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.

Does anyone know if two accounts on one PS3 can have two different amazon Instant Video accounts? My boyfriend wants to purchase something from amazon Instant Video and pay for it himself, but when he tries to log into AIV, it says his PIN is incorrect. We are wondering if this is because *I* am the only one who has the AIV account synced since *I* downloaded it and connected my PS3... Any advice on this?

I know the Netflix app only allows one account, so assuming the Amazon app is the same.

You could just unregister it on the one account, register the other account, and keep doing it that way.

How do I unregister my PlayStation 3 from Amazon Instant Video?

When you are signed in to your Amazon.com account your registered PlayStation is listed at the top of this page. Click the unregister link next to your PlayStation to start the unregistration process. You will not be able to access Your Video Library or purchase Amazon Instant Video content from your PlayStation 3 after you unregister your PlayStation 3.

The above was taken from here.

What I would try first though is seeing if you can just register the other account.

How do I register my PlayStation 3 with Amazon.com?

To register, you need to link your PlayStation 3 to your Amazon.com account. If you don't have an Amazon.com account, you can create one for free during the registration process.

1. On your PlayStation 3, go to TV/Video Services > Amazon Instant Video. Click on "Register Your Device". You will see a 5-character code on the screen that you will use to complete your registration from a computer or tablet.

2. Visit our Registration page from your computer or tablet and complete your registration.

3. You are all set. Return to your PlayStation and start watching your favorite TV shows and movies with Amazon Instant Video. Simply go to TV/Video Services > Amazon Instant Video.

The above was taken from the same link.

Good luck, my guess would be they cannot be on the same console so will have to keep unregistering the different accounts as you want to use them.

He could always just pay you back and order it on your account.

Also, in classic chick on the interwebs fashion, since you're a lady w/ a PS3, if you and your bf don't work out,... sup?
