All Amazon.com Customer,
Good news! You no longer need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to watch Amazon Prime Instant Video.
If you have an Amazon Prime membership, and an internet-connected Xbox, you can now enjoy unlimited streaming of hit movies and TV shows with no additional Xbox Live Gold subscription.
Amazon Prime Instant Video includes 40,000 titles, with dozens of iconic HBO series like “The Sopranos,” “The Wire,” “East Bound and Down,” “Rome,” and “True Blood Season 1-3”–amazing shows that you won’t find on Netflix.
Start watching on your internet-connected Xbox 360 and Xbox One today.
As mentioned in a … Prior Post … we did this week, enjoy FREE Netflix, Hulu Plus, MLBTV and more this weekend on Xbox is not just a rumor, it’s a fact. While you’d usually need a Gold membership and a subscription to app services, Microsoft is changing the rules for just one weekend. Starting tonight and lasting until Monday, April 23, 2012, anyone with an Xbox 360 and an Internet connection can access Xbox Live Gold’s entertainment apps, free of charge. Furthermore, the Netflix, Hulu Plus, MLBTV, and Epix apps will be waiving subscription fees during this time.
The Xbox 360 has been trying to pitch itself as more of a multimedia machine than a dedicated gaming console for a while now, and this seems like a logical step to whet consumers’ appetites for media consumption. Microsoft has unlocked 21 services ranging from Dailymotion to ESPN to UFC. While most of the apps are for video content (including Vudu, SyFy, and VEVO), some are music services (last.fm and iHeartRadio).
Aside from the four apps mentioned above, regular subscription fees still apply for the others, especially Verizon and Xfinity TV, which require users to be existing cable subscribers with those companies. On the other hand, many of the other services are free to begin with, save for the Gold membership, so there should be plenty of content to play around with over the course of four days. Be aware that some of the “free” services will be offering trial subscriptions only for new members, so be sure to read that fine print. This offer applies specifically to the U.S., but Europe will be getting a similar deal this weekend, too.
