    Shareholders too blinded by greed to realize that they're going to price themselves out of the market. They also don't seem to realize they don't have any original content worth the cost nor do they have a large enough prestige library of third party content.

      This is a core misunderstanding of corporate capitalism. When a gigacorp reaches its max potential and holds the biggest market it ever will, then there's nowhere to go but down. This will cause the business to collapse regardless, so the only move left is to gouge the market for as long as they can while knowingly crashing the plane faster. This can still net a profit for shareholders. Or, they simply let new bagholders buy in to take their place.
      Then they go to the other companies they're sitting on boards at and do it all over again. Literally no corporation aims to be eternal, the whole point is to cash out on its success repeatedly until it breaks.

    All of the quality programs that Amazon Prime produces cost a large amount of money to create. With inflation and economic issues making it a hassle to create memorable series, Amazon Prime needs these ads to continue to provide worthwhile series to its customers. If we need ads for more Rings of Power, Invincible, and Reacher, then sign me up!

    The greed of shareholders is literally unlimited. They are already the richest people in the world but they must have more.
    I'm an Objectivist, but honestly I cannot fathom why they are so fricking greedy. There should be a limiting principal. Reducing quality to a barely tolerable level to squeeze a few million more from your customer base is callous. Unfortunately it's unlikely anyone will cancel their Prime membership over this. I for one will not, but only because I primarily use it to avoid shipping fees (by paying an annual fee instead).

It's just a Rube Goldberg way of showing you that instead of a transparent pane of glass. This of course exposes the worse problem with this stupid system: store inventory is so inaccurate due to theft that you can open the door and find the shelves completely empty because none of the drinks were ever sold.

    >the streaming service that people literally only use because it comes packaged with their free shipping is going to start charging to remove ads
    Lmao this is gonna do wonders for their view numbers.

    I am having a good time watching these companies get increasingly desperate to wring blood from a stone as they realize the line can't go up forever and streaming just turns into a shittier version of cable.

    Piracy is apparently back on the rise as well lol.

    Once they started adding skipable ads, I deleted my amazon account and lost $2k+ in film / series collection

    I cancelled Prime the day they sent out the announcement mail (early January).

    I do not pay for ad-infested TV. An additional surcharge to make it ad-free again is not okay.
    Increase the base-fee, if it doesn't work out otherwise, but this way: Go fricking die, Amazon.
    You can cancel Prime as well: They have started hiding the option a little harder than before, but at least you still get a full refund for the rest of the year.

    I think the only solution is to start a permanent war on advertisers and marketing companies, hunting them down and ending them.

    They lured in the boomer audience with Reacher, now they add ads to give them the full TV experience.

    Amazon never makes any profit despite being a massive company
