Amazon adding free streaming movies to Amazon Prime membership

$79 a year gets you all of the Amazon prime benefits plus streaming movies.  At least that is what the Beezus message on their page says.

I Just Tested It, It Works.

I Also Have my Computer Hooked To My 52 Inch TV So I Can Flick My AB Switch And Watch The Picture On My Wide Screen TV.

I Wonder If Tivo Will Allow Users To Log-In To Download\Stream Free Videos.

In theory it works with my Roku.  Haven't had a chance to try it yet.

This From This Article: "It doesn't show up on my TiVo or Roku yet."

"Update: Roku just sent over a note indicating that the service is in fact live on their boxes. Good news, but I still don’t see it. It’s probably my fault somehow…"

To Tell You The Truth I Never Heard Of A "Roku" Until You Said Something.

So I Just Bought One After Doing Some Reading.

I was trying to find out if the Roku had a buffer, and how big it was., But could not find anything.

I am waiting on the XDS Model, not sure how long it takes to get.

I Got My Roku Box

Amazon Prime Works, The Roku Interface Kind Of Sucks, But It Works.
