Megazone dropped me a note that Amazon Unbox on TiVo has been enabled. I immediately registered and ordered A Scanner Darkly ($3.99) through Amazon’s web site – video to be shipped direct to my Series3 via the Internet. Within just a minute or two the download began…
If you register on Amazon to link your TiVo box(es) before April 30th, you’ll receive a $15 video credit. So we’ll find out pretty quickly (and for free) if the size of the library and if the video quality (SD) are both sufficient.
Movie rentals start at $1.99, while movie purchases start at $9.99. Television episode can be purchased for $1.99. The purchased content is available for re-download (to TiVo, PC, or portable) indefinitely via Amazon’s “Media Library.”
Some handy links:
FYI For each elapsed minute, my download is averaging a little more than 1 minute of content. It’s way too early to call it a rule, so I offer it only for comparative purposes. Also, my S3 bezel has a blue light to the right of the time… which must indicate an in-progress Internet download.
