Amazon Prime Instant Video Issues ReportsLatest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
Unpopular opinion: I don't like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video services. Worse case scenario, makes me lag. Worst case scenario, takes beloved franchises and blows it out of proportion. Best case scenario, I don't watch 'em.
Atlas Shrugged hit Amazon Prime video. Part III has to count as one of the worst movies I've bothered to watch. Ed Wood meets Alan Smithee. Unintentionally a parody...
@Jyrinx @Maggie_McNeill @Sarcastic_hubby @CBS I had to look that up. Unfortunately, the series is not available on Amazon or Netflix. I did find a poor quality video of season 1 episode 1 on Youtube, though. I liked The Wire and The Deuce, but aside from Simon's work, I consider crime dramas to be pure fiction.
Real world problem here (not). I have Xfinity, and an Amazon Prime account. Cannot work out how to view Prime Video’s on my TV (old school..... I do not watch movies on anything other than a TV). Any tips @amazon-prime
Pro-tip: (for American viewers) If you don’t want to use the awful CBS app to stream #StarTrekDiscovery you can buy the CBS pass on Amazon Video and use their app instead. #CBSAllAccess
@UberHaxorNova what I find super coincidental is in an Amazon video you use a walking boot for broken legs/ankles in a bit and I was laughing to my bro cause I had a broken ankle and was like "wait until he actually needs one, it's even less fun" and THEN YOU BROKE YOUR ANKLE
We’re currently experiencing outages when streaming “The Real with Joseph Azarian” and “Aware: Racism” on Amazon Prime Video. “This Is Family” is so far unaffected by the outage.
i'm really upset that they took the twilights off of amazon prime video... what will i do without my guilty pleasure movie @PrimeVideo please fix it
@CraveHelp I’m having trouble with your app for the Amazon FireTV. 9 times out of 10 it tells me I need a CraveTV subscription to view the video, even though I am already logged in. I have no trouble viewing video on the iOS app. Please help.

@DavidWWarfield It's a Ring "spotlight cam." It's pretty good, really easy to setup and get working out of the box. the mobile app "just works." I also have a Ring video doorbell. Also good. Ring is owned by Amazon, and they recently were exposed for major privacy issues. UGHHH
@feralbecky @alleycatallies @nwinograd @natgeowild @AmazonVideo 9. Because feces, no matter who pooped it, can cause an epidemic of sickness! #RomaineLettuce I have one more problem with @natgeowild, @natgeokids, @nationalgeopraphic
@feralbecky @alleycatallies @nwinograd @natgeowild @AmazonVideo 6. ..all resulting from HUMAN activity, is the cause of decimation of wildlife, extinction of species! NOT cats, dogs, squirrels, horses. HUMANS are the problem species.
I tried to watch a movie via Amazon's video service recently. It would have cost €2.99 for me to watch it, which I was perfectly happy to pay. But I couldn't, as I am in Ireland, and not the UK, and apparently this is an issue. I couldn't find anywhere else to legitimately...
@TheDerrit True, but I think there are relatively simple ways to combat the worst of this. You're talking about Google/Amazon here. Start with English only. Hire 1-2 full time people to work on tag curation. Limit the # of tags any one channel/video can use to something small. Moderate.
Amazon prime subscription is a terrible thing.. more physical books on top of my prime reading which is included.. and video... #contentoverload
Obviously these aren't game-breaking problems. Online video continues to grow at every year. Nor is it a simple fix. Literally Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft are investing in video and theoretically discovery.
@Se_Railway Your wifi is good from my experience on the High Speed trains but I have never managed to get the Amazon Prime Video to work. Always some sort of streaming error on my phone.
Science of Hitting
@comcastcares It's an issue with my account specifically, it's a question of Comcast and ESPN / Disney working together for integration on the Xfinity box (similar to the agreements Comcast has with Netflix and Amazon for Prime Video).
Weird Cool Dumb
@misseseel Nope, I've been having issues with the site on and off for about 20 minutes now. Others have reported issues with Prime Video, Alexa, etc. #Amazon
NO FREE TAKIS
amazon just recommended me an industrial quality electric meat slicer. honestly can't figure out why, but Jeff knows best and it was 40% off. review video up in 2 days.
@DrMcFunkyPants @zTengoku @XboxSupport Yeah it’s hard to pin point. I seen they were having issues with amazon video earlier for Xbox. I got twitch up and running for the night so hoping it’ll get fixed by the morning.
@NBCNews "White Guilt" is not new. I see that Shelby Steele wrote a book by that title. Read what Amazon has to say about it. NBC did not publish this video for the purpose of healing racial problems, but to further divide. The past has been horrific. The press seeks to exploit that.
@CraveTVHelp I’m having trouble with your app for the Amazon FireTV. 9 times out of 10 it tells me I need a CraveTV subscription to view the video, even though I am already logged in. I have no trouble viewing video on the iOS app. Please help.
@XboxSupport Amazon video won't stream... Loads choices but then nothing but a black screen. Have uninstalled and reinstalled app, no change. Help please.
@TeamYouTube @TeamYouTube I have checked for any issues on my events page as your documentation suggests, and the video that is there, is the one that amazon themselves released from copyright after i lodged an appeal. So therefore i have resolved any issues that prevent me from livestreaming
@XboxSupport Amazon Prime video is not working on Xbox. Seems to be working on other devices.
@AmazonHelp my amazon prime video isn’t working on my Xbox One. Having searched the issue on Twitter is looks like it’s an issue your side. And yes, I’ve troubleshooted lol the usual things. Please let me know when it’s fixed!
Amazon Prime Video is so ******* shit why does it buffer all the time
Bad Hindu krishnryn
@mrtechsingh @TechnoTalkyYT @YouTube In My Mi 4A Amazon prime video not working. @xiaomi promise to solve the problem but still it is same. Customers are look fools in India.
If my problem is not resolved by tomorrow I will share a video of opening box and which show what kind of service provided by amazon prime member.
@LifeisaGameCa @zerohedge agreed, the quality of their programs ,movies are terrible, these days everyone is a writer & director & the quality proves it, not like the 70;s, 80's 90's so much better less programs, more is not always better, Amazon video too
@chetfaliszek Amazon video quality streaming sometimes falls behind. I own some on Flixster, MoviesAnywhere, Amazon, and VUDU. VUDU has good image/streaming quality, but also, you can sync MoviesAnywhere and VUDU accounts and watch what you own on either service.
@altonbrown @CookingChannel The one problem watching via Amazon video. Not getting it til the next day
@NokiamobileIN @nokia Nokia 7 Plus supports Widevine L1. But HD streaming is not working in Amazon Prime Video or Netflix

@justinrdawson They won't really fix the issue. They are trying to do what Google did with Google Voice to improve voice recognition (except Google was up front with users). Amazon is using all the free video from the doorbells to improve their facial recognition, but really didn't tell users.
@prabhuferrari Amazon fire stick here...absolutely no issues. Hotstar , Netflix and Amazon video all working well.
Think the "Facebook effect" is a big reason why Amazon and Google continue to push free voice calls and video chats as a key feature. Beyond being an obvious use case, people have a hard time quitting services that help them connect and keep in touch with loved ones.
rachel, i guess
thanks @catastrophephe for giving me access to her amazon prime video account so i can watch mr. robot. It's almost 6am and i spent the entire day binge-watching it instead of working on my math problem set due today technically :))) still worth it
from Gainesville, Florida
lmao y’all i hate amazon prime video. i pay $6.99 yo watch these homemade movies😂😂😂 this acting and quality be ass as ****
My GOD the amazon video player is AWFUL
@sophchang @IjeomaOluo i am SO JEALOUS that you had to google Ben Shapiro. I was also recommended an "Amazon Alexa is a CRAZY SJW!" video with 7 MILLION views next to the video of Ijeoma as well. I think they were recommended to me bc of some awful altright videos I watched thanks to @chick_in_kiev :(
@AmazonHelp And #Amazon #AmazonIndia if you are not fixing this issue by today then i will upload one more video and i will distory SDCAM on road then then i will upload that video in official channel. And then i will ask amazon to my pay my trip bill which i loose and cam price.
@AmazonHelp #Amazon #AmazonIndia since i loose 20k rs because of amazon mistake. Who will take responsible for that. I am a business man and youtuber i have not upload that video on official channel right now if i get that done i think amazon will get into big problem.
@AmazonHelp Sorry i don't want to talk to customer care any more because u don't help me at all and #Amazon #amazonindia they have sent me wrong product at first place. Its my luck that i have made unboxing video for that order or else #amazon #AmazonIndia may blame me changing the product.
@IGN So now we have Verizon, Amazon, Microsoft, google, Sony, possibly Nintendo, and many others I’m forgetting sounds like a video game crash really is about to be upon us if consumers don’t pay attention and keep to the good brands
I don't know which one is worst - publicly liked a porn video in Twitter OR get your private **** pic chat in an affair exposed in news outlet. Amazon of course can't fire Jeff Bezos because of that. We have to re-think our approach to candidates' social media when hiring.
please watch "eating out" on Amazon prime video it's the worst
I have this doorbell. There should be a way to leverage the event triggers to record locally, but then again they would lose money. Also, I'd rather have a rando on the other side of the globe watching video to help train their neural network than some temp worker amazon hired
@SonosSupport It is not the Amazon account that is the problem, same Amazon account and Alexa app works fine in both locations with all other apps and devices, such as Idevices, Nest cameras and thermostats, Ring video doorbells and multiple Alexa devices. It is your poor app. I’m not ....
@FranklinH3000 As a temporary fix, just add the series to your watchlist on a web browser & it should be available to stream on Roku through your Amazon Video app.
@itsworthyt Ricegum was called out for making a video promoting a gambling website to kids. He responded by saying "I'm sorry, here have some amazon gift cards." Already pretty awful... ...but then it turns out the gift cards were used already. 2x the scam! @FTC @USAO_LosAngeles @FBI
@ghettoglass That’s a Netflix issue. Amazon Prime Video only has that problem if you initiate the program outside of the app.
@mikeestee @samfbiddle There's also a problem with data security, quoting the article "Ring provided its Ukraine-based research and development team virtually unfettered access to a folder on Amazon’s S3 cloud storage service that contained every video created by every Ring camera around the world"
@XiaomiIndia I am having 43" Mi TV but unable to run Amazon Prime Video. You announced that all old tv will also get update and they will become AndroidTV. Till date no update. Your support centre is worst. They know nothing. Time Waste @xiaomi @MiIndiaSupport

@Dragoneer Yeah, it was fantastic in Chrome before. Lately I kept having frame skipping issues going on, or freezes, and massive memory consumption. Good to have an alternative now, I can only Amazon Video so much before I wanna vomit.
@OneMan2Names Yea use hbo go or amazon prime video. Thought that was the way you were watching. Those last seasons were awful
@7H3Wh173R4bb17 One of the 0DayAllDay Researches here. This article is SOOO wrong. This isn't Amazon's product. @my_guardzilla sold their product on @amazon. They also used AWS S3 service for video storage. All blame should be on Guardzilla please fix or remove your post.
I wish I still had Amazon Video because I never got to finish watching “Hannibal” and I also wanted to watch “The Sopranos.” Someone help a broke boy out ✊😔
hiii how do u cancel an amazon prime video free trial. i really am broke and dont want the subscription to turn regular. pls help
