The Amazon affiliate program has announced Amazon Video On Demand, where customers can instantly watch movies and television shows commercial-free on Macs or PCs.
Affiliates earn 10% on all movies, TV seasons, and TV episodes, and creative includes Amazon Video On Demandâ€™s Preview Player widget, which enables you to add movie trailers to your site.
In order to encourage site visitors to decide to rent or purchase a movie or TV show, the first two minutes of videos automatically play at no charge to customers when they visit the product detail page.
At any time during this 2-minute viewing period, customers can choose to purchase or rent the title to watch it in its entirety.
Also, TiVo customers can download movies and TV shows to their TiVo DVR and watch on their TVs.
So you can watch on TV with TiVo or download to a PC, but I don’t see any mention of downloading to an iPod, Blackberry, etc.
Looks like an attractive offer, but I can’t see using it myself unless I can take the movies and shows on my phone or iPod.
