Amazon Prime Video finally makes it to Apple TV. I'm sure that there's a better thread for this, but this is the one that I found.

Maybe? I saw a content that seemed to indicate that it was possible. But you won't get the rapid package delivery part of Prime. I don't know if music streaming is bundled with Prime Video.

You can at $9/mo. Hard to see that as compelling when it's included in Prime at $99/yr.

Probably due to Amazon not wanting to give Apple a cut, rentals and bought movies won't play. Since we buy our movies on Amazon Video, pbttth. Still happy with the Roku at half the cost.

Gruber is... not happy about Amazon's app for Apple TV, and is not shy about sharing why.

I spent about 60 seconds in the app, seemed better than Hulu.

No time to check. Made sure that it would play the Man in the High Castle, and the Tick, and left.

I'm hearing very good things about The Last Jedi - fingers crossed it lives up to the Hype...

Seeing it Sunday evening. My office is seeing it Friday, but I wanted to see it with my kids.

Saw a comment that now that Disney has bought the Fox media assets, Lana Kane, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and the alien queen from Aliens are all Disney Princesses. Long may they reign.

In an attempt to expand my horizons beyond my own echo chamber, I follow a FB page called Star Wars Sithposting.

I mostly ignore a lot of the alt-right nonsense because there are the odd memes that are genuinely funny.

But oh man, the butthurt they're expressing over The Last Jedi, where to begin. I'd hate to peek into the darker corners of reddit, 4chan, townhall, and all the MRA sites.

Basically, unless Luke Skywalker donned an SS uniform and force-choked every non-caucasian in the movie, they're not happy.

ARL, you can always go back through the (sadly not updated lately) pages at http://www.wehuntedthemammoth.com/ to get out of your echo chamber. There's even neo-Nazi and MRA reactions to new Star Wars in there.

Just to add to the "not ARL's reaction": I tried watching Rogue One (didn't pay for it) and had to start doing other things because I just didn't care. I was more engaged by the "what, a Star Destroyer can fucking hover in an atmosphere now" than any of the characters or the plot. I really don't care about the Abrams movies. I'd be fine just liking the actors as themselves and looking at production design drawings.
