I've tried for weeks calling into Dish Support. Some say that Prime should work on the new Joey 3's, others say it's not supported, which is weird as the Joey just receives a stream from the Hopper 3. I can get Amazon Prime fine on the Hopper, but I can only see Netflix on my Joey's. I have check that I do not have the prime channel locked out and not removed from any favorites list.

If anyone has managed to get Amazon Prime to show up on your Joey, can you post how you did it? It's a little frustrating, starting something on Prime, then going upstairs to continue watching and NADA.

Thanks,
B

Amazon Prime is not available on any Joey of any kind. Most say that this is an Amazon decision based on non-availablility of HDR or certain audio standards on the Joeys.

As the Joey's just mirror the Hopper 3, just curious if Dish could address this with a software upgrade to the Joey's or is the physical hardware not in the Joey 3's? If the 2nd, then we're up sheets-creek. Time to wait for a Joey 4 and pay more money! Thanks

The hardware in the joeys is not the same as the hoppers...
There a versions of streams which the hopper can decode but the joey cannot.
The joey is not a mirrored hopper.
