PS3: The First Console to Offer Amazon Instant Video

Jack Buser's Avatar Posted by Jack Buser on Apr 03, 2012 // Senior Director, PlayStation Now

Hi again, PlayStation community. I’m here to bring some good news today: Amazon Instant Video is available now on PlayStation Network, making the PS3 the first and only video game console to offer the service! Head on over to the TV/Video Services category of the XMB, where you can download and install the new Amazon Instant Video app right now for free. Once you launch the app, you’ll have instant access to thousands of streaming and downloadable movies and TV shows for rental or purchase. There are more than 120,000 commercial-free movies and TV shows for rental or purchase, including new releases, classic favorites, major TV shows, full seasons and even new episodes of some of your favorite TV shows the day after they air. Many of the DVD and Blu-Ray titles on are also offered on Amazon Instant Video available through this new app.

If you’re an Amazon Prime member (I am!), you’ll also be able to watch as many of the more than 17,000 Prime Instant Videos as you can handle, at no additional cost. If you’re not yet an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial right there within the app or just sign up—it’s $79 per year and totally worth it.

Our own Jeff Rubenstein got an early look at the app, and he can walk you through it here:

We’re really excited to bring you yet another option for entertainment and one that you can only find on PS3!

@9: Of course not. doesn’t even have any digital distribution yet. Heck, you have to use just to download stuff for your Kindle.

I have read the first 50 comments and all everyone is talking about are Prime members. I am not a Prime member nor do I plan om an additional $70 a month. So how about me? What will this service do for me.
And normally I would be asking for HBOgo, too. Except my cable company doesn’t support it anyway so what’s the point. sigh
