Yeah, for 79.00USD a year you can join Amazon Prime and get over 100,000 TV shows and Movies to download. But they are not all the good ones, they still are 1.99 and 3.99 each for a certain time period.

Incorrect. Prime videos are free, period. But they are also available to rent for non-prime users. Only Prime members will see the free selection on the video’s product page. Prime membership also gets you free 2-day shipping on most orders.

Now if they only looked more like a video store than a WalMart…

You are correct CDan, my mistake, I am a Prime member for awhile now but do not download many movies, I use primarily for the free 2 day shipping.:bigsmile:

There’s actually a fair amount of decent stuff available in Prime streaming, lots of BBC TV shows. And now they’ve added the entire Star Trek franchise, Cheers and more.

My only gripe is that Amazon Prime doesn’t allow the creation of any sort of library or queue of free titles. You have to search every time you want to watch something. A PITA for TV series.

Is this another Amazon US only service??

Yeah, the ‘free’ streams come with Prime membership ($79 a year and upgrades Amazon shipping to free 2nd day).

Put it this way: You must have a registered account with a US mailing address and billing address, plus connect through a US server.

Thanx folks. And the MPAA wonders why people pirate stuff when there is no legit way of getting content…

I’ve used Netflix instant videos, Hulu Plus and Amazon Prime Instant Videos. Amazon as the worst selection out of all of them and I rarely find interesting things to watch on there. Obviously this is personal preference taste, but I’m hoping that they will continue to add more “free” Prime Instant Videos and continue to bolster their catalog.
