I've yet to be convinced that Amazon Prime would benefit me in any way.
Many thanks to all our members, who have made PC Pals such an outstanding success!   :thumb:

I've come to the same conclusion Sam.  Even when it was working my Kodi box was difficult to navigate and most streams would be duds or have foreign subtitles and/or poor quality.  Netflix is very reliable, easy to navigate and has plenty of content for just 6 a month which doesn't break the bank. I know you can get Amazon free with Prime but there doesn't appear to be a lot of free content available on Amazon TV.  I have it myself and haven't seen much more than re-runs of Robin Hood starring Richard Greene.  Most stuff still has to be paid for.

I really like the stuff on Prime.. but yeah lots of stuff not worth watching... all works together well. I have prime for the normal amazon delivery stuff... and music!

I only have it because my son swears by Prime and is allowed to install it on several TVs.   :laugh:

To be honest, I'm quite satisfied with terrestrial TV.  It's just that Game Of Thrones is rather good.

I used to pick it up on Kodi but it wasn't Mrs Clive's cup of tea.  I haven't noticed it on Netflix.  You might be able to get it on Now TV which includes Sky Atlantic for around 8 a month and you can unsubscribe at any time.  They have a lot of Box sets and Game of Thrones just may be included.  I think you can get a 14 day free trial.

I think Sky own Now tv so I would imagine you can get GOT on it. Definitely not on Netflix.
I tried Prime (inadvertantly   :blush:) a few years ago and found the quality of the stream quite poor at times, whereas Netflix is usually really good if you have the HD or UHD subscription. I love GOT myself, but opted for the disc box set route.

I think the UHD version of Netflix costs 10 a month.
