Was going to watch episode 8 tonight, but I noticed Amazon Prime only went as far as episode 7. I check online to find info about Amazon dropping the remaining simulcasts of the show and I found nothing. So I called Amazon and they didn't give me a clear answer. I know Amazon got rid of their Anime channel, but not the shows they have rights to simulcast.

Episode 8 just came out and Amazon is notorious for delays with their simulcasts

I noticed episode 8 was not up yet, when normally it goes up shortly after broadcast on Fridays. So, I contacted support and let them know and was told they'd have the episode up some time later today (March 4). I also asked if future episodes would be delayed and was told they would not and should go up at the usual time on Fridays from now on. Hopefully, all they told me is true.

From what i heard is that series that they simulcast, sometimes there are delays. It might take hours or days before the newest episode comes. I guess they haven't got used to the concept of simulcast?

Also, it seems that support they have just doesn't seem to work. Based on what i read here.

Amazon has this pesky problem with simucasts taking a few days to appear on their streaming platform despite the episode being out. Beatless and Killing Bites which are usually out on Friday hadn't shown up on their service as late as Saturday evening last I checked. I have't checked this morning yet.

So they got rid of the anime channel as in the double pay wall and still doing future simulcast or just rolled everything back into the bulk and not messing with it anymore?

I just got off the phone with Amazon's customer service. After putting me on hold for one minute the guy said he doesn't know when episode 8 will be released and it depends on the Video department.

I don't know exactly when it went up, but I did watch it on Amazon a few hours ago, so it's up now.

It went up on Tuesday afternoon some time. I complained to support for misleading me about it going up on Sunday and they were nice enough to grant me a promo credit for my troubles.

I encourage others to complain next time they are late, as it pays to in more ways than one.
