‘Mad Men’ finale still missing from Amazon Instant Video
Fans who watch ‘Mad Men’ on Amazon streaming video remain on high spoiler alert.
Dropping cable television subscriptions and switching instead to streaming video services to get your broadcast TV fix is a good idea—until your streaming video service doesn’t work.
The 14th and final episode of Mad Men season 7, which is also the series finale has not been uploaded yet for Amazon Instant Video users, including those with a season pass to the show. Google Play and iTunes are good to go with the finale, but social media is a huge minefield of spoilers today for anyone who depends on Amazon for their Mad Men fix.
Though only a few streaming video services upload an episode on the same day as broadcast, but the morning following broadcast is a safe assumption by viewers. That is not the case on Amazon currently, which has inspired a slew of one-star reviews for the series that of course have nothing to do with the quality of Mad Men, but the quality of Amazon Instant Video.
This is very much a first world problem, of course, and not everyone reporting the problem has lost that perspective while still registering their discontent. Our favorite comment of them all:
Commenters have reported that Amazon technical assistance expects the episode to be uploaded between 6 and 7pm ET. Until then, if you’re one of the affected customers, give Twitter and Facebook a rest or face the consequences.
