Roku has stepped up its programming offerings yet again, this time with the help of Amazon.
If you happen to have a Roku set-top box and you're an Amazon Prime member, then you're in luck. The Amazon Instant Video channel will now connect to the Prime video library starting today.
Amazon Prime membership costs $79 per year - unless of course you have an .edu e-mail address, in which case you can get one year of membership for free. Amazon also offers a free 30-day Prime trial. However, Engadget is reporting that the Prime Instant Video service is only available to paid members, so if any of you students can actually access it, please let us know in the TalkBack section.
