Amazon Video delay

Our premiere on Amazon Video has been delayed by closed-captioning issues. We are working with the transcription service to replace, but this problem only became known to the makers of Schoolidarity the night before its premiere... which was the beginning of the Labor Day weekend in the US. We will blast the mail list with announcements when all is finally ready. Sorry about all these fits and starts for the launch. Very frustrating.
