Amazon launches streaming video service

Amazon has officially launched their streaming service as one of the benefits of being a Prime member. That means Amazon Prime members who pay $79 per year to get unlimited free two-day shipping for products will now get access to at least 5,000 streaming movies and TV episodes. The titles are also commercial-free with no limitations on the number of titles you watch.

The streaming service, dubbed “Instant Videos” on Amazon, works on both PC and Mac platforms as well as internet-connected TVs, STBs, and BD players. (The company says their service works on close to 200 devices.)

Amazon boasts such titles as “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” “Amadeus,” “Syriana,” and “March of the Penquins.” Many of the titles are also offered in “HD” quality, including all the movies listed here.

We were pretty certain Amazon was close to launching the “Instant Videos” service when screen shots leaked last month showing “The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest” as a streaming title at no extra charge to Prime customers. (Just a note: Amazon also offers free streaming of select titles with the purchase of the same title on DVD or Blu-ray Disc.)

Amazon is currently offering a free one month trial of the Prime service which includes unlimited streaming, free two-day shipping, and one-day shipping for $3.99 per item.
