Amazon Instant Video now on Xbox 360 Amazon has announced today the launch of its Instant Video service on the Xbox 360.
With the release of the new app, Xbox Live Gold subscribers that also have Amazon Prime subscriptions will have access to all of Amazon's 17,000 movies and TV episodes.

Amazon Prime costs $79 per year and gives active Amazon buyers free 2-day shipping on most items and discounted $3.99 shipping on overnight or even same-day.

New to the Xbox is "Watchlist," which allows you to "manage your queue and purchased content into a playlist from your computer."

Additionally, you can use Kinect to navigate the app with voice and motion gestures or use the remote if you do not have a Kinect. You won't be able to purchase content through the app, just yet, but you can use WhisperSync, meaning you can start an episode/movie on your computer/Kindle Fire/etc and finish it on the 360 right from where you left off.
