The queue is a must... are you listening Amazon?

I know making it work on iPad is hard, but how difficult could it be to at least have a queue/list/library for instant videos? Amazon sucks, back to Netflix.

While I like that I have a watchlist on my Fire, I would like to use it on my laptop as well.

Is your Fire's watch list searchable?

Today was the first time that I got Amazon Instant Video set up on my PS3 and I was looking forward to setting up my queue of movies to watch in the future. But I couldn't find the Wish List button so, thinking it was just me being new to it, I Googled the question expecting to find a hint. How disappointing to find that Amazon missed such a basic, basic feature! I have come to expect Amazon to always have efficient processes - guess I'm spoiled with how easy the rest of the site is. Shame Amazon! get your act together on this good, but not fully baked idea!

Finally :) At least I have it on my PC now. Unfortunately I cannot access the watchlist/queue on my TV yet. If anyone else has a Sony Internet TV or Blu-ray please contact Sony customer support to ask that they add support for the watchlist feature. Google "sony esupport" to find the internet tv support site.

I was so excited to checkout an Amazon Prime's 30 day trial membership and all the accessible movies. I spent 2 hours creating a watch list to access later on my pc and tablet the next day. Well, day after day, after day passed and I spent so much time trying to find an app and finding how to access the movies easily from my pc that I saved to my watch list that I will absolutely not purchase Prime! I was so use to Netflix and assumed that the easy accessibility of locating movies, my queue and the section in the movie I last watched would be at least the same or better here. The inconvenience and cost of $79 is not worth it to me. I will stick with Netflix and the library.

I like the new watchlist. I can use it on my computer's web browser and on my Roku's Amazon app. Two thumbs up!

It's not just a queue that is needed, (they now have a wishlist type queue feature)
they also need a method to BROWSE movies that isn't so painstakingly difficult.
Sometimes people just don't know what to watch, so they want to BROWSE and see what there is available. Sadly, amazon has a terrible system in place at the moment. They should take a lesson from the way Netflix is set up - though that isn't quite perfect either (there are a lot of movies that are searchable but never show up on their browse menus)

Please share how you created a wishlist on your computer that you can access from the remote.

I won't renew if they haven't added easy search and queue features. Once I find a series I like, I have a tough time finding it again.

"James D. Castner says:

The very fact that it so difficult to find something you want to watch, makes the prime videos feature nearly useless."

Hello Amazon! Anyone home? The content holds merit, the interface is lacking what the competition offers. It's not worth the Prime membership to have to search and search everytime you want to watch something.

Any plans to address this failure before I cancel?

You guys are apparently not aware that there is now a "Watchlist" that serves essentially the same purpose as the Queue in Netflix. It is not available on all devices yet, since it seems that some manufacturers are using older versions of the Amazon app, but Roku has it and the Amazon web site has it, so if you are not seeing it, you should talk to the maker of your device.

Seems a few people have decided to take me to task for this comment for some reason. I'm just telling folks who didn't seem to know yet that Amazon has added this feature and my guess is that as client updates start getting out there, this feature will probably start showing up on old devices as well. But I'm an end-user just like the rest of you, so please don't jump on me if your device doesn't yet have (or never does get) this new feature.

Amazon is responsible for the service they offer, not the device makers. Nice try though....

Agreed J., as if the only the buyers of new, certain devices can have Amazon video work the way that it should, but not all the rest of us.

I have a question or two :0) If anyone knows please respond: 1. When watching Amazon Prime through my blu ray player I have not found My Watchlist anywhere? Has anyone else been able to locate it? It's a pain to watch Amazon anywhere but my laptop because of having to search "forever" to find the series I've been watching and 2. Does anyone know if I should be able to access my Amazon Prime Instant on my I Pad 2? I've not been able to find a way for me to watch my videos on my Ipad like I can through Netflix...so just wondering? Thanks for any input. Amazon Prime Instant is improving with the shows they're putting online (excited about NYPD Blue) so I have hopes that they will continue to improve.

Nice try? I wasn't trying anything. Just telling you. The device manufacturers have to update their apps. Some like Sony seem to do their own custom thing, others just use different versions. Amazon has to work with them, but I suspect they don't/can't force them to do updates on any certain schedule. But I don't know what deals they strike to manage this stuff.

Nobody said that. But I did say some devices *have* been updated, while others *have not*. And the phrase about it working "the way that it should" seems a mis-statement. The way that it should when? The way it should have before the software is updated or after? Amazon has apparently added the ability to have a watchlist if the client supports it. Amazon doesn't rule the manufacturer of a give device. They may have agreements where the client has to supports certain things, but a new feature probably has a time period where support is phased in. No idea how this works out in practice. Just saying if your device doesn't support the watchlist, you might want to talk to the people who make the device about updating the client.

Sounds like your Blu-Ray player's Amazon app does not support the new feature. Whether they will update it or not, I don't know but I can tell you my TV and my Blu-Ray do not have the watchlist yet while my Roku does. I'd suggest talking to Blu-Ray drive maker's support people and see what they say. I'd suggest talking to Amazon about it as well, but they seem to be fairly quiet on the issue.

For me, the watchlist feature did not show up until I re-installed the Amazon channel on my Roku(s). I am not familiar with other devices so I don't know if you can uninstall and reinstall channels/apps. I also have to remind myself at times when I might be tempted to complain about certain things to remember that I am not PAYING for Amazon's video service. It's a free benefit of my Prime Membership. I have had Prime without the VOD service and for me it was still a great deal. This is just an added bonus. Improvements will be made I am sure. I look forward to the day when I can cancel my Neflix account!!

I was sincere with the nice try comment, but I see how you could take offense (I meant none).

Well said, both of you. I am simply expressing my frustrations with the service though - it needs to improve. I got Prime for the streaming, the free shipping was just gravy. Their approach is sorely lacking in my opinion and it will not get better unless customers offer feedback.
