I'm waiting for the latest episode of a t.v. show to show up in the Amazon Video on Demand queue, for me to buy. It ended on t.v. already, and the FAQs from Amazon say they upload "as soon as possible" after it airs on t.v., which is pretty much as vague as they can make it (how soon is that? An hour? A day? 2 days? A week?).
So I thought I'd ask the experts (other users) how long it usually takes, in their experience. Thanks!
I really think within several hours but I really dont know exact because im in bed not too long after the show ends. By the morning though its aval for download.. Safe rule is just expect it when you get up in the morning..
it usually takes about 24 hrs :hardly ever on the same day, usually becomes available the day after, sometime in the afternoon...Some shows show up quicker than others, but you can always write CS and ask them "where's my show" ?they will usually then put it up within a few hours...good luck!
Write to them!If they usually follow the show and previous episodes are posted sometimes they're a bit slow or seem to "forget" ??? Either way, Ive noticed that when i write to customer service through "contact" and ask them why the latest episode hasnt been posted yet and if they intend to do so eventually or have just stopped the show for some reason...I usually notice the episode in question gets posted in the next 12 hours or so.Worked for me both times I bothered to write,so try it!
Most likely, it's whenever the content owner feels is a good wait time to put it online, much like how Hulu is often hamstrung by eight-day or even five-week delays. Only speedier because Amazon actually knows how to negotiate for decent distribution rights.
way a couple of seasons of the (non prime) single SoA episodes worked for me on the east coast was 10-11/12 pm here and available 3-5am here (usually by4am). I'll ride with tanya above and say 5 hours after initial airing begins is about the norm.
reason I'm scoping around now is a FULL SEASON ONLY purchase option was made possible at the start of the shows normal EST time and now I plunked more than 10 single show prices at once and am curious as to how this works and dying to see the shows final seasons premiere... =) (update as to how that current issue pans out later)
