Amazon Instant Video Now Available on Xbox 360

May 29, 2012 by

If you’re like me, you were so very envious when PlayStation 3 added Amazon Instant Video support and left the Xbox 360 behind on streaming options. Well, good news, the Xbox 360 has finally been updated with support for Amazon Instant Video. Here’s a press release from Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon:

Dear Customers,

You can already stream Prime Instant Videos on your Kindle Fire, your PlayStation 3, your Roku, and hundreds of other TVs, Blu-ray players, and set-top boxes. Today, we’re excited to announce that the Xbox 360 joins the fold.

We’ve also just added a new Watchlist feature, which helps you keep track of the movies and TV episodes you want to view later. You can add favorites and new discoveries to your list—then come back anytime to watch instantly. Try it on your Xbox 360, Kindle Fire, or your browser on PC & Mac … and Watchlist is coming soon to PlayStation 3 and Roku.

With instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV episodes, Free Two-Day Shipping on millions of items, and over 145,000 Kindle books to borrow for free from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, Amazon Prime is an outstanding value and remains only $79 a year. Millions of people have already joined Prime. You can sign up for a one-month free trial today.

Thanks for being a customer.

Jeff Bezos

Founder & CEO
