Hi, Daniel Ross Dudley. You're not doing anything wrong! For some reason, links between Amazon Video entries and IMDb title entries will not be reflected on IMDb, if the movie to which they pertain has a running time less than ten minutes. I'm not sure if this fact is documented anywhere in the large body of IMDb Help articles.

I'm just following up here to confirm that our tech team investigated the issue and unfortunately, we cannot show the Watch on Prime Video link for content that is under 10 minutes (so this is why the "Watch Now" feature can't be displayed for this product).   We've let the appropriate team know about this use case and requested new functionality be added in the future, though unfortunately, this product cannot be displayed currently.

Hi, Karen. It would make sense that the condition might not apply to episodes of a series. Do episodes even have ASINs to begin with? Maybe only the series to which the episodes belong do. The IMDb title page for "The Time Zack Morris Sucker Punched Slater Over A Girl He Just Met", S3 E9, points to https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/amzn1.dv.gti.8eb3855c-e791-d4a2-f2fe-c579264a97ae, whereas the one for "The Time Zack Morris Arranged His Friend's Murder For A Used Dirtbike", S3 E8, points to  https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/amzn1.dv.gti.3ab35b65-2c48-d854-900b-9b4333e926a6, and presumably each of individual IMDb title pages points to a unique URL, but none of the URLs contains an ASIN. So, the Amazon system sorts it out presumably whenever a request or report is generated.

Hi Jeorj -

 

Are you specifically referring to the redirection from the IMDb episode title page to a series season overview product page with all listed episodes?

 

If not, can you clarify the glitch/display you are referring to?

Michelle, I unfortunately didn't notice your question until five days after it was posted. (Someow it slipped by me.) Yes, I do believe I was specifically referring to the way an episode title page on IMDb link to a season overview product page on Amazon, as all the URLs are unique yet the content of the destination seem to be identical. As near as I can tell, ASINs for individual episodes don't exit. I figured out how to find the ASIN or pseudo-ASIN, for the whole season, though. In this case, it is B07H531PZ9 (Amazon·Com) which is seemingly separate from B07KNZSNWC (Amazon·Co·UK). Interesting.

By the way, a more appropriate URL to the Amazon Video entry in question is https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/video/detail/B07KNZSNWC, which will allow Web clients who are not signed into the Amazon website to see the information about the television series episode in question.

Under which topic?

Hi, Michelle. Do you wonder if this glitch or "display logic" problem has anything to do with the fact that the link between the two systems pertains to the last episode of the series?
