I love the fact that Amazon is presenting these games. As a cord cutter and long time Prime subscriber, nothing better. However, implementation has issues. I keep getting the 1060 errors. These occur mostly during the games, not in the pre-game parts. I need to retry/stop and reload. Sometimes I need to restart my TV itself. Not much fun watching games this way. Also, the resolution pretty bad during first 15 seconds or so. It usually gets clear after that. However, I keep getting the resolution issues during the game. My net speed is >80 mbps and I connect through ethernet cable, so that should not be a problem.
So good initiative Amazon, but you need to fix these issues asap.
I have cable and amazon prime, so I have options. Reasons for why I don't watch TNF on Amazon: 1. No pause and rewind (thank you DVR). I want to be able to pause while I do other things and rewind to watch that TD celebration, scuffle, awesome pass, or whatever. 2. Occasional lag. I just can't stand it; this never happens when I'm watching on cable.
Amazon has a good thing going here. I see alot of reviews affected by technical issues, keep in mind that this is a first attempt and there are bound to be some. My experience overall is that Amazon seriously outperforms live streaming competitors such as Sling, Fubo, and Watch Espn with viewing quality on a 4G connection. If they will continue to build on it and get more access and rights as Verizon has to games, NFL followers would really have it going on. The downside: Not enough games covered. At the least, it would have been nice for them to have the entire slate of Thursday night games instead of a partial offering.
I like NFL football I like the idea that football is available on Amazon
1 - it is frustrating that it won't stream to my ROKU device, so I have to watch it from my PC 2 - the stream quality is poor for 2 reasons a) it freezes either spontaneously, or whenever a commercial <> game transition happens b) the audio is out of synch [5 seconds ahead] of the video Having to keep hitting the site refresh and reselect the game on Prime is really a poor user experience Having to hear about how the play is going 5 seconds before I can see it is really a poor user experience
How does Amazon get away with NOT supporting Roku players (and other devices) for streaming TNF? The streaming quality on my Macbook is so poor, I had to check the year to make sure it wasn't 2005. It's blurry, massively delayed, and lags like an elephant trudging through mud.
This is big FU to football fans that went prime to watch TNF on the Roku or similar devices.
