Early Years on Amazon Prime UK

Recommended Posts

Long time lurker but didn't see this posted anywhere...

In a very unexpected move, the entire 1988 season has been uploaded to Amazon Prime today. I don't know if that paves the way for future seasons but it would definitely seem promising.

That's fair enough. The UK are ridiculously long overdue for a repeat run of H&A, and have been let down for far too long. I agree. All episodes should be available EVERYWHERE. No geo-blocking, no more mucking around

Still hoping for 1996-1999 one day :(

It's a great surprise I must admit!  The UK hasn't had a decent re-run of classic episodes for quite a while. 

To be honest, I think this is the way to go rather than re-runs on linear television.  You can watch at your own pace, and you're not dependent on keeping them available on your PVR.  Streaming is only going to get bigger (I wonder how many people watch the show on Channel 7 and Channel 5's players rather than the broadcast now?)

In fact I can't remember the last time I watched something as it was broadcast that wasn't live - we are becoming our own schedulers.

PLUS7's selection is still very limited. Only 8 episodes from the 1988-96 period plus very few more between then and now, seem to be available there, all under BDM

I'm really surprised we haven't heard the thoughts, opinions or speculation of any bttb staff on this, considering it's quite a groundbreaking new thing for H&A. You'd think it would be a ripe topic for discussion in an area of the forum where any new updates have been dead for a long time.
