Amazon VOD set to launch HD downloads as well According to cached web pages first spotted by NTV, it appears Amazon will be adding HD video downloads to its popular VOD service soon, with TV episodes costing $2.99 USD to purchase.
Possibly more interesting, it appears users can purchase HD "TV Passes," allowing buyers to watch an entire season of a show at a discount to buying each episode individually. It is unclear how long users will have to wait to download each episode after they have aired however.

Currently checking the cached pages will lead you back to the Amazon VOD home page, and HD downloads are still not available. It is only a matter of time until the official announcement comes however.

Last week, Apple unveiled similar services through their iTunes platform, however episodes cost $3.99 USD.
