    More of a rant kind of, but something I have noticed.

    I have a prime membership and find it ironic what I can use to stream videos and such.

    Kindle Fire (HD), well, obviously
    My MBP.
    Other Desktop computer.
    Some Set top boxes and DVD players, Apple TV don't work, but I think the Roku player will
    An iPad!
    And my android using self is left out.

    Seriously, ipads!? And my Nexus 7 is left out in the cold!?

    Okay, I can kind of see why because amazon is pushing their own custom android device, but to shut me out and allow iPads, that is kind of messed up :rolleyes:

    Well, I guess my MBP will work just as well.

    I have prime but have never used the streaming service. I remember it was pretty bad selection wise when it first came out. Has it improved?

    Honestly, I have not really streamed movies and TV shows from prime. I keep meaning to, but keep forgetting I have to. Usually just assuming what ever I want to watch at the time is not available for free streaming.

    I should look into it more.

    Kindle fires that are rooted and custom ROM'd won't do it either.

    I rarely actually watch anything from Prime, but I was THRILLED when I first tried it and found that it worked on Linux. :eek: I expected the usual windows-only system requirements. :rolleyes: When I do watch anything from Prime, it's on my laptop. So I'm not having the issues the OP is. But if I did...I'd be pissed, too.

    Yep, I am a bit "miffed" as well that Prime won't stream to my tablet (Asus T300T) :( Hopefully they will rectify this sometime soon.

    I prefer Netflix for streaming content.

    I use Netflix too, but had no idea that Amazon shuts out Android.
    Shame on them!!
