How is Amazon making money on productions such as Mozart in Jungle
Production value is decent. Production went overseas several times. No ads in shows. The cost of a prime membership can't possible cover production costs of shows such as this one.

Market share.

Brand.

Netflix and Prime don't have to but it's in their interest to do so. What else are the going to do with all the money they make?

I imagine they make money on international distribution for a show like that, right? Can sell it to air on TV in France, UK, etc.?

Potentially you could sell it off for domestic syndication further down the line as well.

If it causes people to get Prime memberships or keep Prime, it's worth it. Plus, they shell out all this money for a show that people can watch years from now.

It's all part of Amazon's plan to rule the internet. A lot of people don't know this, but Amazon Prime comes with Amazon Music, which is free, but they've introduced Amazon Music Premium which grants access to something like four times the amount of songs find in the basic and it has a monthly fee. They will likely eventually do the same thing for Video, until Video and Music are both like Audible originally was before they introduced Audible Streaming Channels.

At some point, all your subscription services will run through Amazon.

That's probably more b/c Amazon Prime has a shitty user interface. It's a pain in the arse to find things to watch compared to Hulu/Netflix and they don't really promote their exclusive shows as well as they should. The only UI I've used on a streaming service that was worse was Yahoo Screen (which was so bad the service was essentially DOA).

What I don't understand is why Amazon Prime Video sucks on every non-Amazon device I've tried, from TVs to BD players to the latest Roku. If they're gonna provide the app, make it work decent, without long periods of SD quality, poor performance after skipping back or forward, etc. I guess they really want you on a Fire device.

Totally not the point of the thread, but that's a great show.

We occasionally have problems. We have Smart TVs and Rokus, so we can usually bypass whichever device is refusing Amazon.

It is a shitty interface but prime works on my smart TV and Roku without any problem.

They aren't making direct money on these shows kind of like Netflix isn't making direct money on House of Cards or the many comedy specials they are dumping money into. But the plan is to have a large enough library of stuff that it makes paying for prime or Netflix worth it.

Weird, the Amazon performance was so bad on my 2013 Panasonic TV and 2015 Sony BD player that I had to buy a Fire Stick. That wireless dongle was night and day compared to the wired components, which had no problem with Netflix. The stick is even slightly better than a Roku Premiere+ I recently tried.

As for Netflix, nothing I've seen beats the Apple TV 4, including that Roku. The ATV4 is so quick to resume after skipping forward/back, while the Roku went completely black for about a second. In addition, the ATV4 has that awesome touchpad scrub feature, which is the one great feature in what is otherwise an abortion of a remote.

I can honestly say I have NEVER had a problem with Prime Video.

Maybe I need to film this shite. My Sony BD player is especially bad. It takes it literally a minute to go from SD to HD, and it starts this over from scratch every time I skip back, forward, whatever. I even called Amazon to report this, and although they promised to get back to me, they never did. My TV isn't much better. Neither device has these problems with Netflix, so I concluded Amazon was purposely crippling their app to encourage purchase of Fire devices. It worked on me.

The only issue I've ever had with Amazon Prime on iPad is it taking a bit too long for the higher quality image to set in.

Yes, a master plan of infiltrating every single industry with 3rd-rate products and services that undercut superior competitors
