First you're responding to a 4 month old post, second the statement was in reference to the Amazon Instant Video channel on Roku, not Netflix. Last I looked the Roku AIV player still couldn't tell you which resolution it was receiving.

I have a question, (and I went back a few pages to see if anyone else had asked the same question). Is there a way to change the resolution in Amazon Prime? I ask, because Comcast limits bandwidth here, and Amazon Prime seems to eat up a LOT more bandwidth than anywhere else I stream. In Netflix I can choose. Is there an option like that in AP? I looked, I searched, I googled, I couldn't find an answer. I really like AP, because they have a lot of content that I can't find elsewhere on Roku unless I pay for it, so the yearly price would be worth it to me. Thanks.

Does Amazon Prime have audio issues on all devices? On my Samsung Smart tv the volume has be almost maxed out to achieve acceptable levels. I read this is a common problem.

With an Amazon Fire TV box, connected by HDMI to my Yamaha AVR, I have no audio problems at all - the volume level is pretty much the same as from my blu-ray player, and comes through as 7.1 Dolby Digital Plus.

I assume that the same would be true with the stick version, but I prefer wired ethernet whenever possible - and my cablemodem is alongside the cabinet that my AVR is on top of.

Samsung Smart TV's not only have problems with Amazon but also with Netflix and Youtube. Stories abound on the internet...

Well good to know its a Samsung tv problem because I just got 6 months of Prime for free using my student email. I also have a Samsung blu ray player and a Chromecast hopefully one of those is better.

Although I have long done quite a it of business with Amazon, I put off subscribing to Amazon Prime until recently. What can I say? I'm a cheapskate.

I have been exploring Amazon Prime Streaming for several days using the Amazon app built in to my TiVo Premiere Elite and am very impressed so far. There are far more feature films that appeal to me on Amazon than there are on Netflix, or so it seems to me. The big revelation, though, has been the incredible PQ of most of the films I have watched so far. Don't get me wrong, PQ is ordinarily just fine on Netflix too but so far at least seems to be quite a bit better on Amazon. I'll get a lot out of free two day shipping and no minimum order too, so my hundred bucks for 13 months seems to have been well spent.

Welcome to the fold gwsat, I'm a big fan also. I use the Amazon Fire TV device for access which features voice search. Quite handy.

Note that Amazon Instant Video 1080p comes at a premium, being 10 Mbps (aka 4.5 GB/hour). The bit rate of Netflix 1080p with surround sound is 5992 Mbps (2.7 GB/hour). Worth consideration if your ISP has a tight, rigidly enforced bandwidth cap.

Interesting, considering that Netflix uses Amazon's servers! They have different priorities, apparently.

I had to relocate my cable modem to my theater in order to have a fast enough connection for 1080p from Amazon (my Fire TV box wants over 50 mbps before it says "1080p") - but even their 720p ("HD") looks very nice - and I'm projecting my image 9'6" x 5'4" (130.8" diagonal) with a 1080p Panasonic PT-AE2000U.

I had a Prime account purely for shipping for many years, but when I learned that their free streaming included all Star Trek tv shows and movies (alas, now only a few Trek films are free, though all the live-action tv shows still are), I equipped my theater for their service. I bought Blu-rays of all the films long ago, anyway.

I don't run into bandwidth caps from Comcast since (a) I don't watch movies or tv more than once or twice a week (it took me seven years to put 3000 hours on my projector's bulb) and (b) most of my viewing is disks.

I was a TiVo pioneer. I bought my first one in 2000 and still use TiVos exclusively. Thus, the presence of the Amazon client on my TiVo was a big factor in my decision to spring for Amazon Prime. Until and unless Cox decides to start throttling my download capability I assume that the PQ of what I have been watching will continue to be jewel like. It has been by far the best I have seen this side of reference quality BDs.

Indeed. (It's a shame that I've never learned how to raise one eyebrow.)

A month or two ago I finally got a new AVR that enabled me to use an HDMI audio connection, to get 7.1 Dolby Digital Plus from Amazon instead of the standard Dolby Digital over optical I'd used for years.

As an experiment, I ran Star Trek: Into Darkness from Blu-ray and from Amazon Prime in synch, so I could flip back and forth. I actually had a hard time telling them apart.

That's a good question. When the service came to Apple back in April it was supposed to be 3 months exclusivity until it farmed out to other devices.

That time has come and gone.

HBO Now is available on Amazon's app store, has been for about a month now. The $15/month is charged through Amazon appstore subcriptions. It works on my Fire HDX Tablet, and I mirror that to the Fire TV.

Also waiting for FireTV compatibility (and hopefully DD/DD+ support)

"Star Trek - The Animated Series" now on Prime

When I said, a few posts back, that all "live action" Star Trek tv shows stream free on Prime, I inserted that qualifier because free Prime streaming originally didn't include the animated episodes of the original series - written by the original writers and voiced by the original cast except for Walter Koenig (who did, however, write one of the episodes) - so Checkov is replaced by an alien navigator. They aired in the early 1970s while Trek was "in the diaspora" after the cancellation of the original series.

I don't know when it changed, but all 22 animated episodes are now available for free Prime streaming.

These stories are considered "canonical" along with the live action stories (unlike the paperback novels, which are not "canon"), so they're worth watching. They're 24 minutes apiece. They may have aired during the kids' cartoon block, but they were as serious as the live action stories.

It will be interesting see if enough people respond to 'Sneaky Pete' I saw before it came to Amazon. I had heard of 'Mad Dogs' but wasn't able to get my hands on a copy before it landed at Amazon.

Previously, my cablemodem had been in my second-floor apartment, connected to my basement theater over MOCA - similar in concept to powerline networking (over household AC wiring, subject to noise from motors etc.) but over existing cable TV coax (a much quieter medium). MOCA capability is built into Verizon FOIS boxes, so I had picked up a pair used for about $60. Using a just-over-1 GHz carrier, I was getting a link that got me 1080p from VUDU but only 720p from Amazon, though I could get 1080p from Amazon at the cable modem.

Running ethernet cable to the basement would have been a real chore, so I simply moved the cablemodem to the other end of the MOCA link. Upstairs PC's connection speed is not perceptibly affected. Problem solved.

You could've used powerline ethernet. My modem's upstairs, the main TV's downstairs. I never had an issue with Amazon 1080p content. (or 1080 from other providers like VUDU or Netflix) Even the 200Mbps adapters worked- and I use 500 Mbps now.

Amazon 1080p is only 9-10 Mbps. Why you couldn't sustain even that on MOCA is most likely your coax wiring more than anything else.

Are you using an Amazon Fire TV box? I'm on my second - which behaves exactly the same as my first - they refuse to switch to 1080p unless they're getting over 50 Mbps. I've heard that the apps built into other devices may be more relaxed about Amazon's speed requirement, but for my Fire TV box the 30 Mbps I get over my MOCA link (just closed all my web browsers and re-tested from both speedtest.net and testmy.net) just doesn't cut it. What actual tested speed do you get from your powerline connection?

By the way, there are three apartments in the house - all billed separately, as well as my theater, so I'm not sure powerline would make a connection.

My wife signed up for an Amazon Prime trial. Watched a couple of trailers and then Enemy tonight. Just my two cents, I wasn't all that impressed with the PQ. Lots of color banding and the amount of detail wasn't anything to write home about. Have also been watching Sense 8 on Netflix, which looks absolutely stunning. Very detailed, and a lot of pop. However, in terms of DD audio quality, I put Amazon on top.

On my Sony, using something like Hannibal vs Sense8, I see the PQ looking good on both. I do tip my hat to 1080p Netflix. I still see banding on Netflix 1080p when I run it on the 65", but I am not gonna complain.

Most of the time, I view Amazon Prime using the Amazon Fire Stick. The viewing experience is definitely improved.

Unfortunately, color banding is a digital anomaly that is quite common, even on source material like BD that offers plenty of bandwidth. However, it becomes more apparent with higher data compression. Although it's very slight, I've even seen it on test patterns displayed on my TV due to it's gray scale limitations, an issue that exists with most plasma's.

I have a plasma too, agree. And I do see more banding with Amazon.
