I’d feel a bit bad doing that. Amazon is a struggling company. They can’t even afford to pay the proper rate of tax in the UK or around the world :frowning: plus their owner, well known for his generous philanthropic work, has just had to pay for a messy divorce that wasn’t even his fault.

[Huge amounts of sarcasm - also the tax loopholes are the fault of sucessive governments - the current ruling party that has had over 10 years to sort the issue and haven’t bothered doing so… but I won’t rant about that here!!]

It looks like you need an Indian bank / credit card to perform this trick now… shame

It’s the same for now tv (sky) three times in a row I’ve cancelled, gone through all three cancel screens and it offers it more or less half price for 3/6 months.

Oh cool, does the TW debt card get past the country block? If so, I’m guessing it works with Amazon Prime too right?

May be good longer term for the industry and not for the streaming services - realistically unlikely to go anywhere and very UK centric ; not sure if the EU have anything similar and the US position will no doubt depend on where the election goes; focus seems to be on the big tech currently

I wonder how long it’s going to take for some UK MPs to realise that now the UK is alone, it no longer has the clout to influence how giant multinational corporations operate.

Down ~8% today after earnings miss. Users up, but revenue per users fell.
