A new video produced by Disney claims that Abraham Lincoln never cared about freeing slaves but deporting them. It is called a fake by Lincoln biographer David Kent. Disney is losing audiences in droves and losses at the box office.
The end of Disney is near. Everything that the conservatives build for healthy growth and the protection of innocence in the infant, the communist Marxists enter and destroy it.

Not to me. It's a useful alternative when something else falls thru and I would like that information now. It's not the primary source but when a DVD fails, other things like youtube are insisting that I must sign in, Amazon Prime tends to come through immediately.

I have primarily for postage but this second use is nice.

Finally, some might say, "AH-HA! Tamara, you are finally streaming!"....but I am not. I still don't have the Internet quota to make streaming operationally possible. Sure, here or there, maybe, but not all the time. So I don't do it, I don't depend on it, I don't need it......as it said that it is more economical from other services. How can something be economical for me when I don't use it in the first place or at least, don't use it for that in the first place.

I have a Netflix DVD subscription that ships DVDs slow, and I wanted to see if I could watch some of those movies on Amazon Prime video. Speed up the process.

I have 350 movies listed in my Netflix DVD queue. I checked all 350 on Amazon Prime video.

32 movies in my Netflix queue are available for free with no adds with Amazon Prime video. Less than 10% of my list.

28 movies are available with adds. Well, that is bull**** and still less than 10%.

Another 10% were free with some paid channel subscription. No thanks.

Another 15% of the DVDs on my Netflix list were "currently unavailable" on Amazon Prime video.

A full 55% of all of the movies on my Netflix list are only available for paid rental fee of $1.99 to $9.99. Most being $2.99 to $4.99. So average $4 for all the rentals I would watch.

10 movies, $40. 100 movies, $400. Rip off in this day and age.

So far I am finding the $9 Amazon Prime video to be a bad value. Live Patrol on Reelz will make it better, but this is still a bad value. I get it that is only $9/mo and what is that these days, but renting movies nightly at $4 to $5 a pop gets expensive quickly. Heaven forbid you rent 2 back to back.

And don't think for a minute the DVD titles on my Netflix queue are all blockbuster, top billing, super great 4-star films either. A lot of these movies are crap that I can't stand to finish and send them back half watched.

We will see how much I have to pay for Reelz and then how much they charge me to subscribe to Live Patrol. It will probably double my cost.

I have a feeling I may be canceling soon.

Meanwhile, the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is really well done. I am enjoying that on Amazon Prime video. The only saving grace in the meantime.
My entire collection is now in Amazon Prime, but then again I buy all my movies, and I only watch classics.

people constantly donate the current ones.
for example: Dune, Don't Look Up, etc.

we are allowed to check out 6 at a time.
that is a week's worth for us.

The TV is not my family's primary reason for having Amazon Prime.

However I am finding enough to watch on Amazon and they change the listings often enough. They have a few Korean films, which I like and they offer a few European films which I like. I also access Freevee through Prime and they offer a lot of good things to watch as long as you can stomach the volume of the advertising. Freevee specializes in older films and TV which, in my opinion was much better than whatever is being made today.

The big problem is that many of the content producers have decided to do their own streaming and that leaves not much for anyone else. I like British TV, but the BBC woke up to the fact that they can stream their own shows and they don't share much of anything with anyone else. Want British shows? Then you must pay for BrittBox. I used to watch Korean mini dramas on one of the free services, and suddenly, all in the same day, they were all gone, and available on a Korean streaming service.

As for just plain old regular TV, we watch as much on the network channels as we watch on the cable channels. Those are free with a good antenna'

I watched several episodes of “The boys”

I really want to like it and Amazon prime, but I can’t.

HBO Max is far superior. IMO.

Amazon Prime is amazing when you're not subscribed to anything. I just buy seasons of my favorite shows and can watch them over and over again. It's fabulous.

Honestly, Amazon itself is nearly worthless. I don't like that company and have had more than a few issues w/ them. Besides, all they do is resell other people's stuff! I mean, its not that big a deal to google something and buy from the original source. They have a crappy reputation as far as the way they treat their employees too. OSHA has fined them numerous times for poor workplace safety.
