCAM COMPANY!!! Amazon Prime Video has been charging me $5.99 for 14 months despite I have NOT been using their service!!!! For the past 14 months, I have always thought someone in my family subscribed to the service, but I recently realized it was actually NOT the case. I logged into Amazon's website and it shows I am NOT subscribed to any of their services. But when I contacted their customer service, they said they over-charged me without giving ANY reason. I requested for a refund for these 14 months and they promised in back and white!!

Later on when I checked for the refund, I found out only 3 months were refunded. I contacted them again and they said their system only allows for 3 months!! I disagreed but they kept asking me to liaise with the bank, or even report to local police!! Can you believe it!! I believe MOST people wouldn't bother to spend so much effort to follow up on small amount and this is exactly why Amazon is trying to rip everyone off!! They probably ripping millions of people off with minimal amount each person. This is crazy and I have everything in black and white to proof everything I mentioned above was factual! I will keep following up and lets SPREAD THIS until Amazon stop ripping people off!!

CBS ads are as tacky and intrusive as Starz and AMC. Closed-captioning is pathetic--never on the scene, pitifully proofread, and still chugging along after the show ends. You folks are losing quality of your original streaming.

    This App has a great variety of movies and TV shows. We especially like the older TV series that bring back memories of younger days. The movies are sorted into categories and it is easy to find one to suit your mood.

    I just wanted to let everyone know it is a very simple system to use. I would recommend it to anyone. Also it give you a variety of selection, you never have to watch the same show over and over. I love it. Would recommend to anyone.

    Honestly I have had no issues. We as a family truly enjoy it. Once in a long while there are quality issues but I believe it is the internet and not the program. I would greatly recommend it to anyone.

    I have had Amazon Prime for 4-5 years at least. Didn’t realize I had access to prime video until last year. Kinda still don’t understand if I pay for it or not? You know? It’s all combined into my prime account but it’s weird not paying for it.

    It's great, good selections and the price is right in my budget. If you're on a fixed income this is the way to go! I have been a customer with them for over a year now. You should try it today or very soon!

    Amazon has provided us with variety and entertainment. They also have a low cost plan for those on lower fixed income scales. I am enjoying it more than those we had at 2 and 3x the price. I have and would recommend to others.

    Good service, good selection, easy to operate and friendly service staff, very helpful and easy to understand and pick what you like. Will continue to use the Amazon service. We love the choice, the service plan is just right to fit our budget.

    It's a great service when it works. Many time it kicks you out and you have to go all the way back in and start all over to get where you were and then it doesn't resume. You have to stay all over watching from the beginning.

    Amazon Instant Video author review by Jonathan Trout

    Amazon Instant Video is a digital movie and TV show streaming service. It is separate from Amazon Prime, although Prime members have free access to a lot of video content in Instant Video’s library. You don’t have to be Prime member to rent movies and shows from Instant Video.

    • Á la carte streaming: Similar to going into a rental store and renting a movie, Instant Video lets you rent or buy movies and TV shows, one at a time, directly from your supported device. You have 30 days to watch a rented movie and 48 hours to finish it once you’ve started.

    • Selection: Amazon says they have 10,000 movies and TV shows in their library available for rent or purchase via Instant Video. Amazon Prime members can view thousands of those at no additional cost.

    • Price: There is no monthly or yearly subscription with Instant Video. Simply pay for what you watch. Prices vary depending on the title and generally range from $2 to $6 for renting. Buy movies for $10 or more.

    • Supported devices: Enjoy Amazon Instant Video on Amazon Fire TV, smart TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles like Xbox 360 and PlayStation and more.

    • Multiple devices: You can stream Instant Video from up to two devices at once.
