Amazon opens video download shop

Amazon have launched Amazon unbox, a video download shop that offers movies, television shows and other videos. The downloaded content plays in Amazon’s own software player as well as on 6 portable devices including the Zen Vision, Zen Vision:M, Toshiba Gigabeat S, Archos AV 500 and 700, and iRiver PMC.

Similiar to iTunes, TV Shows cost $1.99 and movies cost from $7.99 to $14.99. A typical 1 hour movie is 1.2 Gig is size and customers can start watching the content while it is being downloaded.

I’m afraid this service is for US customers only. This usuage note from the Amazon unbox site:

Usage: US customers only. You can keep purchased videos on 2 PCs and 2 portable video players at the same time. Learn more

System Requirements: Requires Windows XP.
