I haven't seen the original series available on any streaming service. Amazon and Netflix both have bits and pieces (maybe 10-20 serials altogether) and I'm not sure what Apple has on iTunes, but I doubt it's much more complete. Personally I'd rather just buy a DVD when I can afford it, though, because the BBC loads them up with a ton of special features, including commentary tracks, subtitle info tracks, Radio Times listings, scripts, new documentaries commissioned for those releases as well as rare appearances by Doctors on other shows and archival interviews.
Skyrim made me late for work today. Stupid labyrinthine Dwemer ruins!
I haven't seen a full roster of Classic Who anywhere either. But that's kind of my point -- if I'm going to buy Prime for streaming, it needs to offer me something that the competition can't.
I buy the full-season Blu-Rays of New Who, because my wife loves it and we enjoy the extras. But she's never gotten into the original run, and I can't justify paying The Beeb's ridiculous prices for individual DVD episodes. (Over $24 for Inferno? That price should get me the entire season. Seriously, BBC, just no.)
I watched Spearhead from Space (the first Jon Pertwee serial) via Netflix a couple weeks ago, and the wibbly-wobbly-oldy-timey bug has bitten me. I want more, but not at highway-robbery prices. So if Tony tells the Prime crew to go get an exclusive streaming license for Classic Who, I'll bite. Immediately.
Nope, they are all there. The Tennant Christmas specials are the first episode of the following season, the end specials are their own category and the Matt Smith Christmas specials are their own category for some reason.
Thanks for the correction. I was comparing "Prime seasons" with "Physical media seasons", and a lot of stuff is in different places.
Wow on Lego Marvel at $11.99. But then again the others did drop fast too.
We have money set aside in the steam wallet from trading cards to get it at the steam sale (did not see it on flash/daily deal in autumn) but for $12 from amazon... wow.
Hooray, I get to post something on-topic!
I bought a physical copy of Lego LOTR a year ago at launch, so I could put it under the Christmas tree. By the time it got unwrapped, I'd already bought a second copy at $7.50 for my own Steam account, thanks to the Amazon Holiday Sale. I held off on Lego Marvel at launch this year, hoping for another great holiday price. (Now, if I can just get confirmation that this price will be repeated in the EC...)
Some search features on amazon need work, i find better links in this thread than on the actual site, it is strange.
If you go to Amazon's website to buy a specific item (where you already know the product name or enough details to nail it in a search), then Amazon is a fantastic resource. But if you're not sure how to describe what you want, or if you just want to browse, the UI becomes an obstacle instead of an aid. Targeted search great, fuzzy search not so much.
