Just before New Year I decided to do a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime. I'm not a fan of paid cable TV, as most of it is excessively expensive and you end up watching trashy poor quality programmes.
Amazon Prime is £7.99 a month, or £79 a year, and to be honest I have had more than good value so far based on what I have received. The majority of what I have watched (and yes, I did have a bit of a binge!) was on my wishlist for presents for Christmas and birthdays:
- Vikings season 1
- Outlander season 1
- Outlander season 2
- Lucifer season 1
- Lucifer season 2
- Preacher season 1
- Versailles season 1
- Me Holmes (film)
- A Single Man (film)
- A few episodes of Sleepy Hollow and Ripper Street, both of which while interesting didn't grab me so I didn't watch any more
A few other programmes I would never have watched, including a documentary on minimalism and an obese man's journey on a 40 day fast. There are many more I have identified that are worth watching.
If I received those listed above as DVDs it would have amounted to around £100. Add to that the discounts on goods, next day deliveries, the odd free kindle book to read, and the fact that Martin has been added as a second user for free so he gets to also benefits, I'm pretty happy that Amazon Prime is worth keeping for now.
