Well this is certainly big news for Netflix’s biggest competitor. Amazon Prime, which is Amazon’s streaming movie service is now available via the Xbox. It was also recently announced that it was available on the PS3. I assume the Wii is next and maybe Apple TV? I am still bummed that I cannot watch it via my iPad or Android phone.
For those that do not know Amazon Prime is $79 a year. In addition to streaming video, you get free 2 day shipping on most amazon products (anything that is eligible for free $25 shipping you would get free 2 day), and you get one free Kindle book a month (to rent only). It actually a really good deal for those that use Amazon. And if you are a student or mother you even get a cheaper rate.
