    Default Amazon Instant Video Now on Xbox 360

    werthliving.com

    Amazon May 29 said it is making available a new app for Amazon Instant Video that allows Xbox Live Gold subscribers access to movies, TV shows for transactional video-on-demand and streaming through the Xbox 360 console.

    The app also offers access to Prime Instant Video, including more than 17,000 movies and TV episodes available to stream on myriad consumer electronics devices at no additional cost to Prime members. Prime is a $79 annual membership program that affords users free and second-day shipping on most ecommerce purchases.

    The new Amazon Instant Video app allows users to browse and play videos with the Xbox 360 remote control or Kinect voice and gesture commands. New feature Whispersync lets customers switch from one device to another. Customers can start streaming a movie on Kindle Fire, then pick up right where they left off on their Xbox 360 console and avoid the frustration of having to find their spot.

    It works just like netflix. The interface is better then my Roku. If you have amazon prime you have a choice of a ton of free movies, much like netflix. Just another option to stream movies. I've used both and both are solid. -cc

    If you...
    1. Go over and set it up on their XBOX or
    2. Give them your login and password to Amazon.
