We are currently looking at using Amazon Prime for Streaming instead of Netflix.  Has anyone done this?  The thing we liked about Netflix is that we could steam it to any console we had.  How do you do it with Amazon Prime?  We don't have a TV with wireless built in, so that is out of the question.

I have a sony bluray player that you can stream amazon prime through.  It's an app on the box just like netflix.  The selection is awful though, just like netflix.

I think it is far worse than netflix as far as selection goes.

I would agree with that

my Samsung LCD has a widget for Amazon Prime videos, but luckily it's close enough to my router I can run a cable to it no problem.  the only bad thing is the interface is painfully clunky.  I'm actually considering ditching my PS3 for a dedicated blu ray player with hopefully a better option for Prime watching.

I use PlayOn on my PC to share video from things like Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc and it works to access that stuff from any DLNA compatible device (my PS3, 360, Samsung TV and blu-ray player, etc).  The interface is definitely not great (basically just browsing folders), but it works for me to access all the stuff I want on any device, so that's really all I needed.
