Move over, Tom Cruise. A new Jack Reacher reaches out in the trailer for an Amazon Prime Video series based on Lee Child's best-selling action thriller novels.

In this TV version, Alan Ritchson plays the ass-kicking literary hero. Appearing in 26 books, Reacher is a decorated former military policeman who roams the US looking for trouble. The debut season is based on the first book in the series, Killing Floor, in which Reacher tackles a conspiracy in a small town. 

Entertain your brain with the coolest news from streaming to superheroes, memes to video games.

All eight episodes are set to premiere on Prime Video on Feb. 4, 2022.

Tom Cruise played Reacher in two movies, in 2012 and 2016, but he drew criticism from fans of the books for being a fraction of the size of the 6-foot-5-inch, 250-pound character described by Child. Ritchson, who previously starred as superheroes Aquaman in Smallville and Hawk in Titans, is clearly much closer to the man-mountain of the books, popping zip ties, taking on all comers in a prison brawl, and giving XXL T-shirts a run for their money.

What’s new on Netflix and other streamers this weekend

We’ve been warning you all for the past few weeks, but Christmas has well and truly arrived on streamers in 2021. This weekend will see several new festive movies and TV shows landing on the likes of Netflix, HBO Max and Prime Video – but we’ve made a conscious effort to also highlight those that aren’t designed to extract every last ounce of joy from your wintery bones.

Alongside the latest holiday adventures, you can expect to enjoy Jane Campion’s awards-touted The Power of the Dog and the second part of Money Heist’s fifth and final season over the next few days – both of which are now available to stream on Netflix. 

There’s plenty more great content to dig into, though, and below you’ll find our pick of the best new movies and TV shows worth paying attention to this weekend.

Money Heist season 5 part 2 (Netflix)

Money Heist (or La Casa De Papel, if we’re being specific) returns to Netflix for the second part of its fifth and final season this weekend to bid farewell to Spain’s most famous crew of bank robbers. 

Speaking ahead of part one’s release earlier in the year, the show’s creator, Álex Pina, said part 2 will “focus more on the emotional situation of the characters” and act as “a journey across their sentimental map that connects us directly to their departure.” 

As such, we're assuming new episodes will contain more tears than tear gas, though being Money Heist, we’re not ruling out further explosive set-pieces, shouty soldiers and shocking deaths.

Now available to stream on Netflix

The Power of the Dog (Netflix)

It’s safe to say that Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog has been the critical hit of the year so far – and with just a few weeks to go until 2022, it wouldn’t be premature to describe this one as the best movie of 2021.

Widely praised for its slow-burning psychological drama, The Power of the Dog follows the story of a menacing rancher (Benedict Cumberbatch) who doesn’t take kindly to the arrival of his brother’s new wife (Kirsten Dunst) and her son (Kodi Smit-McPhee).

To say more would hinder the film’s suspense, but just know that it’s being touted as one of the best Netflix movies to date. It helps, too, that Cumberbatch gives a career-best performance as the volatile Phil Burbank in this one – which should make interesting prep for next year’s Doctor Strange 2.

Now available to stream on Netflix

Harlem (Prime Video) 

From the mind of Girls Trip creator Tracy Oliver comes Harlem, Prime Video’s latest comedy series following the misadventures of a group of stylish and ambitious girlfriends in the eponymous New York City neighbourhood.

Megan Good, Grace Byers, Shoniqua Shandai, Jerrie Johnson and Tyler LePley star alongside guests like Whoopi Goldberg and Andrea Martin in this 10-episode first season, which looks set to reinvent the Sex and the City formula in interesting ways. 

What’s more, as part of Harlem’s premiere, Prime Video has made a concerted effort to promote Black female entrepreneurs based in Harlem and other neighboring New York City communities, so keep your eyes peeled for references to real-life businesses throughout.

Now available to stream on Amazon Prime Video

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 15 (Hulu)  

The It’s Always Sunny crew return to Hulu for season 15 of the hit show this week to make it the longest-running live-action comedy series in American television history (hurdling the 1960s show The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet).

This time around, The Gang stands at a crossroads in the wake of everything that went awry in 2020 – so expect the likes of Covid-19, Trump and the Epstein scandal to play a lead role in the ensuing mayhem.

The usual suspects return, with Mac (Rob McElhenney), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Dee (Kaitlin Olson) and Frank (Danny DeVito) primed to deliver more of the show’s trademark – and extremely popular – brand of humor. 

Now available to stream on Hulu in the US

Santa Inc (HBO Max) 

Sticking with the comedy theme, Santa Inc lands on HBO Max to subvert everything you thought you knew about innocent animated Christmas adventures. In this stop-motion series, Sarah Silverman stars as a foul-mouthed elf who hopes to someday become the first female Santa Claus.

Seth Rogen offers his distinctive voice as the big man himself, while the likes of Maria Bamford, Nicholas Braun, Craig Robinson, Gabourey Sidibe and Leslie Grossman also feature in this eight-episode debut season.

Santa Inc comes from the creators of Sausage Party, so if deliberately controversial gags are your calling, this one is an easy recommendation.

Now available to stream on HBO Max

Alex Rider season 2 (Prime Video) 

Those that watched the debut season of Alex Rider will know that the Sony-produced spy show was something of a sleeper hit in 2020. Based on the best-selling novel series by Anthony Horowitz, it followed the book one adventures of the eponymous British teenager.

It’s no surprise, then, that season 2 dramatizes the events of Horowitz’s second book in the series, Eagle Strike, which sees Alex do battle against a megalomaniac intent on using nuclear weapons to destroy the drug-making countries of the world.

If that all sounds a bit silly, that’s because it is, but Alex Rider will undoubtedly prove an enjoyable, care-free watch to anyone looking to scratch a James Bond-sized itch. Season 2 is available to stream on Prime Video now via the free IMDB TV channel.

Now available to stream on Prime Video (via IMDB TV)

Single All the Way (Netflix) 

It wouldn’t be a December streaming roundup without the inclusion of a bona fide Christmas movie, and Single All the Way looks to have more than a few festive feels up its sleeve.

In this Netflix original, frustrated singleton Peter (Michael Urie) convinces his best friend Nick (Philemon Chambers) to join him for the holidays and pretend the pair are in a relationship. Why, you ask? It’s all an elaborate ruse to avoid his family’s judgement towards his solitary status.

Now, we’re not saying Single All the Way will turn out to be the most intellectually stimulating film of all time, but if you’re after a heartfelt – and maybe slightly trashy – Christmas movie this December, look no further than Netflix’s latest effort.

Bug fixes and performance improvements

Ratings and Reviews

Good, but flawed

I love the prime video app overall. For the most part it remembers where you left off on shows from device to device. I can save my favorites, and it recommends shows for me.
The first flaw that bugs me, if I pause the movie with around 5 minutes left, and come back to it after the screen shuts off, it always skips to the next episode and cuts off my last few minutes. This happens on my Galaxy, Firestick and iPad, so I know it’s not my device . Drives me crazy.
Next flaw is I can’t clear my watch history on just one show. I’m rewatching some shows and lose my place because it shows that I’ve seen all the episodes. I don’t want to clear my entire watch history, then I’ll lose my place in current shows. I wish this was a feature. If this feature exists, I haven’t seen anywhere to click to make this happen.
Other than these two complaints, I enjoy prime video very much!

Good enough but not great!

I find the layout of the movies a bit awkward. I wish for example when I want to look at my watchlist it would show thumbnails on the entire page of nothing but my watchlist. Same with the different categories of watch next or any other category of movies. I hate swiping from right to left to have to go through a bunch of movies to find the movie I am looking for. Good enough of selection of movies, never enough. Like to see more foreign films and independent films.

Also would like to see them get rid of the ludicrous restriction of the prohibition against watching videos outside the country. Why do they care if I watch it in Utah or if I watch it in Japan? I have paid to watch the film. They certainly should be able to work around this legal technicality which is absurd! That’s when I want to watch my movies the most, when I’m outside the country.

Also I think they charge for way too many series and films when I am a Prime member. They vast majority should be free.

good selection but poor app experience

i thoroughly enjoy the selection of tv shows and movies prime video brings. add ons, especially the HBO add on just heightens my experience. despite this, the developers have plenty of work to do with the app itself. it works just fine on the tv but the app is another story. often when i start a new episode the pause screen remains while the video continues to play in the background. i try to tap to make it go away and nothing happens. i try to tap anywhere to make it do anything like press back to return the home page or press pause and nothing works. i even exit the app and close the tab and the audio continues to play in the background. even turning off my phone it continues to play for several moments after. at first i thought it was just my ipad since it was an older model and has a history of issues but i continuously had the same issues on my iphone. not the end of the world but certainly annoying

How to watch Spurs vs Brentford on Amazon Prime Video – stream details here

How to watch Spurs vs Brentford in the Premier League: How to access the Amazon Prime Video live stream for Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford.

It’s been a really busy week in the Premier League with a full line-up of midweek fixtures, all of which are live on Amazon Prime. While there has been quite a lot of grumbling about needing to sign up for yet another subscription service beyond Sky Sports and BT Sport, but it is nice being able to pick and choose which games you want to watch.

There are two options tonight. There’s Arsenal vs Manchester United and Tottenham vs Brentford. We’re focusing on the latter as Spurs look to continue their progress start under new boss Antonio Conte.

The Italian led his new side to a come-from-behind win against Leeds last time out and, after the weekend’s postponed game at Burnley, welcome fellow Londoners Brentford to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Brentford flew out of the traps in the first ever Premier League season and sit 11th having notched four wins and four draws in their first 13 games in the top flight. Frontman Ivan Toney will lead the line once again in what promises to be a entertaining London derby on Thursday night.

Spurs vs Brentford kick-off time

Spurs vs Brentford kicks off at 7:30pm UK time on Thursday December 2. Spurs are back at home at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, so will fancy their chances of getting another win on the board, despite Harry Kane’s recent goalscoring struggles.

How to watch Spurs vs Brentford

As we mentioned above Amazon Prime Video is only way to watch tonight’s game live. Amazon has the rights to a couple of rounds of fixtures over the festive season and all of the mid-week fixtures are available to watch on Prime Video.

You will need an active Amazon Prime subscription in order to tune into the game via all of the major mobile and smart TV apps, while you can also watch on the Amazon Prime Video website.

If you’re yet to sign up for Amazon Prime, or have let your subscription lapse over the last few months, you can sign-up here. It costs £79.99 a year or £7.99 a month.

If you’re lucky Amazon may offer you a 30 day Amazon Prime trial, but that’s unlikely to be available to all previous account holders. New account holders automatically get a free Amazon Prime Video trial for one month so you’ll get this game for free.

Watch safely with a VPN

When you’re watching content online, it’s a good idea to boost your privacy by using a VPN to mask your IP address from would-be wrongdoers. You can read our guide to the best VPNs before streaming Premier League games

Editors’ Notes

You need toothpaste, golf clubs, and batteries—and you need them now. Known for its colossal shopping catalog, Amazon packs virtually all of the features and functions found on its website into this ample app, whether you’re buying gifts, tracking orders, or scanning items in a brick-and-mortar store for an online price comparison. It’s easy to navigate, intuitive, and extremely fast.

Subscribe and Save is a rip-off

This review isn’t about the app. The app is fine with me. This is about Amazon’s subscribe and save. I had many items on it and realized the item was cheaper if I had ordered it myself. I contacted custom service and was told to wait until I receive the item before they would give me the cheaper price. I’m figuring when I did receive it, the cheaper price would be gone and they wouldn’t refund or they count on a customer forgetting to contact them. I canceled my five year prime membership along with canceling all subscribe and saves. Prime has gotten to be a joke, too. I loved the music. Now they want to you pay MORE to hear up-to-date good music by subscribing to their music service. The only reason I had prime was for the shipping and the music. Now we’re down to one and I’ve been finding better pricing on items I buy elsewhere. Prime is no longer worth it for me. So disappointed.

Navigation changes every time, can’t order digital products, cart is deleted if card doesn’t work

This would be great if they didn’t keep moving things. For example, the subscription to reorder items every month keeps moving. Sometimes it’s in account and sometimes In the top menu sometimes under orders. Now I can’t find it at all. It’s ridiculous I have to go to my computer to change my subscription orders.

Also, they don’t allow you to purchase digital products on a mobile device even if you directly use the web! I’m rarely on a computer anymore, and a lot of people don’t own a computer, so we can’t order prime movies, audible books or even Kindle books without a computer. I often forget that I was going to purchase something or I see it in a regular store before I get around to turning on the computer to do an order. I’m sure that’s cost them at least 500/yr just from lost sales to me. There are bound to be thousands of people like me. Even if there are only 1000 people like me, that’s a half million a year in lost sales.

On top of that, when my credit card got hijacked and turned off, they deleted my order and didn’t even put the items back into the cart or into the Saved list or anything. I don’t remember what I ordered since it was a very large order. They need to put things back in the cart or into the Saved list when that happens so that people can easily repurchase them when they straighten out the problem with the credit card.

  Special to The Columbus Dispatch

On Sept. 15, Amazon Prime members will no longer be able to access HBO via the Prime Video Channels service, which provides, for an additional cost, content from a host of channels. (Each channel comes with a monthly charge above and beyond the $119 annual Amazon Prime membership fee.)

In an email to Amazon Prime members earlier this month, the tech giant announced that HBO had opted out of Prime Video Channels, which still offers a plethora of other movie-centric channels, among them Cinemax, Showtime, Starz and Hallmark Movies Now. 

The email said that Prime members who subscribed to HBO via Prime Video Channels would have their subscription canceled and, if any refund from the subscription is due, their account prorated automatically.

HBO’s departure from Prime Video Channels follows the unveiling in May 2020 of HBO’s own HBO Max streaming service, which is solely devoted to the channel’s own content. 

In a story posted on Bloomberg, the decision, which cost HBO about 5 million customers, was attributed to the company’s desire to connect with customers without intermediaries such as Amazon.

“It’s important for us to own the customer,” HBO Max general manager Andy Forssell told Bloomberg.

HBO Max is available for $9.99 (with ads) or $14.99 (without ads) per month. The streaming service can be viewed on TV, computer and gaming devices, including Amazon Fire TV and Tablet.

CNBC reported last November that HBO’s planned departure from Prime Video Channels was part of an agreement to make HBO Max accessible on Amazon Fire TV.

Bug fixes and performance improvements

Ratings and Reviews

Good, but flawed

I love the prime video app overall. For the most part it remembers where you left off on shows from device to device. I can save my favorites, and it recommends shows for me.
The first flaw that bugs me, if I pause the movie with around 5 minutes left, and come back to it after the screen shuts off, it always skips to the next episode and cuts off my last few minutes. This happens on my Galaxy, Firestick and iPad, so I know it’s not my device. Drives me crazy.
Next flaw is I can’t clear my watch history on just one show. I’m rewatching some shows and lose my place because it shows that I’ve seen all the episodes. I don’t want to clear my entire watch history, then I’ll lose my place in current shows. I wish this was a feature. If this feature exists, I haven’t seen anywhere to click to make this happen.
Other than these two complaints, I enjoy prime video very much!

Good enough but not great!

I find the layout of the movies a bit awkward. I wish for example when I want to look at my watchlist it would show thumbnails on the entire page of nothing but my watchlist. Same with the different categories of watch next or any other category of movies. I hate swiping from right to left to have to go through a bunch of movies to find the movie I am looking for. Good enough of selection of movies, never enough. Like to see more foreign films and independent films.

Also would like to see them get rid of the ludicrous restriction of the prohibition against watching videos outside the country. Why do they care if I watch it in Utah or if I watch it in Japan? I have paid to watch the film. They certainly should be able to work around this legal technicality which is absurd! That’s when I want to watch my movies the most, when I’m outside the country.

Also I think they charge for way too many series and films when I am a Prime member. They vast majority should be free.

good selection but poor app experience

i thoroughly enjoy the selection of tv shows and movies prime video brings. add ons, especially the HBO add on just heightens my experience. despite this, the developers have plenty of work to do with the app itself. it works just fine on the tv but the app is another story. often when i start a new episode the pause screen remains while the video continues to play in the background. i try to tap to make it go away and nothing happens. i try to tap anywhere to make it do anything like press back bank of america how to activate credit card return the home page or press pause and nothing works. i even exit the app and close the tab and the audio continues to play in the background. even turning off my phone it continues to play for several moments after. at first i thought it was just my ipad since it was an older model and has a history of issues but i continuously had the same issues on my iphone. not the end of the world but certainly annoying

When is Amazon Cyber Monday 2021? 

Officially Cyber Monday started on Monday, November 29. Amazon's Cyber Monday sale, however, kicked off early on Saturday, November 27. The retailer is now continuing its cyber deals through the end of this weekend.  

When does the Amazon Cyber Monday sale begin?

The Amazon Cyber Monday sale started on Saturday, November 27, shortly after the Amazon Black Friday sale ended on Friday, November 26. In some cases many of the Amazon Cyber Monday deals we've seen are similar to Black Friday markdowns, however, there have been a few new deals on top-tier products, too.

Once the Amazon Cyber Monday sale comes to an end, we expect to see discounts on select items throughout the holiday season—however, with shipping delays and stock shortages expected, we recommend shopping early to ensure you get all the holiday gifts on your list this year. 

When does Amazon's Cyber Monday sale end?

While Cyber Monday officially ended at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, November 29, there are still plenty of cyber deals available at Amazon. Historically, we've seen Amazon continue similar price drops in the days and weeks that follow Cyber Monday—sometimes dropping a few items even lower than their Black Friday tag. We'll continue to update this page as prices change throughout the week.

Amazon Black Friday vs Cyber Monday: which deals are better? 

Technically Amazon Cyber Monday deals rolled out as soon as Black Friday ended on November 26. As in years past, we saw significant overlap in Amazon Black Friday and Cyber Monday markdowns. Although the Cyber Monday savings are still around, be sure to keep a close eye on shipping times and stock shortages before placing any orders. Some items, like iPads, MacBooks and especially AirPods, often sell out or become back-ordered, meaning they may not ship until well after Christmas and the holiday season.

If you're still planning on shopping Amazon's extended Cyber Monday deals, be sure to secure an Amazon Prime membership to enjoy fast and free shipping, too.

Are Amazon Cyber Monday sales available online? 

Yes. Amazon Cyber Monday sales are exclusively available online. Most are available on the website, though you can also find some exclusive sales by asking Alexa on an Alexa-enabled WiFi speaker like the Echo Dot. Just ask Alexa for the latest deals to see what is being offered.

Will the Playstation 5 be on sale for Cyber Monday at Amazon?

Amazon had some PS5 consoles available on Saturday, November 27 at their normal retail price (the lowest price you can expect to see for a while) and has said that they may potentially return at various times throughout the week. PS5 deals sell out in mere minutes, so you'll need to just keep checking that link to see if you can get one. You'll also want to be a Prime Member—it could be your best shot of getting a PS5 this holiday season.

Will the iPad be on sale for Cyber Monday?

You can scoop up a 12.9-Inch 2021 2T Apple iPad Pro right now at Amazon for $2,049.99—$149.01 off the full $2,199 list price. If you order today, your new WiFi enabled smart tablet could arrive as early as next week. 

Meanwhile, you can pre-order 12.9-inch 2021 128GB iPad Pro and save $100 right now. Keep in mind, however, the 128GB model is expected to be in stock soon, so the expected delivery date is mid-January. Besides the iPad Pro deals, we haven't seen extensive discounts on iPads or non-Amazon tablets during Amazon's Cyber Monday sale

What are the best deals from the Amazon Cyber Monday 2021 sale? 

To date, we've seen massive Amazon Cyber Monday deals on air fryers, headphones, home goods and more—including tons of products from some of our favorite brands, like Apple, Zojirushi, Sony, Instant Pot, Bose, iRobot and Shark. Whether it's a new tablet with hours of battery life, a fitness tracker for monitoring your heart rate or some new headphones, Amazon pretty much has it all.

Every day Amazon adds even more sales to their lineup of Epic Daily Deals. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back frequently to scoop the hottest Amazon discounts on must-have items this holiday season.  

Does Amazon have special Cyber Monday deals for Amazon Prime members? 

Yes. During the holiday shopping season, Amazon Prime members have early access to select holiday deals and can even earn up to 25% back on select Amazon purchases with an Amazon Prime Card and an eligible Prime membership. Meanwhile, Prime members can get their holiday gifts quicker with access to free and fast shipping, with millions of must-have items available for same-day delivery. If you aren't already an Amazon Prime member, don't worry—you can always sign up.

Amazon has been criticized for practices including technological surveillance overreach,[25] a hyper-competitive and demanding work culture,[26]tax avoidance,[27] and anti-competitive behavior.[28][29]

History

Further information: History of Amazon

The company's largest campus outside the United States was inaugurated in Hyderabad, India in September 2019.

Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in July 1994, choosing Seattle because of technical talent as Microsoft is located there.[30]Mackenzie Scott played a big role in the founding of Amazon and drove across the country with Jeff to start it. After Scott graduated, she applied to work for D. E. Shaw & Co., a quantitative hedge fund in New York City, as a research associate to "pay the bills while working on her novels".[31][32] She was interviewed by Jeff Bezos, who was then a vice-president at the firm. The interview was her first meeting with him.[33][31]

In May 1997, Amazon went public. It began selling music and videos in 1998, at which time it began operations internationally by acquiring online sellers of books in United Kingdom and Germany. The following year, Amazon began selling items including video games, consumer electronics, home improvement items, software, games, and toys.

In 2002, Amazon launched Amazon Web Services (AWS), which provided data on website popularity, Internet traffic patterns and other statistics for marketers and developers. In 2006, Amazon grew its AWS portfolio when Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), which rents computer processing power as well as Simple Storage Service (S3), that rents data storage via the Internet, were made available. That same year, Amazon started Fulfillment by Amazon which managed the inventory of individuals and small companies selling their belongings through the company internet site. In 2012, Amazon bought Kiva Systems to automate its inventory-management business, purchasing Whole Foods Market supermarket chain five years later in 2017.[34]

On February 2, 2021, Amazon announced that Jeff Bezos would be stepping down as CEO and transition to Executive Chair of Amazon's board in Q3 of 2021. Andy Jassy, who is currently CEO of AWS, will succeed Bezos as CEO of the company.[35][36]

Board of directors

As of September 2020[update], the board of directors is:[37]

  • Jeff Bezos, Executive Chairman, Amazon.com, Inc.
  • Andy Jassy, President and CEO, Amazon.com, Inc.
  • Keith B. Alexander, CEO, IronNet Cybersecurity, former NSA Director
  • Rosalind Brewer, Group President, and COO, Starbucks
  • Jamie Gorelick, partner, Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr
  • Daniel P. Huttenlocher, Dean of the Schwarzman College of Computing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • Judy McGrath, former CEO, MTV Networks
  • Indra Nooyi, former CEO, PepsiCo
  • Jon Rubinstein, former chairman, and former CEO, Palm, Inc.
  • Thomas O. Ryder, former chairman, and former CEO, Reader's Digest Association
  • Patty Stonesifer, President, and CEO, Martha's Table
  • Wendell P. Weeks, chairman, President, and CEO, Corning Inc.

Merchant partnerships

In 2000, U.S. toy retailer Toys "R" Us entered into a 10-year agreement with Amazon, valued at $50 million per year plus a cut of sales, under which Toys "R" Us would be the exclusive supplier of toys and baby products on the service, and the chain's website would redirect to Amazon's Toys & Games category. In 2004, Toys "R" Us sued Amazon, claiming that because of a perceived lack of variety in Toys "R" Us stock, Amazon had knowingly allowed third-party sellers to offer items on the service in categories that Toys "R" Us had been granted exclusivity. In 2006, a court ruled in favor of Toys "R" Us, giving it the right to unwind its agreement with Amazon and establish its own independent e-commerce website. The company was later awarded $51 million in damages.[38][39][40]

In 2001, Amazon entered into a similar agreement with Borders Group, under which Amazon would comanage Borders.com as a co-branded service.[41] Borders pulled out of the arrangement in 2007, with plans to also launch its own online store.[42]

On October 18, 2011, Amazon.com announced a partnership with DC Comics for the exclusive digital rights to many popular comics, including Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, The Sandman, and Watchmen. The partnership has caused well-known bookstores like Barnes & Noble to remove these titles from their shelves.[43]

In November 2013, Amazon announced a partnership with the United States Postal Service to begin delivering orders on Sundays. The service, included in Amazon's standard shipping rates, initiated in metropolitan areas of Los Angeles and New York because of the high-volume and inability to deliver in a timely way, with plans to expand into Dallas, Houston, New Orleans and Phoenix by 2014.[44]

In June 2017, Nike agreed to sell products through Amazon in exchange for better policing of counterfeit goods.[45][46] This proved unsuccessful and Nike withdrew from the partnership in November 2019.[46][47] Companies including Ikea and Birkenstock also stopped selling through Amazon around the same time, citing similar frustrations over business practices and counterfeit goods.[48]

As of October 11, 2017[update], AmazonFresh sold a range of Booths branded products for home delivery in selected areas.[49]

In September 2017, Amazon ventured with one of its sellers JV Appario Retail owned by Patni Group which has recorded a total income of US$ 104.44 million (₹ 759 crore) in financial year 2017/2018.[50]

In November 2018, Amazon reached an agreement with Apple Inc. to sell selected products through the service, via the company and selected Apple Authorized Resellers. As a result of this partnership, only Apple Authorized Resellers may sell Apple products on Amazon effective January 4, 2019.[51][52]

Logistics

  • Amazon Prime Air is an experimental drone delivery service.

Amazon directly employs people to work at its warehouses, bulk distribution centers, staffed "Amazon Hub Locker+" locations, and delivery stations where drivers pick up packages. As of December 2020, it is not hiring delivery drivers as employees.[55]

Rakuten Intelligence estimated that in 2020 in the United States, the proportion of last-mile deliveries was 56% by Amazon's directly contracted services (mostly in urban areas), 30% by the United States Postal Service (mostly in rural areas), and 14% by UPS.[56] In April 2021, Amazon reported to investors it had increased its in-house delivery capacity by 50% in the last 12 months (which included the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States).[57]

Main article: Twitch (service)

Twitch is a live streaming platform for video, primarily oriented towards video gaming content. The service was first established as a spin-off of a general-interest streaming service known as Justin.tv. Its prominence was eclipsed by that of Twitch, and Justin.tv was eventually shut down by its parent company in August 2014 in order to focus exclusively on Twitch.[94] Later that month, Twitch was acquired by Amazon for $970 million.[95] Through Twitch, Amazon also owns Curse, Inc., an operator of video gaming communities and a provider of VoIP services for gaming.[96] Since the acquisition, Twitch began to sell games directly through the platform,[97] and began offering special features for Amazon Prime subscribers.[98]

The site's rapid growth had been boosted primarily by the prominence of major esports competitions on the service, leading GameSpot senior esports editor Rod Breslau to have described the service as "the ESPN of esports".[99] As of 2015[update], the service had over 1.5 million broadcasters and 100 million monthly viewers.[100]

On August 10, 2020, Amazon announced the rebranding of Twitch Prime, the live-streaming site, renaming it Prime Gaming in another attempt to crack the video game market after failing a big-budget game effort.

A computer that records the location of goods and maps out routes for pickers plays a key role: employees carry hand-held computers which communicate with the central computer and monitor their rate of progress. Some warehouses are partially automated with systems built by Amazon Robotics.

Reviews

See also: Criticism of Amazon § Amazon reviews

Amazon allows users to submit reviews to the web page of each product. Reviewers must rate the product on a rating scale from one to five stars. Amazon provides a badging option for reviewers which indicate the real name of the reviewer (based on confirmation of a credit card account) or which indicate that the reviewer is one of the top reviewers by popularity. As of December 16, 2020, Amazon removed the ability of sellers and customers to comment on product reviews and purged their websites of all posted product review comments. In an email to sellers Amazon gave its rationale for removing this feature: ". the comments feature on customer reviews was rarely used." The remaining review response options are to indicate whether the reader finds the review helpful or to report that www gottoteach com 5 a day language review answer key violates Amazon policies (abuse). If a review is given enough "helpful" hits, it appears on the front page of the product. In 2010, Amazon was reported as being the largest single source of Internet consumer reviews.[118]

When publishers asked Bezos why Amazon would publish negative reviews, he defended the practice by claiming that Amazon.com was "taking a different approach . we want to make every book available—the good, the bad and the ugly . to let truth loose".[119]

There have been cases of positive reviews being written and posted by public relations companies on behalf of their clients[120] and instances of writers using pseudonyms to leave negative reviews of their rivals' works.

Content search

"Search Inside the Book" is a feature which allows customers to search for keywords in the full text of many books in the catalog.[121][122] The feature started with 120,000 titles (or 33 million pages of text) on October 23, 2003.[123]

Third-party sellers

Amazon derives many of its sales (around 40% in 2008) from third-party sellers who sell products on Amazon.[124] Associates receive a commission for referring customers to Amazon by placing links to Amazon on their websites if the referral results in a sale. Worldwide, Amazon has "over 900,000 members" in its affiliate programs.[125] In the middle of 2014, the Amazon Affiliate Program is used by 1.2% of all websites and it is the second most popular advertising network after Google Ads.[126] It is frequently used by websites and non-profits to provide a way for supporters to earn them a commission.[127]

Associates can access the Amazon catalog directly on their websites by using the Amazon Web Services (AWS) XML service. A new affiliate product, aStore, allows Associates to embed a subset of Amazon products within another website, or linked to another website. In June 2010, Amazon Seller Product Suggestions was launched (rumored to be internally called "Project Genesis") to provide more transparency to sellers by recommending specific products to third-party sellers to sell on Amazon. Products suggested are based on customers' browsing history.[128] In 2019, Amazon launched a bigger local online store in Singapore to expand its product selection in the face of intensifying competition with competitors in the region.[129]

In July 2019, the 3rd U.S. City Court of Appeals in Philadelphia ruled that Amazon can be held accountable for faulty third-party sales.[130] The decision ran counter to a past lower court ruling that had favored Amazon. Heather Oberdorf had sued the company in 2016 over a dog leash that snapped, causing permanent loss of vision in one eye. If upheld, the decision would expose Amazon and similar platform businesses to strict liability lawsuits for defective products, which represents a major change in the law.[131] The panel sent the case back to the lower court, to decide whether the leash was actually defective.[132]

Amazon sales rank

The Amazon sales rank (ASR) provides an indication of the popularity of a product sold on any Amazon locale. It is a relative indicator of popularity that is updated hourly. Effectively, it is a "best sellers list" for the millions of products stocked by Amazon.[133] While the ASR has no direct effect on the sales of a product, it is used by Amazon to determine which products to include in its bestsellers lists.[133] Products that appear in these lists enjoy additional exposure on the Amazon website and this may lead to an increase in sales. In particular, products that experience large jumps (up or down) in their sales ranks may be included within Amazon's lists of "movers and shakers"; such a listing provides additional exposure that might lead to an increase in sales.[134] For competitive reasons, Amazon does not release actual sales figures to the public. However, Amazon has now begun to release point of sale data via the Nielsen BookScan service to verified authors.[135] While the ASR has been the source of much speculation by publishers, manufacturers, and marketers, Amazon itself does not release the details of its sales rank calculation algorithm. Some companies have analyzed Amazon sales data to generate sales estimates based on the ASR,[136] though Amazon states:

Please keep in mind that our sales rank figures are simply meant to be a guide of general interest for the customer and not definitive sales information for publishers—we assume you have this information regularly from your distribution sources

— Amazon.com Help[137]

Multi-level sales strategy

Amazon employs a multi-level e-commerce strategy. Amazon started by focusing on business-to-consumer relationships between itself and its customers and business-to-business relationships between itself and its suppliers and then moved to facilitate customer-to-customer with the Amazon marketplace which acts as an intermediary to facilitate transactions. The company lets anyone sell nearly anything using its platform. In addition to an affiliate program that lets anyone post Amazon links and earn a commission on click-through sales, there is now a program which lets those affiliates build entire websites based on Amazon's platform.[138]

Some other large e-commerce sellers use Amazon to sell their products in addition to selling them through their own websites. The sales are processed through Amazon.com and end up at individual sellers for processing and order fulfillment and Amazon leases space for td canada trust easy login retailers. Small sellers of used and new goods go to Amazon Marketplace to offer goods at a fixed price.[139]

In November 2015, Amazon opened a physical Amazon Books store in University Village in Seattle. The store is 5,500 square feet and prices for all products match those on its website.[140] Amazon will open its tenth physical book store in 2017;[141] media speculation suggests Amazon plans to eventually roll out 300 to 400 bookstores around the how to find a ups account number June 2018, it was reported that Amazon planned to open brick and mortar bookstores in Germany.[142]

In September 2020, Amazon launched Luxury Stores on its mobile app, where Oscar de la Renta become the first and only label to partner with the firm.[143]

Finances

Amazon.com is primarily a retail site with a sales revenue model; Amazon takes a small percentage of the sale price of each item that is sold through its website while also allowing companies to advertise their products by paying to be listed as featured products.[144] As of 2018[update], Amazon.com is ranked 8th on the Fortune 500 rankings of the largest United States corporations by total revenue.[145]

For the fiscal year 2018, Amazon reported earnings of US$10.07 billion, with an annual revenue of US$232.887 billion, an increase of 30.9% over the previous fiscal cycle. Since 2007 sales increased from 14.835 billion to 232.887 billion, thanks to continued business expansion.[146]

Amazon's market capitalization went over US$1 trillion again in early February 2020 after the announcement of the fourth quarter 2019 results.[147]

Controversies

Since its founding, the company has attracted criticism and controversy for its actions, including: supplying law enforcement with facial recognition surveillance tools;[163] forming cloud computing partnerships with the CIA;[164] leading customers away from bookshops;[165] adversely impacting the environment;[166] placing a low priority on warehouse conditions for workers; actively opposing unionization efforts;[167] remotely deleting content purchased by Amazon Kindle users; taking public subsidies; seeking to patent its 1-Click technology; engaging in anti-competitive actions and price discrimination;[28][29] and reclassifying LGBT books as adult content.[168][169] Criticism has also concerned various decisions over whether to censor or publish content such as the WikiLeaks website, works containing libel and material facilitating dogfight, cockfight, or pedophile activities. In December 2011, Amazon faced a backlash from small businesses for running a one-day deal to promote its new Price Check app. Shoppers who used the app to check prices in a brick-and-mortar store were offered a 5% discount to purchase the same item from Amazon.[170] Companies like Groupon, eBay and Taap.it countered Amazon's promotion by offering $10 off from their products.[171][172]

The company has also faced accusations of putting undue pressure on suppliers to maintain and extend its profitability. One effort to squeeze the most vulnerable book publishers was known within the company as the Gazelle Project, after Bezos suggested, according to Brad Stone, "that Amazon should approach these small publishers the way a cheetah would pursue a sickly gazelle."[114] In July 2014, the Federal Trade Commission launched a lawsuit against the company alleging it was promoting in-app purchases to children, which were being transacted without parental consent.[173] In 2019, Amazon banned selling skin-lightening and racist products that might affect the consumer's health.[174]

Environmental impact

In 2018, Amazon emitted 44.4 million metric tons of CO2.[175]

In November 2018, a community action group opposed the construction permit delivered to Goodman Group for the construction of a 160,000 square metres (1,700,000 sq ft) logistics platform Amazon will operate at Lyon–Saint-Exupéry Airport. In February 2019, Étienne Tête filed a request on behalf of a second regional community action group asking the administrative court to decide whether the platform served a sufficiently important public interest to justify its environmental impact. Construction has been suspended while these matters are decided.[166]

In September 2019, Amazon workers organized a walk-out as part of the Global Climate Strike.[176][177] An internal group called Amazon Employees for Climate Justice said over 1,800 employees in 25 cities and 14 countries committed to participating in the action to protest Amazon's environmental impact and inaction to climate change.[176] This group of workers petitioned Jeff Bezos and Amazon with three specific demands: to stop donating to politicians and lobbyists that deny climate change, to stop working with fossil fuel companies to accelerate oil and gas extraction, and to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2030.[178][177]

Amazon has introduced the Shipment Zero program, however Shipment Zero has only committed to reducing 50% of its shipments to net zero by 2030. Also, even that best business bank accounts for llc does not necessarily mean a decrease in emissions compared to current levels given Amazon's rate of growth in orders.[179]

That said, Amazon's CEO has also signed the Climate Pledge, in which Amazon would meet the Paris climate agreement goals 10 years ahead of schedule, and would be carbon-neutral by 2040. Besides this pledge, it also ordered 100 000 electric delivery trucks from Rivian.[180] In September 2021, signatories of Amazon Environmental Pledge reached 200. [181] According to the report, signatories of pledge are from 16 countries, 25 industries. [182]

Amazon funds both climate denial groups including the Competitive Enterprise Institute and politicians denying climate change including Jim Inhofe.[183][184]

Amazon considered making an option for Prime customers to have packages delivered at the most efficient and environmentally-friendly time (allowing what is a good working capital company to combine shipments with the same destination) but decided against it out of fear customers might reduce purchases.[185] Since 2019, the company has instead offered customers an "Amazon Day" option, where all orders are delivered on the same day, emphasizing customer convenience, and it occasionally offers Prime customers credits in return for selecting slower and less expensive shipping options.[185]

The Solimo Strategy

In October 2021, based on several leaked internal documents, Reuters reported[186] that Amazon systematically harvested and studied data about their sellers' products' market performance, and used those data to identify lucrative markets and ultimately launch Amazon's own replacement products in India. The data included information about returns, the sizing of clothing down to the neck circumference and sleeve length, and the volume of product views on their website. Rivals' market performance data are not available to Amazon's sellers. The strategy also involved tweaking the search results to favor Amazon's own knock-off products. The Solimo Strategy's impact had a reach well beyond India: hundreds of Solimo branded household items, from multivitamins to coffee pods, are available in the US. One of the victims of the Solimo Strategy is the clothing brand John Miller, owned by India's 'retail king' Kishore Biyani.

Selling counterfeit, unsafe and discarded items

The selling of counterfeit the skeleton key in hindi download by Amazon has attracted widespread notice, with both purchases marked as being fulfilled by third parties and those shipped directly from Amazon warehouses being found to be counterfeit. This has included some products sold directly by Amazon itself and marked as "ships from and sold by Amazon.com".[187] Counterfeit charging cables sold on Amazon as purported Apple products have been found to be a fire hazard.[188][189] Such counterfeits have included a wide array of products, from big ticket items to every day items such as tweezers, gloves,[190] and umbrellas.[191] More recently, this has spread to Amazon's newer grocery services.[192] Counterfeiting was reported to be especially a problem for artists and small businesses whose products were being rapidly copied for sale on the site.[193]

One Amazon business practice that encourages counterfeiting is that, by default, seller accounts on Bge pay bill speedpay are set to use "commingled inventory". With this practice, the goods that a seller sends to Amazon are mixed with those of the producer of the product and with those of all other sellers that supply what is supposed to be the same product.[194]

In June 2019, Buzzfeed reported that some products identified on the site as "Amazon's choice" were low quality, had a history of customer complaints, and exhibited evidence of product review manipulation.[195]

In August 2019, The Wall Street Journal reported that they had found more than 4,000 items for sale on Amazon's site that had been declared unsafe by federal agencies, had misleading labels, or had been banned by federal regulators.[196]

In the wake of the WSJ investigation, three U.S. senators – Richard Blumenthal, Ed Markey, and Bob Menendez – sent an open letter to Jeff Bezos demanding him to take action about the selling of unsafe items on the site. The letter said that "Unquestionably, Amazon is falling short of its commitment to keeping safe those consumers who use its massive platform."[197] The letter included a number of questions about the company's practices and gave Bezos a deadline to respond by September 29, 2019, saying "We call on you to immediately remove from the platform all the problematic products examined in the recent WSJ report; explain how you are going about this process; conduct a sweeping internal investigation of your enforcement and consumer safety policies; and institute changes that will continue to keep unsafe products off your platform."[197] Earlier in the same month, senators Blumenthal and Menendez had sent Bezos a letter about the Buzzfeed report.[197]

In December 2019, The Wall Street Journal reported that some people were literally retrieving trash out of dumpsters and selling it as new products on Amazon. The reporters ran an experiment and determined that it was easy for a seller to set up an account and sell cleaned up junk as new products. In addition to trash, sellers were obtaining inventory from clearance bins, thrift stores, and pawn shops.[198][199]

In August 2020, an appeals court in California ruled that Amazon can be held liable for unsafe products sold on its website. A Californian had bought a replacement laptop battery that caught fire and caused her to receive third-degree burns.[200]

Rigged search results

Reuters has reported[186] that Amazon has rigged its product search results to favor its own brand in India. According to the article, leaked internal strategy documents show that Amazon has systematically manipulated its search results such that Amazon's own brand products appear in the first three search results, leading customers to purchase those instead of other sellers' products on the platform. The company employed two tactics: search seeding and search sparkles. By search seeding Amazon boosted the rankings of its own branded goods. By search sparkles the company inserted promotions of their own brands into broad category searches.

Tax avoidance

Main article: Amazon tax

Amazon's tax affairs were investigated in China, Germany, Poland, South Korea, France, Japan, Ireland, Singapore, Luxembourg, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, United States and Portugal.[201] According to a report released by Fair Tax Mark in 2019, Amazon is the worst offender of tax avoidance, having paid a 12% effective tax rate between 2010 and 2018, in contrast with 35% corporate tax rate in the US during the same period. Amazon countered that it had an 24% effective tax rate during the same period.[202]

Comments by Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders

In early 2018, President Donald Trump repeatedly criticized Amazon's use of the United States Postal Service and its prices for the delivery of packages, stating, "I am right about Amazon costing the United States Post Office massive amounts of money for being their Delivery Boy," Trump tweeted. "Amazon should pay these costs (plus) and not have them bourne [sic] by the American Taxpayer."[203] Amazon's shares fell by 6 percent as a result of Trump's comments. Shepard Smith of Fox News disputed Trump's claims and pointed to evidence that the USPS was offering below-market prices to all customers with no advantage to Amazon. However, analyst Tom Forte pointed to the fact that Amazon's payments to the USPS are not made public and that their contract has a reputation for being "a sweetheart deal".[204][205]

Throughout the summer of 2018, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders criticized Amazon's wages and working conditions in a series of YouTube videos and media appearances. He also pointed to the fact that Amazon had paid no federal income tax in the previous year.[206] Sanders solicited stories from Amazon warehouse workers who felt exploited by the company.[207] One amazon amazon com story, by James Bloodworth, described the environment as akin to "a low-security prison" and stated that the company's culture used an Orwellian newspeak.[208] These reports cited a finding by New Food Economy that one third of fulfilment center workers in Arizona were on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).[209] Responses by Amazon included incentives for employees to tweet positive stories and a statement which called the salary figures used by Sanders "inaccurate and misleading". The statement also charged that it was inappropriate for him to refer to SNAP as "food stamps".[207] On September 5, 2018, Amazon amazon com along with Ro Khanna introduced the Stop Bad Employers by Zeroing Out Subsidies (Stop BEZOS) Act aimed at Amazon and other alleged beneficiaries of corporate welfare such as Walmart, McDonald's and Uber.[210] Among the bill's supporters were Tucker Carlson of Fox News and Matt Taibbi who criticized himself and other journalists for not covering Amazon's contribution to wealth inequality earlier.[211][212]

On October 2, 2018, Amazon announced that its minimum wage for all American employees would be raised to $15 per hour. Sanders congratulated the company for making this decision.[213]

Opposition to trade unions

Main article: Amazon worker organization

A sticker expressing an anti-Amazon message is pictured on the discover online banking bonus of a street sign in Seattle.

Amazon has opposed efforts by trade unions to organize in both the United States and the United Kingdom. In 2001, 850 employees in Seattle were laid off by Amazon.com after a unionization drive. The Washington Alliance of Technological Workers (WashTech) accused the company of violating union laws, and claimed Amazon managers subjected them to intimidation and heavy propaganda. Amazon denied any link between the unionization effort and layoffs.[214] Also in 2001, Amazon.co.uk hired a US management consultancy organization, The Burke Group, to assist in defeating a campaign by the Graphical, Paper and Media Union (GPMU, now part of Unite the Union) to achieve recognition in the Milton Keynes distribution depot. It was alleged that the company victimized or sacked four union members during the 2001 recognition drive and held a series of captive meetings with employees.[215]

An Amazon training video that was leaked in 2018 stated "We are not anti-union, but we are not neutral either. We do not believe unions are in the best interest of our customers or shareholders or most importantly, our associates."[216] Two years later, it was found that Whole Foods was using a heat map to track which stores had the highest levels of pro-union sentiment. Factors including racial diversity, proximity to other unions, poverty levels in the surrounding community and calls to the National Labor Relations Board were named as contributors to "unionization risk".[217]

In early 2020, an Amazon internal documents were leaked, it said that Whole Foods has been using an interactive heat map to monitor its 510 locations across the U.S. and assign each store a unionization risk score based on such criteria as employee loyalty, turnover rate and racial diversity. Data collected in the heat map suggest that stores with low racial and ethnic diversity, especially those located in poor communities, are more likely to unionize.[218][219]

National Labor Relations Board determined that Amazon illegally fired two employees in retaliation for efforts to organize workers.[220] In April 2021, after a majority of workers in Bessemer, Alabama voted against joining the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, the union asked for a hearing with the NLRB to determine whether the company created "an atmosphere of confusion, coercion and/or fear of reprisals" ahead of the union vote.[221]

Working conditions

Former employees, current employees, the media, and politicians have criticized Amazon for poor working conditions at the company.[222][223][224] In 2011, it was publicized that workers had to carry out tasks in 100 °F (38 °C) heat at the Breinigsville, Pennsylvania warehouse. As a result of these inhumane conditions, employees became extremely uncomfortable and suffered from dehydration and collapse. Loading-bay doors were not opened to allow in fresh air because americas best glasses hours concerns over theft.[225] Amazon's initial response was to pay for an ambulance to sit outside on call to cart away overheated employees.[225] The company eventually installed air conditioning at the warehouse.[226]

Some workers, "pickers", who travel the building with a trolley and a handheld scanner "picking" customer orders, can walk up to 15 miles (24 km) during their workday and if they fall behind on their targets, they can be reprimanded. The handheld scanners give real-time information to the employee on how quickly or slowly they are working; the scanners also serve to allow Team Leads and Area Managers to track the specific locations of employees and how much "idle time" they gain when not working.[227][228]

In a German television report broadcast in February 2013, journalists Diana Löbl and Peter Onneken conducted a covert investigation at the distribution center of Amazon in the town of Bad Hersfeld in the German state of Hessen. The report highlights the behavior of some of the security guards, themselves being employed by a third-party company, who apparently either had a neo-Nazi background or deliberately dressed in neo-Nazi apparel and who were intimidating foreign and temporary female workers at its distribution centers. The third-party security company involved was delisted by Amazon as a business contact shortly after that report.[229][230][231][232]

In March 2015, it was reported in The Verge that Amazon would be removing non-compete clauses of 18 months in length from its US employment contracts for hourly-paid workers, after criticism that it was acting unreasonably in preventing such employees from finding other work. Even short-term temporary workers have to sign contracts that prohibit them from working at any company where they would "directly or indirectly" support any good or service that competes with those they helped support at Amazon, for 18 months after leaving Amazon, even if they are fired or made redundant.[233][234]

A 2015 front-page article in The New York Times profiled several former Amazon employees[235] who together described a "bruising" workplace culture in which workers with illness or other personal crises were pushed out or unfairly evaluated.[14] Bezos responded by writing a Sunday memo to employees,[236] in which he disputed the Times's account of "shockingly callous management practices" that he said would never be tolerated at the company.[14]

In an effort to boost employee morale, on November 2, 2015, Amazon announced that it would be extending six weeks of paid leave for new mothers and fathers. This change includes birth service credit union branches near me and adoptive parents and can be applied in conjunction with existing maternity leave and medical leave for new mothers.[237]

In mid-2018, investigations by journalists and media outlets such as The Guardian reported poor working conditions at Amazon's fulfillment centers.[238][239] Later in 2018, another article exposed poor working conditions for Amazon's delivery drivers.[240]

In response to criticism that Amazon does not pay its workers a livable wage, Jeff Bezos announced beginning November 1, 2018, all US and UK Amazon employees will earn a $15 an hour minimum wage.[241] Amazon will also lobby to make $15 an hour the federal minimum wage.[242] At the same time, Amazon also eliminated stock awards and bonuses for hourly employees.[243]

On Black Friday 2018, Amazon warehouse workers in several European countries, including Italy, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom, went on strike to protest inhumane working conditions and low pay.[244]

The Daily Beast reported in March 2019 that emergency services responded to 189 calls from 46 Amazon warehouses in 17 states between the years 2013 and 2018, all relating to suicidal employees. The workers attributed their mental breakdowns to employer-imposed social isolation, aggressive surveillance, and the hurried and dangerous working conditions at these fulfillment centers. One former employee told The Daily Beast "It's this isolating colony of hell where people having breakdowns is a regular occurrence."[245]

On July 15, 2019, during the onset of Amazon's Prime Day sale event, Amazon employees working in the United States and Germany went on strike in protest of unfair wages and poor working conditions.[246][247]

In August 2019, the BBC reported on Amazon's Twitter ambassadors. Their constant support for and defense of Amazon and its practices have led many Twitter users to suspect that they are in fact bots, being used to dismiss the issues effecting Amazon workers.[248] In March 2021, a flurry of new ambassador accounts claiming to be employees defended the company against a unionization drive, in some cases making the false claim that there was no way to opt out of union dues. Amazon confirmed at least one was fake, and Twitter shut down several for violating its terms of use.[249]

In March 2020, during the coronavirus outbreak when the government instructed companies to restrict social contact, Amazon's UK staff was forced to work overtime to meet the demand spiked by the disease. A GMB spokesperson said the company had put "profit before safety".[250] GMB has continued to raise concerns regarding "gruelling conditions, unrealistic productivity targets, surveillance, bogus self-employment and a refusal to recognise or engage with unions unless forced", calling for the UK government and safety regulators to take action to address these issues.[251]

In its 2020 statement to its US shareholders, Amazon stated that "we respect and support the Core Conventions of the International Labour Organization (ILO), the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights". Operation of these Global Human Rights Principles has been "long-held at Amazon, and codifying them demonstrates our support for fundamental human rights and the dignity of workers everywhere we operate".[252]

On November 27, 2020, Amnesty International said, workers in working for Amazon have faced great health and safety risks since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. On Black Friday, one of Amazon's busiest periods, the company failed to ensure key safety features in France, Poland, the United Kingdom and USA. Workers have been risking their health and lives to ensure essential goods are delivered to consumer doorsteps, helping Amazon achieve record profits.[253]

On January 6, 2021, Amazon said that it is planning to build 20,000 affordable houses by spending $2 billion in the regions where the major employments are located.[254]

On January 24, 2021, Amazon said that it was planning to open a pop-up clinic hosted in partnership with Virginia Mason Franciscan Health in Amazon amazon com in order to vaccinate 2,000 persons against COVID-19 on the first day.[255]

In February 2021, Amazon said that it was planning to put cameras in its delivery vehicles. Although many drivers were upset by this decision, Amazon said that the videos would only be sent in certain circumstances.[256]

Drivers have alleged they sometimes have to urinate and defecate in their vans as a result of pressure to meet quotas. This was denied in a tweet from the official Amazon News account saying: "You don't really believe the peeing in bottles thing, do you? If that were true, nobody would work for us." Amazon employees subsequently leaked an email to The Intercept[257] showing the company was aware its drivers were doing so. The email said: "This evening, an associate discovered human feces service credit union branches near me an Amazon bag that was returned to station by a driver. This is the 3rd occasion in the last 2 months when bags have been returned to station with poop inside."[258] Amazon acknowledged the issue publicly after denying it at first.[259]

In July 2021, workers at the warehouse in New York City filed a complaint with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration which describes harsh 12 hour workdays with sweltering internal temperatures that resulted in fainting workers being carried out on stretchers. The complaint reads "internal temperature is too hot. We have no ventilation, dusty, dirty fans that spread debris into our lungs and eyes, are working at a amazon amazon com pace and [we] are fainting out from heat exhaustion, getting nose bleeds from high blood pressure and feeling dizzy and nauseous." They add that many of the fans provided by the company don't work, water fountains often lack water and cooling systems are insufficient. Those filing the complaint are affiliated with the Amazon Labor Union group attempting to unionize the facility, which the company has been actively campaigning against. Similar conditions have been reported elsewhere, such as in Kent, Washington during the 2021 heat wave.[260][261]

Conflict of interest with the CIA and DOD

In 2013, Amazon secured a US$600 million contract with the CIA, which poses a potential conflict of interest involving the Bezos-owned The Bank of america investment banking salary Post and his newspaper's coverage of the CIA.[262] Kate Martin, director of the Center for National Security Studies, said, "It's a serious potential conflict of interest for a major newspaper like The Washington Post to have a contractual relationship with the government and the most secret part of the government."[263] This was later followed by a US$10 billion contract with the U.S. Department of Defense.[164]

Seattle head tax and houselessness services

In May 2018, Amazon threatened the Seattle City Council over an employee head tax proposal that would have funded houselessness services and low-income housing. The tax would have cost Amazon about $800 per employee, or 0.7% of their average salary.[264] In retaliation, Amazon paused construction on a new building, threatened to limit further investment in the city, and funded a repeal campaign. Although originally passed, the measure was soon repealed after an expensive repeal campaign spearheaded by Amazon.[265]

Nashville Operations Center of Excellence

The incentives given by the Metropolitan Council of Nashville and Davidson County to Amazon for their new Operations Center of Excellence in Nashville Yards, a site owned by developer Southwest Value Partners, have been controversial, including the decision by the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to keep the full extent of the agreement secret.[266] The incentives include "$102 million in combined grants and tax credits for a scaled-down Amazon office building" as well as "a $65 million cash grant for capital expenditures" in exchange for the creation of 5,000 jobs over seven years.[266]

The Tennessee Coalition for Open Government called for more transparency.[266] Another local organization known as the People's Alliance for Transit, Housing, and Employment (PATHE) suggested no public money should be given to Amazon; instead, it should be spent on building more public housing for the working poor and the homeless and investing in more public transportation for Nashvillians.[267] Others suggested incentives to big corporations do not improve the local economy.[268]

In November 2018, the proposal to give Amazon $15 million in incentives was criticized by the Nashville Firefighters Union and the Nashville chapter of the Fraternal Order first national bank severna park Police,[269] who called it "corporate welfare."[270] In February 2019, another $15.2 million in infrastructure was approved by the council, although it was voted down by three council members, including Councilwoman Angie Henderson who dismissed it as "cronyism".[271]

Facial recognition technology and law enforcement

While Amazon has publicly opposed secret government surveillance, as revealed by Freedom of Information Act requests it has supplied facial recognition support to law enforcement in the form of the Rekognition technology and consulting services. Initial testing included the city of Orlando, Florida, and Washington County, Oregon. Amazon offered to connect Washington County with other Amazon government customers interested in Rekognition and a body camera manufacturer. These ventures are opposed by a coalition of civil rights groups bank of eastman magnolia state bank concern that they could lead to an expansion of surveillance and be prone to abuse. Specifically, it could automate the identification and tracking of anyone, particularly in the context of potential police body camera integration.[163][272][273] Because of the backlash, the city of Orlando publicly stated it will no longer use the technology, but may revisit this decision at a later date.[274]

Access to NHS data

The UK government awarded Amazon a contract that gives the company free access to information about healthcare published by the UK's National Health Service.[275] This will, for example, be used by Amazon's Alexa to answer medical questions, although Alexa also uses many other sources of information. The material, which excludes patient data, could also allow the company to make, advertise and sell its own products. The contract allows Amazon access to information on symptoms, causes and definitions of conditions, and "all related copyrightable content and data and other materials". Amazon can then create "new products, applications, cloud-based services and/or distributed software", which the NHS will not benefit from financially. The company can also share the information with third parties. The government said that allowing Alexa devices to offer expert health advice to users will reduce pressure on doctors and pharmacists.[276]

Collection of data and surveillance

On February 17, 2020, a Panorama documentary broadcast by the BBC in the UK highlighted the amount of data collected by the company and the move into surveillance causing concerns of politicians and regulators in the US and Europe.[277][278]

Antitrust complaints

On June 11, 2020, the European Union announced that it will be pressing charges against Amazon over its treatment of third-party e-commerce sellers.[279]

In July 2020, Amazon along with other tech giants Apple, Google and Meta were accused of maintaining harmful power and anti-competitive strategies to quash potential competitors in the market.[280] The CEOs of respective firms appeared in a teleconference on July 29, 2020, before the lawmakers of the U.S. House Antitrust Subcommittee.[281] In October 2020, the antitrust subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives released a report accusing Amazon of abusing a monopoly position in ecommerce to unfairly compete with sellers on its own platform.[282]

Anti-vaccination and non-scientific cancer 'cures'

Anti-vaccination and non evidence-based cancer 'cures' have routinely appeared high in Amazon's books and videos. This may be due to positive mortgage payment calculator with taxes posted by supporters of untested methods, or gaming of the algorithms by truther communities, rather than any intent on the company's part.[283][284]

Wired magazine found that Amazon Prime Video was full of 'pseudoscientific documentaries laden with conspiracy theories and pointing viewers towards unproven treatments'.[285]

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) expressed concern that Amazon was “surfacing and recommending products and content that discourage parents from vaccinating their children.” Amazon subsequently removed five anti-vaccination documentaries.[286] Amazon also removed 12 books that unscientifically claimed bleach could cure conditions including malaria and childhood autism. This followed an NBC News report about parents who used it in a misguided attempt to reverse their children's autism.[287]

Response to COVID-19 pandemic

Hazard pay and overtime

Amazon introduced new policies to reward frontline workers for continuing to come into work during the crisis. One of these policies, announced on March 16, 2020, was a temporary $2-per-hour rise in pay. This policy expired in June 2020.[288] Amazon also announced a policy of unlimited, unpaid time off that lasted until April 30, 2020.[289]

Additional hiring as a result of pandemic

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Amazon introduced temporary restrictions on the sale of non-essential goods. In March 2020, it hired some 100,000 more staff in the US to help deal with essential items such as food and medical equipment. It also reported that it was so busy that it was unable to bring on board new customers and therefore had to have a waiting list. In April, the firm announced that it was going to hire up to 75,000 workers to help deal with increased demand.[290] In September 2020, the company announced it would hire an additional 100,000 workers in the United States and Canada.[291]

Employee protests during COVID-19

During the pandemic there have been protests by the Amazon workers at warehouses amazon amazon com the US, France, and Italy. The BBC reported that there were confirmed coronavirus cases in more than 50 locations.[290] The reason for the protests is the company policy to "run normal shifts" despite many positive cases of the virus.[292] According to the UNI Global Union, "Amazon cannot act like this is business as usual. We are facing a deadly virus that has already taken the lives of thousands of people and paralyzed the world's economy. If distribution centers are not safe for workers right now, they should be closed immediately."[292] In Spain, the company has faced legal complaints over its policies.[293] Despite workers at 19 warehouses in the US having tested positive for COVID-19, Amazon did not shut down warehouses, only doing so when forced by the government or because of protests. A group of US Senators wrote an open letter to Bezos in March 2020, expressing concerns about worker safety.[294]

An Amazon warehouse protest on March 30, 2020, in Staten Island www psecu com account access to its organizer, Christian Smalls, being fired. Amazon defended the decision by saying that Smalls was supposed to be in self-isolation at the time and leading the protest put its other workers at risk.[293] Smalls has called this response "ridiculous".[295] The New York state attorney general, Letitia James, is considering legal retaliation to the firing which she called "immoral and inhumane."[293] She also asked the National Labor Relations Board to investigate Smalls' firing. Smalls himself accuses the company of retaliating against him for organizing a protest.[295] At the Staten Island warehouse, one case of COVID-19 has been confirmed by Amazon; workers believe there are more, and say that the company has not cleaned the building, given them suitable protection, or informed them of potential cases.[294] Smalls added specifically that there are many workers there in risk categories, and the protest only demanded that the building be sanitized and the employees continue to be paid during that process.[295] Derrick Palmer, another worker at the Staten Island amazon amazon com, told The Verge that Amazon quickly communicates through text and email when they need the staff to complete mandatory overtime, but have not been using this to tell people when a colleague has contracted the disease, instead waiting days and sending managers to speak to employees in person.[294] Amazon claim that the Staten Island protest only attracted 15 of the facility's 5,000 workers,[296] while other sources describe much larger crowds.[294]

On April 14, 2020, two Amazon employees were fired for "repeatedly violating internal policies", after they had circulated a petition about health risks for warehouse workers internally.[297]

On May 4, Amazon vice president Tim Bray resigned "in dismay" over the firing of whistle-blower employees who spoke out discover online banking bonus the lack of COVID-19 protections, including shortages of face masks and failure to implement widespread temperature checks which were promised by the company. He said that the firings were "chickenshit" and "designed to create a climate of fear" in Amazon warehouses.[298]

In a Q1 2020 financial report, Jeff Bezos announced that Amazon expects to spend $4 billion or more (predicted operating profit for Q2) on COVID-19-related issues: personal protective equipment, higher wages for hourly teams, cleaning for facilities, and expanding Amazon's COVID-19 testing capabilities. These measures intend to improve the safety and well-being of hundreds of thousands of the company's employees.[299]

From the beginning of 2020 until September of the same year, the company declared that the total number of workers who had contracted the infection was 19,816.[300]

Closure in France

The SUD (trade unions) brought a court case against Amazon for unsafe working conditions. This resulted in a French district court (Nanterre) ruling on April 15, 2020, ordering the company to limit, under threat of a €1 million per day fine, its deliveries to certain essential items, including electronics, food, medical or hygienic products, and supplies for home improvement, animals, and offices.[301] Instead, Amazon immediately shut down its six warehouses in France, continuing to pay workers but limiting deliveries to items shipped from third-party sellers and warehouses outside of France.[302] The company said the €100,000 fine for each prohibited item shipped could result in billions of dollars in fines even with a small fraction of items misclassified.[303] After losing an appeal and coming to an agreement with labor unions for more pay and staggered schedules, the company reopened its French warehouses on May 19.[302]

Lobbying

Amazon lobbies the United States federal government and state governments on multiple issues such as the enforcement of sales taxes on online sales, transportation safety, privacy and data protection and intellectual property. According to regulatory filings, Amazon.com focuses its lobbying on the United States Congress, the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Reserve. Amazon.com spent roughly $3.5 million, $5 million and $9.5 million on lobbying, in 2013, 2014 and 2015, respectively.[304]

Amazon.com was a corporate member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) until it dropped membership following protests at its shareholders' meeting on May 24, 2012.[305]

In 2014, Amazon expanded its lobbying practices as it prepared to lobby the Federal Aviation Administration to approve its drone delivery program, hiring the Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld lobbying firm in June.[306] Amazon and its lobbyists have visited with Federal Aviation Administration officials and aviation committees in Washington, D.C. to explain its plans to deliver packages.[307] In September 2020 this moved one step closer with the granting of a critical certificate by the FAA.[308]

Peter Tonguette 

Move over, Tom Cruise. A new Jack Reacher reaches out in the trailer for an Amazon Prime Video series based on Lee Child's best-selling action thriller novels.

In this TV version, Alan Ritchson plays the ass-kicking literary hero. Appearing in 26 books, Reacher is a decorated former military policeman who roams the US looking for trouble. The debut season is based on the first book in the series, Killing Floor, in which Reacher tackles a conspiracy in a small town. 

Entertain your brain with the coolest news from streaming to superheroes, memes to video games.

All eight episodes are set to premiere on Prime Video on Feb. 4, 2022.

Tom Cruise played Reacher in two movies, in 2012 and 2016, but he drew criticism from fans of the books for being a fraction of the size of the 6-foot-5-inch, 250-pound character described by Child. Ritchson, who previously starred as superheroes Aquaman in Smallville and Hawk in Titans, is clearly much closer to the man-mountain of the books, popping zip ties, taking on all comers in a prison brawl, and giving XXL T-shirts a run for their money.

When is Amazon Cyber Monday 2021? 

Officially Cyber Monday started on Monday, November 29. Amazon's Cyber Monday sale, however, kicked off early on Saturday, November 27. The retailer is now continuing its cyber deals through the end of this weekend.  

When does the Amazon Cyber Monday sale begin?

The Amazon Cyber Monday sale started on Saturday, November 27, shortly after the Amazon Black Friday sale ended on Friday, November 26. In some cases many of the Amazon Cyber Monday deals we've seen are similar to Black Friday markdowns, however, there have been a few new deals on top-tier products, too.

Once the Amazon Cyber Monday sale comes to an end, we expect to see discounts on select items throughout the holiday season—however, with shipping delays and stock shortages expected, we recommend shopping early to ensure you get all the holiday gifts on your list this year. 

When does Amazon's Cyber Monday sale end?

While Cyber Monday officially ended at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, November 29, there are still plenty of cyber deals available at Amazon. Historically, we've seen Amazon continue similar price drops in the days and weeks that follow Cyber Monday—sometimes dropping a few items even lower than their Black Friday tag. We'll continue to update this page as prices change throughout the week.

Amazon Black Friday vs Cyber Monday: which deals are better? 

Technically Amazon Cyber Monday deals rolled out as soon as Black Friday ended on November 26. As in years past, we saw significant overlap in Amazon Black Friday and Cyber Monday markdowns. Although the Cyber Monday savings are still around, be sure to keep a close eye on shipping times and stock shortages before placing any orders. Some items, like iPads, MacBooks and especially AirPods, often sell out or become back-ordered, meaning they may not ship until well after Christmas and the holiday season.

If you're still planning on shopping Amazon's extended Cyber Monday deals, be sure to secure an Amazon Prime membership to enjoy fast and free shipping, too.

Are Amazon Cyber Monday sales available online? 

Yes. Amazon Cyber Monday sales are exclusively available online. Most are available on the website, though you can also find some exclusive sales by asking Alexa on an Alexa-enabled WiFi speaker like the Echo Dot. Just ask Alexa for the latest deals to see what is being offered.

Will the Playstation 5 be on sale for Cyber Monday at Amazon?

Amazon had some PS5 consoles available on Saturday, November 27 at their normal retail price (the lowest price you can expect to see for a while) and has said that they may potentially return at various times throughout the week. PS5 deals sell out in mere minutes, so you'll need to just keep checking that link to see if you can get one. You'll also want to be a Prime Member—it could be your best shot of getting a PS5 this holiday season.

Will the iPad be on sale for Cyber Monday?

You can scoop up a 12.9-Inch 2021 2T Apple iPad Pro right now at Amazon for $2,049.99—$149.01 off the full $2,199 list price. If you order today, your new WiFi enabled smart tablet could arrive as early as next week. 

Meanwhile, you can pre-order 12.9-inch 2021 128GB iPad Pro and save $100 right now. Keep in mind, however, the 128GB model is expected to be in stock soon, so the expected delivery date is mid-January. Besides the iPad Pro deals, we haven't seen extensive discounts on iPads or non-Amazon tablets during Amazon's Cyber Monday sale

What are the best deals from the Amazon Cyber Monday 2021 sale? 

To date, we've seen massive Amazon Cyber Monday deals on air fryers, headphones, home goods and more—including tons of products from some of our favorite brands, like Apple, Zojirushi, Sony, Instant Pot, Bose, iRobot and Shark. Whether it's a new tablet with hours of battery life, a fitness tracker for monitoring your heart rate or some new headphones, Amazon pretty much has it all.

Every day Amazon adds even more sales to their lineup of Epic Daily Deals. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back frequently to scoop the hottest Amazon discounts on must-have items this holiday season.  

Does Amazon have special Cyber Monday deals for Amazon Prime members? 

Yes. During the holiday shopping season, Amazon Prime members have early access to select holiday deals and can even earn up to 25% back on select Amazon purchases with an Amazon Prime Card and an eligible Prime membership. Meanwhile, Prime members can get their holiday gifts quicker with access to free and fast shipping, with millions of must-have items available for same-day delivery. If you aren't already an Amazon Prime member, don't worry—you can always sign up.

How to watch Spurs vs Brentford on Amazon Prime Video – stream details here

How to watch Spurs vs Brentford in the Premier League: How to access the Amazon Prime Video live stream for Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford.

It’s been a really busy week in the Premier League with a full line-up of midweek fixtures, all of which are live on Amazon Prime. While there has been quite a lot of grumbling about needing to sign up for yet another subscription service beyond Sky Sports and BT Sport, but it is nice being able to pick and choose which games you want to watch.

There are two options tonight. There’s Arsenal vs Manchester United and Tottenham vs Brentford. We’re focusing on the latter as Spurs look to continue their progress start under new boss Antonio Conte.

The Italian led his new side to a come-from-behind win against Leeds last time out and, after the weekend’s postponed game at Burnley, welcome fellow Londoners Brentford to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Brentford flew out of the traps in the first ever Premier League season and sit 11th having notched four wins and four draws in their first 13 games in the top flight. Frontman Ivan Toney will lead the line once again in what promises to be a entertaining London derby on Thursday night.

Spurs vs Brentford kick-off time

Spurs vs Brentford kicks off at 7:30pm UK time on Thursday December 2. Spurs are back at home at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, so will fancy their chances of getting another win on the board, despite Harry Kane’s recent goalscoring struggles.

How to watch Spurs vs Brentford

As we mentioned above Amazon Prime Video is only way to watch tonight’s game live. Amazon has the rights to a couple of rounds of fixtures over the festive season and all of the mid-week fixtures are available to watch on Prime Video.

You will need an active Amazon Prime subscription in order to tune into the game via all of the major mobile and smart TV apps, while you can also watch on the Amazon Prime Video website.

If you’re yet to sign up for Amazon Prime, or have let your subscription lapse over the last few months, you can sign-up here. It costs £79.99 a year or £7.99 a month.

If you’re lucky Amazon may offer you a 30 day Amazon Prime trial, but that’s unlikely to be available to all previous account holders. New account holders automatically get a free Amazon Prime Video trial for one month so you’ll get this game for free.

Watch safely with a VPN

When you’re watching content online, it’s a good idea to boost your privacy by using a VPN to mask your IP address from would-be wrongdoers. You can read our guide to the best VPNs before streaming Premier League games

Bug fixes and performance improvements

Ratings and Reviews

Good, but flawed

I love the prime video app overall. For the most part it remembers where you left off on shows from device to device. I can save my favorites, and it recommends shows for me.
The first flaw that bugs me, if I pause the movie with around 5 minutes left, and come back to it after the screen shuts off, it always skips to the next episode and cuts off my last few minutes. This happens on my Galaxy, Firestick and iPad, so I know it’s not my device . Drives me crazy.
Next flaw is I can’t clear my watch history on just one show. I’m rewatching some shows and lose my place because it shows that I’ve seen all the episodes. I don’t want to clear my entire watch history, then I’ll lose my place in current shows. I wish this was a feature. If this feature exists, I haven’t seen anywhere to click to make this happen.
Other than these two complaints, I enjoy prime video very much!

Good enough but not great!

I find the layout of the movies a bit awkward. I wish for example when I want to look at my watchlist it would show thumbnails on the entire page of nothing but my watchlist. Same with the different categories of watch next or any other category of movies. I hate swiping from right to left to have to go through a bunch of movies to find the movie I am looking for. Good enough of selection of movies, never enough. Like to see more foreign films and independent films.

Also would like to see them get rid of the ludicrous restriction of the prohibition against watching videos outside the country. Why do they care if I watch it in Utah or if I watch it in Japan? I have paid to watch the film. They certainly should be able to work around this legal technicality which is absurd! That’s when I want to watch my movies the most, when I’m outside the country.

Also I think they charge for way too many series and films when I am a Prime member. They vast majority should be free.

good selection but poor app experience

i thoroughly enjoy the selection of tv shows and movies prime video brings. add ons, especially the HBO add on just heightens my experience. despite this, the developers have plenty of work to do with the app itself. it works just fine on the tv but the app is another story. often when i start a new episode the pause screen remains while the video continues to play in the background. i try to tap to make it go away and nothing happens. i try to tap anywhere to make it do anything like press back to return the home page or press pause and nothing works. i even exit the app and close the tab and the audio continues to play in the background. even turning off my phone it continues to play for several moments after. at first i thought it was just my ipad since it was an older model and has a history of issues but i continuously had the same issues on my iphone. not the end of the world but certainly annoying

Move over, Tom Cruise. A new Jack Reacher reaches out in the trailer for an Amazon Prime Video series based on Lee Child's best-selling action thriller novels.

In this TV version, Alan Ritchson plays the ass-kicking literary hero. Appearing in 26 books, Reacher is a decorated former military policeman who roams the US looking for trouble. The debut season is based on the first book in the series, Killing Floor, in which Reacher tackles a conspiracy in a small town. 

Entertain your brain with the coolest news from streaming to superheroes, memes to video games.

All eight episodes are set to premiere on Prime Video on Feb. 4, 2022.

Tom Cruise played Reacher in two movies, in 2012 and 2016, but he drew criticism from fans of the books for being a fraction of the size of the 6-foot-5-inch, 250-pound character described by Child.

Amazon Prime Video Looks to Southeast Asia Production Launch

Amazon Prime Video is hatching plans to expand its streaming service within Southeast Asia, the company said on Thursday.

The company unveiled a plan to open a regional office in Singapore and said that it will add Indonesia, Thailand, The Philippines and Singapore to its Asian production footprint, which currently spans only three countries.

“We are thrilled to announce that we will now add Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Singapore to the canon of Japan, Australia, and India in the APAC region,” said Erika North, director of Amazon Originals at Prime Video.

She was speaking at the Asia TV Forum and Market in Singapore. Her fireside chat was styled largely as an appeal to local creators about production and partnerships.

She offered few clues about the timeline to launch productions. “We are at ‘day one’ when we think of South East Asia,” she said. “We are also looking for a director for the South East Asia Prime Video business, so there is immense opportunity.”

Amazon’s website indicates that at least four other Southeast Asia jobs are currently open. These include a senior manager for content acquisition, a social media team leader, a creative director and a recruiting manager.

Significantly, Amazon does not operate its Prime shopping and delivery subscription service in Thailand, Indonesia or The Philippines. That means that its video services in those countries operate as pure-play streamers without the benefit of the flywheel effect, combining e-commerce and services that its executives frequently tout.

Prime is currently available in Singapore, at a cost of S$2.99 ($2.19) per month. Its country-specific web page says that it already includes video, gaming and free delivery of goods bought online.

“We are truly open for business, and our goal in South East Asia, as much as it is in every other part of the world, is to partner with the top local talents across the region to find stories and opportunities to tell their stories and amplify them across over 200 million Prime members across 240 countries and territories,” said North.

Amazon Studios aims to be a true “home for talent,” North said. She explained that this means “means we want to be top of mind for creatives when they’re thinking about great ideas, and we want to be partners who are genuinely interested in working with them to make great things happen. We care about development. We spend time curating their stories, and we will take pitches at any point in gestation. Over time, we will build that trust as Amazon with the community.”

“It’s truly about stories, giving them the time that they need, understanding the particularities and peculiarities of the format,” she added.

North offered unscripted Japanese series “Documental” as an example of an Asian show that can be expanded onto the international stage. Now in its tenth season in Japan, it has been reformatted and reimagined as LOL: Last One Laughing around the world. “It is the number 1 show for Prime Video in Italy, Germany, and it’s in the top three among multiple markets where it launched including Mexico,” said North.

Other Amazon content now being made in Asia-Pacific includes “The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart,” an Australian book-to-film adaptation that stars Sigourney Weaver; and the platform’s first Japanese original film “Homestay.” The picture is a YA supernatural romance based on a “Colorful,” a novel by Mori Eto, and stars Nagao Kento in his first feature film role alongside Anna Yamada.
