Amazon Prime Instant Video is the streaming-video component of Amazon Prime. Like Netflix and Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime offers unlimited streaming of tens of thousands of movies and TV shows. The user interface on the web and on the apps are quite horrible! Something else that is horrible is the amount of buffering on the apps. On the Roku player the service was completely unusable but the web works quite well.
For $99 per year the movies and most importantly you get two-day shipping on Amazon purchases for no additional charge. $99 may sound like a lot of money but if you use Amazon a lot and who doesn’t it really is quite the bargain.
