Best Way To Search Amazon Prime Video?
« on: December 23, 2018, 08:48:03 PM »
Is a fucking nightmare. Worse than it used to be. I've got a few days of a trial left and want to watch stuff but most things I click on need to be paid for.

The recommendations they give are mostly American and very limited in number. Surely there must be a way of searching by genre, country, etc?

Have you tried clicking on 'Included with Prime'?

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/video/storefront/ref=nav_shopall_aiv_piv?filterId=OFFER_FILTER%3DPRIME
Page is Prime only and includes genres etc

When you say search what do you mean?

If you search for something you just use the search box and then refine by Prime. If you are just browsing then the page I linked to is a start

This might help? I use the newly arrived pages for Prime and Netflix but have never tried the search pages

Thanks, both of these are a help. I've been using my Fire stick to browse what they have and it only gives you a few rows of titles but loads of pay stuff and stuff that's only available with subscriptions to countless other things.

These will make it a lot easier. When I was searching for specific titles they were always pay only. Was lucky to find Nightbreed free. Hadn't seen it in years.

ah, I've literally no experience of these usb/tv things - never even considered that's what you might be doing, all my viewing is done on a laptop nowadays. I imagine searching via a tv interface could be a pain in the arse

That's what I'm now doing. Makes it so much easier!

Just watch is a search engine that'll tell you what streaming service a certain film is on.

I use it all the time.
