I'm an Amazon Prime member, and have the Amazon app installed on my PS3, and linked my PS3 to my Amazon account. When I search a TV show/movie that's free streaming for Amazon Prime, it tells me I can buy the episodes on my PS3 and that it's free for Prime, but will not let me play anything via Prime.
An example is the Chappelle Show season 1. It says it's $1.99 an episode or free for Prime. When I click on it, it says it's $1.99 for the episode, and that it's free for Prime but won't let me click on Prime or click Play anywhere, my only option is to click Buy it Now.
I was able to stream but then bump in the night and now when I select an episode of anything it starts the circle thing then just goes right back to the amazon episode menu screen. This happens with movies or tv shows.
Hi guys, just thought I'd update on my situation.. Amazon VOD was working fine, then suddenly it wouldn't play or load any videos. I sent emails to amazon, with no reply, so I deleted the app from the PS3 and re-installed/re-registered it and now it is working fine. Hope that helps anyone else here.
Yep. Getting the nice big splash screen for Downtown Abbey and a beautiful little spinning wheel that just goes and goes and goes. From the history of this problem. this service wasn't ready for primetime. Still love Amazon, but it's got to be pretty embarassing for them.
My PS3 has the same problem, locks up, gets the 'circle' in the center of the screen and sits forever without progressing. When I hook up my laptop to the TV via HDMI and stream Amazon VOD, I have absolutely no problems.
