Lack of Amazon VOD


from Eatontown, NJ, USA


  • Compact
  • Inexpensive


  • Did not meet expectations
  • Poor Documentation

Best Uses

    I too bought this player with the intention of using Amazon Video On Demand (VOD). This streaming service is not available still as of 3/4/14. What is the delay? I would like to know how long the logo for Amazon has been on the Panasonic product page with the "coming soon" qualification. I have multiple Panasonic products (2 Plasma TVs and 3 Bluray players). I have always been satisfied with their products and happily recommend them to my friends. This issue has disappointed me to the point I will go elsewhere when I have electronic needs.
