    I think I saw the box of it in the smelly section in the back once. Not my cup of tea, judging from the pictures on the back...

    I feel it was inevitable that Prime would loose this benefit. The fact that amazon vowed to increase revenue from Advertising means that we have to see a spike in advertising and a fast way for them was always to decouple Turbo from Prime.

    I dont mind watching adverts on content be it streams or youtube i am not crazy to think they can make content for free... My only gripe is when you hop channels and you get the same advert over and over again... or Youtube gives you a 23 minuet advert for a 10 minuet video .... nope not watching that!

    Why watch a stream though... well its a social thing. i tend to have streams on when i am going about other things such as working on the PC or cooking. its sort of like having a TV show on or music just with a bit of social thrown in.
