Roku's site states that the Amazon Instant Video App lets you "enjoy new release movies and in-season TV shows in HD."
http://www.roku.com/channels#!detail...-instant-video

Amazon's site says "You can watch high-definition movies on your television through compatible devices including: Roku Digital Video Players, TiVo DVRs, Panasonic VIERA HDTVs and Blu-ray players, Samsung HDTVs, Vizio HDTVs, and Sony Bravia HDTVs and Blu-ray players."
http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...cId=1000364351

On Amazon's Roku page, it only mentions the Roku SD as not being able to stream Amazon Instant in HD:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...cId=1000776221
Please note that the Roku-SD (Model 1050) cannot play content in HD.

Note that Amazon's HD is limited to 720p:

A thread was just started to talk about Amazon Prime videos:

I stream HD just fine and I'm a prime member. I don't quite understand what you are asking.

Amazon Prime streams in HD, if your Internet bandwidth allows for it. Like many other streaming services, Amazon bases the resolution of what you receive on your Internet service speed.

Person of Interest (CBS) is now available for a la carte download

That includes Amazon, Itunes and I assume XBox video.

If you want to catch up and maybe missed a few episodes, here's your chance. Season 1 and 2 are available.

Hopefully, it'll also be added to Vudu. I already own the UV copy. But Vudu doesn't carry the show, so it's only available on the crappy Flixster apps.

You can say that again, Warner keeps confining a lot of their UV shows to their terrible Flixster service.

Amazon Instant Video has added Airplay support to their iOS app.

Amazon updates Instant Video to AirPlay shows onto Apple TV
The latest app update allows users to fling video from iPads or iPhones to television sets by way of Apple TV.

Apple diehards now have a way to fling their Amazon Instant Video to their television screens -- if they didn't have a TV that could already do that. Amazon's latest update of its Instant Video app for iOS adds the ability to watch videos on Apple TV via Airplay.

The update gives Amazon Instant Video watchers another way to watch shows and movies on their TVs, although Amazon's video content was already compatible with Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation. If Amazon's video audience is anything like Netflix's, people are already using those platforms most to get content beamed to the TV screen.

The app update also adds IMDB information and the ability to read customer reviews.

I noticed they've added more seasons of No Reservations. They have Seasons 4-11 listed, which is screwed up since there were only 9 seasons. Looks like a couple of those seasons are just a mix of random episodes.

Anyways, they've now got 98 episodes (out of 142) available for free Prime streaming.

The History channel series Vikings will be posted to Prime. Not sure when or if it will be the uncut version.

Re: Notable Amazon Instant Video Freebies, Discounts, New Additions

Guess this is the best spot for this. I had accumulated some instant video credit by choosing the "no-rush" shipping option over the last couple of months. Looking around for something to purchase and came across the complete first season of Alice for $11.99 (24 episodes). It's been on my wish list for some time, but the DVD set has never come down very far in price. With the credit I had, I was glad to purchase this. Perhaps someone else would be interested as well.
