I think it was in the link you posted:

Also added in the US is the ability to pay for Prime Video separately, if you don't want the other benefits of Amazon Prime. For $8.99 a month, US subscribers get access to unlimited movies and TV shows on the service, including Ultra HD video with HDR.

The UK has always offered a separate Prime Video subscription option, at £5.99 a month.
The video only part of UK Prime stemmed from the streaming only option of Lovefilm. The US Amazon never had a Lovefilm equivalent.

Perhaps you need a pair of glasses as when we get older our sight usually worsens.

Tell me about it.

I recently "failed" an eye test, my first time I was told I needed them but it was a long time coming. I now have a set of glasses with a -0.75 Dioptre.

Anyway, I recently upgraded to a 4K TV and tested the set with Breaking Bad on Netflix. Without my glasses on I couldn't really see a difference between HD and 4K. With them on? Oh. OH.

Maybe you've just explained why some people cannot see why HD is better than SD!

I'm beginning to wonder if they are looking out of a dirty window because they can't actually see the TV!

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Finally made use of my Now TV box, with sideloading a Plex app onto it and now that it isn't possible to watch Netflix USA on a UK account i dusted off the Chromecast and use UK Netflix on it.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

You can share a Netflix login across countries as far as I'm aware - however each user would get the content appropriate to the country they're in at the time.

You should be ok from what i've gathered reading various forums and articles Netflix have blocked the actual vpn/smart dns proxies not locked a users account to a region.

That's effectively a £2.99 rise for anyone wanting both entertainment and the current set of kids content :-(

Still if you take up the 6 month entertainment and movies passes (£50 for 6 months) the most that and the new kids passes will only cost is £135 a year. If you add in an Amazon Prime account and Netflix you're looking at £300 a year (or around £25 a month).

That's a lot of content for not a huge amount when compared to other pay tv packages and the accounts can cover multiple locations e.g my kids can watch Nov TV when at my parents all under 1 subscription.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Still looking for a Now TV 6 month Entertainment pass like i got with a box for £20 on black Friday, any about or any impending offers people know about?

This Now TV black box is awesome value for money considering we can sideload Plex onto it and use it as a media streamer, shame it doesn't do Netflix too!
