I was checking it out shortly after it went live, not sure what to say. Its nice and works perfectly, and the fact it goes right with Prime is even more awesome. however the movie selection sucks hardcore.

What's Prime?

I can't se this being a huge success until they can get it installed on set top boxes.

Prime is a service that Amazon offers for $79/month. It allows members to get free two-day shipping (faster than the normal free shipping), plus your order doesn't have to be $25 minimum to get that free shipping. Plus other little extras like video games, you can get those with release-date delivery free of charge if you're a member of Prime. And now, it includes the video streaming.

Gotcha - thanks for the explanation. You'd have to be a pretty hardcore Amazon customer to pay that kind of money.

Also, Amazon already began rolling out set top boxes a while ago haha. They have Amazon Unbox. You can install it on your computer or buy an actual player. They are also pushing it on Blu Ray players (it somewhat already hit PS3, but you currently have to pay for it.)

if they really wanted to, they are prepared to go to war.

They are offering a free 30 day trial, so everyone can watch. Also, if you are a student with a .edu email address, Prim is free!

That's pretty cool - Problem is I'm in Canada and I'd bet the farm that I'm not allowed to participate in such fun things.

They have all kinds of ways for you to get it for free. They had one for moms too, teens, and so on.

I got an Amazon Credit Card now so ill be buying even more from them haha.

I already used a trial from them some months ago when I ordered a bunch of games. Doubt It will let me do it again. =/
