Hi.
For 2 weeks the prime list is not up2date. It's completely wrong. At least for my location: Germany.

If I use the advanced title search for "most voted films I haven't seen yet, which are free with Prime", I get the following results:

1.) Reservoir Dogs --> not free with prime germany
2.) Requiem for a Dream --> not free
3.) Avernger 2: Age of Ultron --> not free
4.) Arrival --> not free
5.) Nigtcrawler --> not free
6.) Band of Brothers --> not free
7.) Pearl Harbor --> not free
8.) Total Recall (1990) --> not free
9.) Hannibal --> not free
10.) 10 Cloverfield Lane --> FFRRRREEEEEEEE

Would be nice, if you could report this bug, find the mistake and make an update.

Thanks

Hi there,

Please know that at this time the advanced search Instant Watch Options filter for "Prime Video" only applies to Prime Video titles on Amazon.com (rather than Amazon.de or other global Amazon sites). I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please let us know if we can offer any further assistance.

Yes, you can. Filtering via advanced title search for local prime, e.g. .de (germany) was possible for at least two years now. So why did you change that. Please rechange it.

UPDATE:
Just found out, that it still works, if you manually change "...availability=US/today/Amazon....." in "...availability=DE/....." in the URL.

So you only have to tell someone of the technical staff to change some settings, so that it works automatically via IP-Location or else.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled "Watch Now on Prime Video" isn't correct......

Videos that say "Watch Now on Prime Video," (even those w/o the "on disk" icon to the right) aren't available on Prime. Superjail! is an example. Click on the "Watch Now" link & you are asked to purchase. "Home Movies," "Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil," "All Hail King Julien," "Mr. Pickles," "Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law," "Squidbillies," to name a lot, do the same thing. wtf??????? and f is for folly. i don't swear. but wanted to see the crazy king j's antics!

Hi Jennifer,

Prime Video now encompasses content available to stream for free for Prime members and content available for purchase. As a result, the Prime Video logo will display on any titles within the Prime Video library, rather they are free to watch for Prime members or need to be purchased.

Actually, this is what appears to be true:

if the video is free on amazon prime, when it says "Watch Now on Prime Video," there will be a "Watch Now" icon to the right.

If that icon isn't there, it's not free.

it seem the movies show a price: Movies that are not free on Prime say, "Watch Now From $x.xx... on Prime Video,"
and the TV shows don't: TV shows that are not free say "Watch Now on Prime Video."

sometimes if you can watch episodes on prime and buy a dvd of the show, there is a disk icon to the right (like "Friends").

sometimes if you can watch episodes on prime and buy a dvd of the show, there is no icon to the right (like "Superjail!)

so it is inconsistent and confusing (at least)...
