If you want the full version of Prime, you need to view it through the Fire stick, Roku or some other additional box or stick.
But then you might unsubscribe to the VM channels, I guess that's what they're afraid of.

Are they completely missing or greyed out or something?

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

I've checked on the 360 and the V6 and on the HOME page of the Amazon app is a section listing all 'Your Channels' which are my Amazon Prime Channel subscriptions. As with SkyQ they play fine!

The BTtv app for Amazon also plays them although that already has the BritBox app added.

I've attached an image from the 360 - but the V6 looks identicle.

It is always worth checking out the Prime Channels are there are often deals - like £1pm for 3 months.

Seems like Now TV are trying to force people into taking the Now TV Boost or face ads.

You sure about that? I subscribed to Starzplay's free 7 days and it played fine on the Prime App on my V6 earlier this month, no problem at all.

Only fair enough - suggest it only works on 1 broadband connection, thus becoming a 1 household service rather than allowing friends to share.

The ‘channels’ section on the Fire stick and Roku is missing from the V6 version of Prime.

However, for some reason, you seem to be able to enter ‘StarzPlay’ and sure enough, StarzPlay content comes up. It may be, of course, that Prime simply has joint rights to the programmes that appear, as is the case when you enter ‘Britbox’.

It might be good to check out StarzPlay via Virgin’s on demand system to see if it has more content than Prime does in respect of StarzPlay content.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

Two pictures attached - one from the Amazon Firestick and one from the Amazon Prime app on the V6. The one recommending Doom Patrol is the V6.

Both look the same list to me!?

I checked the 360 too and it looks the same as the V6.
