Knives Out is now on Prime. In 4K & HDR as well, so make sure you search for it and find the right one!

Knives Out is over-rated. Now what you took your name form KeyserSoze, now that's a film!

Its hard to find the 4K versions of films and shows on Amazon isnt it? At least it feels that on the Apple TV interface

Yep, they've made the utterly bizarre decision to list all 4K content as separate titles.

As Knives out is now their top promo image on Prime now I bet there will be countless people with 4K screens who'll watch it in 1080p not knowing there was a 4K HDR listing for it. I wouldn't have thought to look for it either, only happened to end up on it from the JustWatch link!

The most annoying thing about it is that if your connection can't sustain a 4K feed, it'll drop to 1080p anyway. Why not default all to the highest quality your system can take?

I use the app on iPad to create watch lists / add to my Apple Watch. Etc lists and then play on Apple TV, still far from ideal but that bit easier to navigate (and how I found The Sweeney and The professionals on there by accident)

My mate has AppleTV and he says it automatically picks the highest quality version.

It's a disgrace. Awful implementation.

I'm the secondary user on my brother's Prime account, so can't really add watch list stuff to find the 4K videos. Absolute joke and something they need to look to Netflix to for how to do that **** properly.

It didn't help that the Knives Out posters for UHD and HD were different. Also it's the last item on the list of '4k prime' search. Best to search for 'knives' and it'll appear there. The '4k prime' list wasn't even in alphabetical order. You'd think that Amazon could use it's cash mountain to make finding things easier.

Really need a 'prime' and 'UHD' filter buttons.

Enjoyed the film. Daniel Craig's accent was odd though

Just seen him. He says he does a voice search in AppleTV then that takes you directly into the specific Prime page from there.
