No, Netflix used to give you advance notice. They don't anymore. Though I haven't seen many TV series disappear. That sounds like a huge pain. They get you hooked on a series only to pull it down.

Looks like you need an individual prime membership. I share with a family member, but I only get the free 2 day shipping, the person who pays is the only one who gets the music streaming.

My family is able to share my Amazon Prime - if I recall right, you can authorize up to 7 computers and other devices. They do have to sign in under my account, which is probably the point you're making....

Amazon does give you an expiration notice on titles, but you have to either go to the actual video's page, or check your Watchlist.

No, you can add family members with their own amazon account to your account, you just add their e-mail address. If they are signing in under your account, then they can probably use the streaming....but they'd also have access to your plastic.


I can't use the streaming because I'm just an additional user.

I would be wary of that. I have prime, I've given friends and family access but they all can't get the free movies, for example. I think the service's gift features may only be for the free 2-day shipping on items.

I tested this out on my wife's gift account. She can't get prime movies but can buy anything she wants with free 2-day. Not sure this is accurate but sharing an observation.

In the past few months, I've started using Amazon Prime Music much more for listening to soundtracks. I have been quite astonished to find such a breadth of soundtracks available on the service. There are even some Varese, Intrada, and other labels', expanded/limited releases available there. I know it wasn't this way early on, but now I am finding a lot more titles... and some are day and date with their CD/digital release.

After seeing Wonder Woman last Thursday, I decided I wanted to go ahead and grab the soundtrack... I decided to wait until Friday morning (the release date for the CD) and there it was... available for 'free' on Amazon Prime Music.

I still purchased the CD (I'm still a collector after all)... but I'm wondering if anyone else has stopped their collecting or put off purchases knowing that they can simply listen to them there.

They may not be at the best bitrate, but it is convenient, especially, if you want to listen to that one track to 'scratch that itch'... whatever it may be.

Never! I do "sample" scores from streaming services, but I would never stop buying physical copies and rely on the whims of these companies. No telling if and when they will drop a score or a particular labels catolog all together. Or limit access and/or raise membership fees if they have them. I also like the ability to arrange and edit music to my liking. If I own a copy I'm in control my own listening experience.

Speaking for movies rather than scores, I've found in a couple of instances where a streaming service dropped a movie I liked would then go buy it. (King Kong 2005 is the most recent occurrence of this.)

I do this, though my streaming service of preference is Spotify (even though I'm an Amazon Prime member). But I still purchase way too many CDs (I'm not even gonna say how many in recent months, I'm so embarrassed).

What has changed for me is if I don't care all that much about a soundtrack (or whatever kind of album) that I can stream, I don't buy it. But for instance, I loved the movie Kong: Skull Island, so I bought the CD, even though I'd been streaming it for free. Doctor Strange was another. But there are other releases, from old Italian soundtracks to Person of Interest and The Flash, that I've been satisfied to listen to streaming only. So far anyway.

I have Apple Music (which my kids subscribe to, on a family plan). I will admit that there are albums I might have purchased a few years ago that, after a couple of listens on Apple Music, I've decided I don't really care to buy. Had I purchased those on CD a few years ago, I likely would have listened twice and then just put the CD away. (Or maybe sold it.) This is a nice cost savings for me, but not such hot news for the music industry.

No.. I don't entertain it.. not even for free.. I've all way's collected lp, cd, I'm not being ignorant I just don't want to get into this habit.

Its a good idea though.. people who've just started out collecting film scores, or a collector down-sizing a cd collection.. building it up in digital files.

I still buy CDs through Intrada, Kritzerland etc but if scores are available on download I go that route. I tend to buy best available quality, 16 bit FLAC or 320 kbps MP3........Quality is fine, I want to listen to the music in convenient form and accumulate less stuff. Staring at shelves of plastic cases is no big deal any more......
