Prime TV Review
by on August 28, 2011
TV viewing has been a commodity for so many for what seems like forever – but there’s a problem when it comes to working out how to most efficiently spend your time in front of the goggle box.
With thousands of channels and many more shows on these days, even if you know what you want to watch you still only feel like you’re skimming the service.
Prime TV is designed for those that love getting involved with a TV series, allowing searching to find the next episodes, logging future showings and even downloading pictures and showing YouTube videos for the next episode if available, which is an awesome touch.
It’s a shame YouTube isn’t integrated into the app, but that’s Microsoft and Google’s fault, not Prime TV.
There’s actually too much on offer here to do the application justice – notifications when a show is about to start, Trakt.TV integration to let you log your viewing history and interact with the like-minded, ShoutBox to comment on the show in question… we advise you to go and play with the trial at least before realising its 79p well spent.
The only reason we’ve marked it down is the inability to filter between countries – it’s fun reading about US shows, but for general use we’d prefer to only look at our region and check out the US on occasion – when/if this functionality occurs, we’ll award top marks.
