Personally, I view Amazon Prime Video as a poorly executed project within the Bezos ecosystem. Their Prime shopping experience has raised the bar by which everyone else operates (even put some brick & mortar stores out of business), but it is totally opposite for the Prime Video part.
Using Netflix as the benchmark, on average, the A-Video original programming is "ok to good" at best, even their GUI/UX is inferior to other platforms (e.g. I find navigating the Hulu app a better experience), they take too long to bring in new shows or movies (Netflix adds something new like every week it seems). Sure, some of their original programming is excellent (e.g. The Man in the High Castle), but that is far in between.
Case in point, for years now, in our family, the go to streaming platform has always been Netflix: kids and adults alike. I hate to say it, but if it wasn't for the fact that A-video is included with my general Prime membership, I wouldn't pay anything extra for it. Totally subjective here, but I think many of you would agree that there is something about A-prime video that isn't completely gelling - seems like a half executed project, always something missing (or not working), and resulting in an overall inferior video streaming experience...even outside the ATV platform.
Looking at Neftlix: I can't find many things that I can fault at this exact moment.
P.S. I will try to submit this feedback to Amazon itself...hoping that appropriate steps may be taken. Does anyone have an Amazon email address that this sort of feedback should go to?
