Amazon Not So Prime

Amazon, I tried Prime with Instant Video for nearly 30 days; it was cool...until an update to AIV on my PS3 (over a week ago) left it the only thing on my PS3 that will not respond to controller input.

Update to the app to fix the problem?  Nope.  Support pages or forums that make it clear how to resolve the problem - even roll back to the previous version of AIV?  Nope.  Will I then be continuing with Prime?  Nope. :}

  1. I have to eat a small slice of humble pie: the aftermarket PS3 controller I was using proved to be affected by the update while the accompanying remote and genuine PS3 controllers were not it turned out. Weird.

    So I reunited with Prime. Now if Amazon Instant Video would just get with the program and join UltraViolet (http://uvvu.com). Prime shipping benefits are great, but I would feel a lot better about buying through AIV if it was integrated with UltraViolet.

    VUDU will be my first choice for buying online videos so long as AIV steers clear of UltraViolet.
