Is WOT alone worth the subscription to Amazon?

    I do not have a membership to Amazon Prime at the moment. I love WoT, but is that one show worth getting a full subscription? Those who have a sub, what other shows on AP are noteworthy? I’ve heard about Marvelous Ms Maisel, but little else...

    Dunno, haven’t seen it yet.

    Man in the High Castle comes to mind though.

    I mean it's Prime? There's all kinds of perks. I get it for the 2 day shipping, but I also get a free kindle book a month too.

    They have a Lord of the Rings universe show in development too I think.

    My Dad has had Prime for years, I was not aware you get a free Kindle book per month... googling this now, if I can't find out how to do it I will ask you for link! :ok

    Are you sure that is prime? Kindle Unlimited is seperate subscription to Prime... hmm I can't find it on initial searches... help!!!

    Oh I lied, they changed the name of the program, it's Amazon First Reads now. I get an email every month letting me know the options for the month. They don't always have something I want so I don't always get it, but it's definitely a fun program!

    Prime has Picard and The Boys... and I recommend those very much. Jack Ryan is good too, if you're into thriller/action. Carnival Row was one of the best fantasy series I watched 2019. :)
    And it's only one third of Netflix's cost.

    In England too. . . It is handy for the free / next day shipping too... My recommendation though if you're only really interested in watching the WoT show @Verix a'Dyr would be to find a friend who already has it and offer to pay towards their subscription to log in ad just watch WoT.

    Picard in Norway at Prime too ^^

    So yeah, everyone above have said what good show it is on there. Can't you check out the information page about prime, to see if it's any program you like there?

    Prime has Picard everywhere except USA / Canada. What it does have here though is The Expanse which is excellent sci-fi.

    People have pointed out the other benefits of Amazon Prime, but ultimately it's a personal decision whether the cost is worth it. When Game of Thrones was on, for example, I decided that it was worth subscribing to HBO for two months so I could watch it live, and then canceled the sub right after. I'm doing the same thing with CBS All-Access so I can watch Picard, and then Discovery when the new season comes out. However, I decided that watching the His Dark Materials series wasn't worth getting HBO, so I still haven't seen it.

    Oh, if you do Twitch stuff at all, you could also check out the Prime benefits you get there. I get one free subscription to a Twitch channel every 30 days, three or four free indie games a month, and then they'll do in-game loot for bigger games like League of Legends.

    I'm definitely going to get it just for WoT.

    I have it Prime already - Good Omens is AMAZING, but short. I've not really gotten into the rest of what they have to offer, but The kindle unlimited thing is interesting to me, just so I can read on my phone.

    I order enough stuff that the two-day shipping alone is worth it. I use it to watch a variety of shows as well.

    I made a reference to that the other day in a Discord server and no one knew what I was talking about. I was very disappointed
