Amazon Prime Video Being Sued

Prime Video subscribers have filed a lawsuit against the streaming service, alleging they were misled by the streaming service's new policy to charge extra to watch content without ads.  At the end of January, Prime Video made the ad-supported tier its default level for all subscribers, and if you want to get rid of the ads, you now have to pay an extra $2.99 per month. Currently, Amazon Prime includes Prime Video at $14.99 a month. A membership to Prime Video without shipping benefits is $8.99 a month.  The lawsuit claims the move to add the new tier is "unfair," "deceptive," and "unlawful," is in breach of contract, and violates California consumer protection laws of consumers who now have to pay the extra $2.99 a month.  The lawsuit is looking to get $5 million dollars and a court order that stops Amazon from implementing the new ad-free tier to anyone who subscribed to Prime before December 28, 2023.  What are your thoughts on this lawsuit? Are you beginning to sour on streaming services?
