Backlash as viewing experience of people's favourite TV shows will suffer major change in February

Backlash as viewing experience of people's favourite TV shows will suffer major change in February

Better binge Reacher if you don't want to deal with this Amazon change

The new year is approaching and while you’re listing the 2024 resolutions you’re probably not going to keep, there’s something else you’ll need to prepare for.

Sure, you might be gearing up for a year-long saving challenge, but you might need that extra cash to keep watching your favourite TV shows.

Because the viewing experience on one platform is about to suffer a major change. And people are not happy about it.

Amazon Prime Video is the go-to site for binging episodes of The Boys, Jack Ryan and Reacher yet users are cancelling their subscriptions.

The streaming site are going to make a change at the beginning of February, meaning fans eagerly waiting on new seasons will be effected.

While there’s still no confirmed release date, we do know a season four of The Boys is set to arrive in 2024.

The new season will feature the same core cast and introduce two new supes; Firecracker and Sister Sage.

The Boys Season 4 plot synopsis reads: “The world is on the brink. Victoria Neuman is closer than ever to the Oval Office and under the muscly thumb of Homelander, who is consolidating his power.

"Butcher, with only months to live, has lost Becca’s son as well as his job as The Boys’ leader. The rest of the team are fed up with his lies. With the stakes higher than ever, they have to find a way to work together and save the world before it’s too late.”

While the first four episodes of Reacher season two have already dropped on Prime, the remaining four are rolling weekly starting tomorrow (29 December).

And as fans won’t get the season finale until 19 January, you’ll have to be quick to watch them if you don’t want to adapt to Amazon’s upcoming change.

But as Reacher Season 3 has already been confirmed, you’ve got a decision to make.

That’s because from 5 February, customers in UK and Germany will have to splash out an additional £2.99 a month to enjoy Prime Video shows without adverts.

Yep, Amazon has followed in the footsteps of Netflix and added an ad-supported tier.

It has claimed that this would ‘allow us to continue investing in compelling content and keep increasing that investment over a long period of time’.

The conglomerate said in an email to customers: "We aim to have meaningfully fewer ads than linear TV and other streaming TV providers.”

Viewers wrote online they would rather ‘cancel’ their subscriptions as they call ads ‘a deal breaker’.

One angrily wrote on X: “#AmazonPrimeVideo is now just another TV network since they’re adding commercials to all of their content. And people wonder why torrent sites are so popular? I can see ads for Trump all over Reacher and Jack Ryan. I can see Vivek sponsoring The Boys, FFS.”

Others simply gave the site a ‘f**k you’ as they said it’s ‘not sitting well in my mf spirit’.
