Amazon Instant Video Lands on the Playstation 3!

One of the best things about the Kindle Fire and Roku for me is the Amazon Instant Video service tied in with my Amazon Prime membership. I love all of the available movies and shows, and made frequent use of them. Now Amazon is extending the reach of the service – to the Playstation 3! Here are some details:

Good news — Prime Instant Video is now available on PlayStation 3. Since launching a year ago, we’ve more than tripled our library, including titles such as Sons of Anarchy, Downton Abbey, Lost, Glee, 24, Deadliest Catch, SpongeBob SquarePants, Office Space, The Graduate, The Last Emperor, The Thin Red Line, The Last of the Mohicans, and Brokeback Mountain.

Prime members get unlimited instant streaming of these titles and 17,000 more. If you’re already a Prime member, just register your PlayStation 3 and start watching now. If not, start your one-month free trial of Amazon Prime today.

With free two-day shipping on millions of items, access to thousands of books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, and instant streaming of thousands of Prime Instant Videos, Prime is an outstanding value and remains only $79 a year.

You can also rent or buy more than 120,000 videos, including new release movies and next-day TV shows, right from your PlayStation 3 with Amazon Instant Video. If you haven’t tried Amazon Instant Video, we’ve made the first episode of more than 100 TV shows free of charge for this week only, available to Prime and non-Prime customers.

Surveys have noted that more people are using consoles for general home entertainment than for gaming, so this is a great move for both Sony and Amazon!

As noted, you can get the first episode of more than 100 TV shows free of charge for this week only – so head to Amazon and check it out!

Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
