Wii owners get Amazon Instant Video If you are one of the many millions of Wii owners, don't worry, the world has not forgotten about you despite the launch of the Wii U.
Amazon has announced today that it will be bringing its streaming library to the aging console, just a couple of weeks after the Wii U got the same treatment.

The Instant Video library has 145,000 titles and 33,000 are free to you if you are a Prime member. Prime costs $79 per year and gives you access to streaming and free 2-day shipping on most items.

Nearly all existing features are also available including Whispersync, which let's you continue watching no matter what device you are on.

If you are a parent, Parental Controls and Amazon Kid Zone are available, as well.

The service is available today through the Wii Shop Channel.
