Simply watch one of the shows produced by Amazon, such as "Alpha House" and "Betas." Both of these shows are located on the home screen of the app currently. Watching one of these shows also stacks with the genre achievements for the app.

It can be done in Snap mode as well, but stating the Amazon App, starting the show, returning to your game, and using the Snap command.

Like the others, it can also be unlocked by fast forwarding to the last minute or so and letting the credits run until the show ends.

EDIT: Here is a possible solution to the glitch, according to Greyfalken:

"I can confirm that this works now, though it looks like it may only pop on something you haven't watched before. I loaded up Alpha House (which I'd seen already) and didn't get credit, but then I tried Betas (which I had never watched) and it worked. If you've already watched both of those shows, you might try one of the Amazon Originals Kids series: Creative Galaxy, Annebots, or Tumbleaf. I have no idea if they count for the challenge and unfortunately I can't check now that I've completed it."
keoskeywhen i try watching the preview episode for betas or alpha the enitre video plays then when it goes back to episode select it tell me to resume episode and show that there is a section of the video i did not watch.
i have watched both shoows previews almost a dozen time with no luck unlocking it.

Jeh64I'm in the same boat, won't unlock for me either.

keoskeyjust to confirm with someone the Betas episode 0 is 51 sec's long right
maybe amazon is bugging and some of the video is not showing up when i play it.

Jeh64I watched the preview and actual pilots for both. Based on the description, I think you need to watch episode 1, but its still not unlocking for me.

trink202That's really strange. I turned on Alpha House and ran some errands. When I came back, it was unlocked. Maybe it is glitched right now?

GrimaceTheGreySame boat, won't unlock for me either.

Doctor PlowAccording to TA the last person to unlock this did so on Dec. 16, meaning someone must have borked something up

JakeythedudeGuys, a "Pilot" is always the first episode of a show. Just an fyi. So episode 2 and beyond or episode 0 won't work.
Posted by Jakeythedude on 29 Dec 13 at 07:42
GrimaceTheGreyWe have established what a pilot is Jake. The point people are making is that they are going above and beyond the requirements for this by watching even a full season and still nothing.

Doctor PlowWould one contact Microsoft or Amazon to see what the deal with this challenge is?

Kamerastill glitched :/

TBS NikolaiI just watched the first episode of Alpha House, not episode 0, episode 1, and it just unlocked. Very weird that no one has unlocked it since Dec 16th but I just popped it.

Doctor PlowI uninstalled and reinstalled, deleted and re-recovered my tag, deleted and re-added my amazon account, fast forwarded through and actually watched the episodes and got nothing. I did however unlock this on a dummy account with no problem

GreyfalkenI can confirm that this works now, though it looks like it may only pop on something you haven't watched before. I loaded up Alpha House (which I'd seen already) and didn't get credit, but then I tried Betas (which I had never watched) and it worked. If you've already watched both of those shows, you might try one of the Amazon Originals Kids series: Creative Galaxy, Annebots, or Tumbleaf. I have no idea if they count for the challenge and unfortunately I can't check now that I've completed it.

Doctor PlowThanks for the tip. I'd already attempted both alphas and beta house. Can confirm that if you try something you haven't watched yet, it will unlock!

MathGuy42I just got this from Annebots, Episode 1, so I can confirm that the Kids shows work too. Thanks!
Posted by MathGuy42 on 29 Jan 14 at 11:30
ScuzzyBunnyI saw MathGuy got it on my friends feed and can re-confirm that Annebots ep 1 works if you have already watched Alpha House and Betas.

Suicidal3000I had already tried all 5 of these shows while it was broken.. and therefore it is still not popping for me with any of them. Frustrating.
Posted by Suicidal3000 on 30 Jan 14 at 07:18
NeezerJust watched Annebots Season 1: Episode 1, and it popped.

I have watched Alpha House and Betas previously as well, so I can confirm it works.

Thanks for posting MathGuy42! wink
Posted by Neezer on 31 Jan 14 at 17:29
MathGuy42Thanks also to Greyfalken. I would not have known of those other shows without his post.
Posted by MathGuy42 on 31 Jan 14 at 18:28
SKOOT2006I can also confirm you need to watch a pilot you've not previously watched. Creative Galaxy season 1 episode 1 worked for me. Thanks Greyfalken!

KameraI watched Makers (Kid's original plot) and Betas before it unlocked.
Posted by Kamera on 10 Feb 14 at 17:51
Drachen77I just watched The After and it didn't pop. I guess I'll try something else.
Posted by Drachen77 on 14 Feb 14 at 02:55
CTM AudiRS6I watched The After episode 0 then watched episode 1 and did not get it. By watching episode 0 I think that counts as having previously watched the show. So don't watch episode 0 of the show you are trying to get this for, or it wont work.

I loaded up Alpha House episode 1 afterwards, skipped to 23min, and watched through the credits. Achievement popped as it got back to the episode select screen.

XtowersThanks for the info. I'll have to try it again.
Posted by Xtowers on 27 Feb 14 at 17:19
OverkillChaosTried multiple shows that I have never watched on Pilot and I pick episode 1 first and still nothing anybody got some pointers?
Posted by OverkillChaos on 02 Mar 14 at 23:25
XtowersStill didn't get it after watching one of the cartoons.
Posted by Xtowers on 14 Mar 14 at 18:30
XtowersWatched the Rebels pilot and nothing.
Posted by Xtowers on 20 Mar 14 at 16:18
Drachen77So this goofy little challenge has been giving me fits for a while but I finally got it to pop. I watched a terrible cartoon called "Annebots". It's only 12 minutes so I just watched it and didn't fast forward it. I had watched almost everything else in there but not that. Very odd that it popped.
Posted by Drachen77 on 01 Apr 14 at 04:11
Darren Greasleywatched all the shows noted on here and no challenge unlocked - strange...............
Posted by Darren Greasley on 04 Apr 14 at 23:00
KanchanaburiI must say, getting achievements and doing challenages for watching a tv show is..... I am at a loss for words.
Posted by Kanchanaburi on 24 Apr 14 at 23:32
OverkillChaosTried this again several months later and got it watching Tumbleleaf Episode 1 not zero. I didn't watch zero at all. I skipped forward to 2 minutes left watched the horrible show all the way through the credits, and when it went back to the menu it popped so I guess give it a try.
Posted by OverkillChaos on 12 May 14 at 00:15
XtowersPopped for me with tumble leaf episode 1, too. Not Zero. I accessed the show from the front page of the Kid Zone (it was part of a rotating ad for shows).

CrazyBirdMadHave watched all the above programs and nothing today
Posted by CrazyBirdMad on 04 Aug 14 at 22:17
OzzysShadyDiscoCouldn't find "Annebots" so I watched "Annedroids" and it popped.
Well, I fast forwarded through to 22 min and watched the credits. +1

AceMcCloudOk, after spending an even watching those pilots, just realised there are three Amazon Instant Video Apps, USA one, UK one (Amazon/LOVEFILM) and a German one.
This challenge only works for the USA one, so everyone else, don't waste your time.
