PlayStation 3 Gets Amazon Instant Video

Today, seemingly out of nowhere, Sony added Amazon Instant Video to its streaming video service lineup. Amazon Instant Video adds the online retailers constantly growing library of movies and TV shows to the number of titles you can stream on your PS3.

Amazon Instant Video on the PS3 offers all the same functions you’d expect from the standard browser experience. 17,000 titles are available to people who pony up $79 a year for an Amazon Prime subscription. Roughly 120,000 movies and shows available for purchase and/or  rental on a per title bases. Like Netflix, you can begin a movie on you computer and finish it on your PS3.

Cinema Now, Vudu, Hulu, Amazon Instant, Netflix, and Sony’s own video store now make up streaming video services available on the PS3.
