Last time I checked Grand Tour was included within the prime subscription, a selection of movies are also included some good ones but you have to fish around the majority of more recent movies are not included. If you have any in particular I will check for you. In all honesty the movies are a bonus in my eyes as I mainly use amazon for purchases.

Re: Have you the time to explain Amazon tv to me

You need to have a Smart TV ie one with Apps eg the Amazon PrimeApp etc, or an Amazon Fire receiver that connects to your internet connection to talk to the Amazon Prime streaming service. Membership of Amazon Prime gives you access to the streaming service via your logonid and password.

Once you have logged in you see a list pf programs and films, some are a no cost item and some have a charge. The free ones you can watch them as many times as you like, the chargeable ones give you unlimited access for several days. Each film or program has a specific price, the older the film, the cheaper it is, they occasionally have special bargains.

You need a good broadband connection, I have found the picture and sound quality to be better than the Sky provided service.

If you keep a look out Amazon do special offers to get you hooked onto the service .

Re: Have you the time to explain Amazon tv to me

Grand Tour is included ( surprised me!) so is a lot of stuff but they do occasionally remove stuff from Prime. We got a few series into something only for it to disappear without warning. Annoying but it’s only happened the once. I download and watch Grand Tour when on flights to faraway places. I usually find though that music I want to listen to isn’t on the ‘free with Prime’ music feature.

Grand tour is included with prime along with many, but not all movies. Just take the free trial and see for yourself.
