Here’s another reason why Microsoft is turning Xbox into a brand that encompasses the company’s entertainment services. Amazon Instant Video is now available on the Xbox 360. Anyone can download it, but you won’t be able to use it unless you are a Xbox Live Gold subscriber.
Amazon Instant Video is an on-demand service that offers thousands of television shows and movies. You can also get access to the Amazon Prime Instant Video service if you are an Amazon Prime member. There is a ton of of content available through the Prime Instant Library, but you have to pay $79 a year to gain access to it. You can always sign up for a free month of Amazon Prime if you hadn’t done it before.
If you’re already an Amazon Prime member, you can get a free month of Xbox Live Gold as well.
