We conducted a medium sized review for one of our favourite TV content source. Amazon Prime Video. After spending tons of hours with this App (which of course also applies to the main competitors Apps) we were very confident about some findings...
The Business Objectives
What do we want to achieve with this App? Which problems do we solve?
VOD streaming is not only a matter of great content but also a matter of how often people come back and how much new content a user is able to discover.
While competition got tough in this market Amazon strives to become the #1 video on demand platform worldwide. We can only achieve this goal by providing the user the best possible experience.

The target audience
Who did we build it for & which people do we target
Our audience is a mixed with a variety of background. The main audience is tech and design affine while in the age range of 16 to 45 years.
Amazon provided some more in deep personas which helped our reviewers finding the right context.
Scope of the review
What did we review exactly?
Since this was a medium sized review - the main focus was on the initial experience the users get right after opening the app. Reviewing the more secondary actions (Detail, Search, Settings, etc) was more of a holistic approach.
