Just spent the last 15-20 minutes playing with Amazon Instant Video on the PS3. Truly, truly Kick Ass. (Y)
Especially since me and the wife especially let go of Netflix, really great to have this as an option on the PS3.
Looks and performs great as well. UI is nice and responsive (when I first launched the app, it took about 3 seconds to kick in, once it did, worked like butter.
Any time I can watch Arrested Development Season 1 for free on my PS3, nevermind a whole lot of other videos, it is a definite win.
Really sweet this is now an option.

I am just wondering if there is a limit to how many devices one can have registered under Amazon's Instant Video Service.
I currently have 3 devices, plan to register a 4th (my other PS3 upstairs), so hoping I do not push the limit or something, as one of the devices is my parents Roku I got them for XMas in 2010, and I know they use the hell out of it, so them keeping it is most important to me.

But really a kick ass app to have.

Great app. I've been ignoring Amazon's video services even though I have Prime because I didn't want to watch anything on my laptop. This solves that problem. I'm one step closer to just cancelling my cable subscription and sticking with this, Netflix and Hulu.

Great to see this hitting the PS3, just a shame they don't do the same here in the UK. Sadly with their purchase of Lovefilm I think it's very unlikley that they will do so either. Given the poor quality of the streaming and pretty bad selection of stuff I cancelled my Lovefilm subscription a while ago.

Yes, what a shame if it doesn't come to the UK. I've cancelled my Netflix sub because the app just doesn't work properly (I often had to try at least three times before it would log in and then it was often flakey), and Lovefilm was simply very poor in every way, so looking for something to fill the hole...

I literally finished all three seasons on Netflix in about a week and a half.

I just checked it out myself....pretty nice! Especially considering how my ISP gave me a free speed-boost this afternoon out of the blue! (20 down, 2 up, was 10 down and 1 up) I'm loving it!

I wonder why they called it Amazon Instant Video, despite their acquisition of Love Film.

Different markets I guess, Lovefilm seems to be aimed at the UK market, this is in the US.
