Amazon today announced a new deal with Discovery Networks to bring nearly 3,000 more titles to Amazon’s Prime Instant Video ‘free’ streaming service. I put ‘free’ in quotes since it requires an Amazon Prime membership, but it is free to all Prime members. That brings the total to more than 17,000 streaming titles. The Discovery Networks include Discovery, TLC, Animal Planet, and Science, so you get content from all of them.
If you don’t already have an Amazon Prime membership you can try it free for a month, then it is $79 a year. And you get more than free streaming video, you get free two-day shipping on all of your orders and free book each month to borrow from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
Now if only TiVo would get around to the promised support for Prime Instant Video.
