Amazon Prime - What has Amazon done to there Prime service... http://www.Amazon.Co.UK/Prime
Well, renewal for the service automatically includes Amazon Instant Video, pushing the cost up of course.
There's no choice, you either accept the hike in cost or you cancel your Prime subscription.
When I asked if we can opt out of the video service, I was informed with this:
" The GBP 49.00 membership, which included unlimited One-Day delivery and access to Kindle Owners' Lending Library, has been replaced by the new and improved GBP 79.00 Prime membership, which includes Prime Instant Video. The GBP 49.00 membership is no longer be available. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this causes. "
I don't use Kindle, but that was okay.
I don't use video streaming because my rubbish Internet (thanks BT!).
So why does Amazon think Forcing a more than 50% price increase to there delivery service (Prime, I use it for next day delivery like most people) will be good for customers?!?!
I refuse to see this change as a replacement, it's simply not.
I will be terminating my Amazon Prime subscription before renewal, I recommend you check your renewal date before you get stung by Amazon.
I will also stop using the Amazon Market after my cancellation.
Amazon, you've let your customers down, this should have been optional not forced.
