That’s right, its Amazon Prime UK!
Like millions of others I pay an exorbitant subscription of £79 p.a. to watch any film or television series I choose on Prime, preferring it to terrestrial TV which is nothing but repeats.
The trouble is that the vast majority of what is currently on offer is complete rubbish, geared to the US! For instance, just try finding classic war films like The Battle of Britain or The Battle of the Bulge. I can’t even hire them as Amazon don’t have either of them readily available, and yet they had A Bridge Too Far and The Longest Day! How’s that for inconsistency?
When it comes to some of my favourite films like the Alien franchise, you can’t watch them on Prime either. Why? Because Amazon only offer them for sale or hire, which defeats the whole purpose of my paying the annual subscription in the first place . I’m damned if I’m going to pay even more!
While you are at liberty to watch any amount of American Prime Time television series, suitable for the mentally challenged, along with Hollywood’s ‘D’ grade movies, when it comes to quality UK made films and television series – forget it! Why is that I wonder Amazon UK?
