    Received e-mail today looks like there will be more free programs available for Amazon prime members. Disney-ABC joins recently announced deals with FOX, CBS, NBC-Universal, and PBS

    I tend to flip back and forth between my NetFlix account and Prime. However, I tend to use Prime a lot less because they don't have a Queue feature for the subscription movies. They really need to get that part working if they ever want to be a serious competitor to NetFlix.

    I missed the first season of X-Files. As an Amazon Prime, I can now catch it at no cost.

    In order to watch Amazon Prime through your home theatre system don't you need to buy a special adaptor from Amazon?

    I have a Sammy bluray that does not stream Amazon and I would have to buy anything else like a Roke or the Amazon box.

    I have a Roku and have Amazon Prime Instant Video, but I rarely use it. My biggest gripe with it is that I can't create a queue like I can with Netflix. I want to be able to build up my own personal library of movies/shows I like using my browser, then go to Roku and find and play them. From what I've seen (months ago, the last time I tried), all I could do was browse the pre-defined categories but I there was no way to mark something to save for later.... Very inconvenient.

    I signed up for the trial of Amazon Prime yesterday.

    I can play the streaming videos through my Logitech Revue, but I have to navigate the Amazon.com web site using the Chrome browser in the Revue to get to the videos. Then I had to click the "Play" button about three times before the movie started.

    It played okay, but stuttered a couple of times. And the Revue's screen saver popped up in the middle of the movie.

    Like Dish/Blockbuster, Amazon has a long way to go to match the Netflix experience.

    Amazon movies play directly on Roku, just like on Netflix - no pc involved, but Amazon isn't as well organized.
