Can her show not be found anywhere else? Is it like a Amazon exclusive show?

Only way is to use cast from Chrome browser on a PC right now. It works fine, but you have to have a semi-recent PC. Complain to Amazon like the guy from Engadget did and try to get a partial credit. He has a form letter to help.

There are other ways, I don't exactly approve of spreading the word on companies with absolutely no moral grounding but it is possible with a DLNA server that has Amazon prime in their channel mix and you can use bubbleupnp to cast it

The Android community have been waiting for an Amazon Video app forever. I don't think I'll be renewing Prime when it's up this time, especially with the rumor of higher yearly rates.

Showbox + Avia or BubbleUPnP will work fine. If you really want Amazon video on a streaming stick and don't want the hassle then check out the newest Roku 3500R Streaming Stick that well be out in a month.

Another alternative is using wifi mouse or an automation program that can move the mouse for you while you are casting. That way you don't have to be at your computer to use Amazon videos
