Check the content carefully. It's a while since I looked but my recollection is that I thought it surprisingly limited. Plenty of shoot 'em ups, horror, martial arts movies, movies about sports and that sort of thing, none of which interests us.

Can't remember the contract terms but I figured that we might fairly soon run out of stuff we wanted to watch and end up paying each month for something we didn't use.

We have Prime Video because we shop quite a lot on Amazon and pay for Prime to save us money on deliveries. Prime Video has a few things worth watching which you can do at no extra cost but popular and recent stuff has to be bough or "rented" at additional cost. Again what's included is rather limited. But there is a free trial period there too.

Neither of us likes shopping, and anyway anything that's in any way unusual can be very hard to find in shops. So, while being careful to do price checks, we end up shopping a lot on Amazon and find Prime saves us a lot on delivery charges. Prime Video is a bit of a bonus but we wouldn't pay for Prime just for that.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I already have Prime Alan thanks.
Netflix I have been watching here with Heike and at the weekend I watched 2 good films. Like you I donīt go for the "shoot 'em ups, horror, martial arts movies, movies about sports"
I watched Kon-Tiki about the Thor Heyerdahl a Norwegian explorer, who I had never heard of, but many may have. I forget the name of the other one, but it was my type of film about bad luck turning out well in the end. Maybe there are different films for Germany and the UK or wherever your Prime comes from. I have also watched Peaky Blinders on there

I have Amazon Prime but so far have not used it, various offspring have Netflix etc. and are happy if I want to use their details, but there are more than enough programmes on free to air TV that I can sleep through that I don't need others....

I watched MOST of Dracula no catch-up here with son in law, but managed to catch a few zzz's for the last 15 minutes of each episode and I still cannot really understand it, but that may be because I missed the important bits ! But I doubt that it will come back and bite me (pun intended but typical former teacher humour -sorry!). 😴

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I use both Prime and Netflix, the latest one I watched was Bosch on Prime, old school American murder detective serving in a PC political world.

Terry

Ken Burn's The Civil War was a brilliant and very informative documentary on Netflix.

You obviously have too much time on your hands, take up knitting, embroidering or something.

I generally only watch stuff late at night or on long trips away in the van on an evening but I can do a whole box set in a week or two. I prefer binge watching rather than waiting each week for a new episode to come out or a year for the next season when you forget what happened in the previous one. Ive just not got into anything for ages now.
