PS3: The First Console to Offer Amazon Instant Video

Jack Buser's Avatar Posted by 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!

I still don’t have the Amazon app available to me on my XMB. Yes, I’m looking at the tv/video services spot. I have Netflix, so I know where to look. It’s not there, just Netflix and the “my channels” thing. I did some googling and found one comment, I think it was even on this blog somewhere, that said the psn store would update with this available as a download too. But I’ve done “amazon app” and “amazon instant video” searches on the psn store and it comes up empty. How can I get this? I’ve had Prime since it started and want to take advantage.

Was there some kind of deadline for clicking the icon to start the download? I was out of town when this happened for about a week. Am I out of luck now?

okay, well, I thought about looking at the “what’s new” section on the xmb. it was there with a direct link to the store page for the app. so, that made me want to do a search on the store again to see what i got. “Amazon instant video” got me the app as the first result listed. So I’m good now. But I swear, it was not there last night. :( & :)
