Panasonic announced today that the full line of VIERA Cast enabled Blu-ray players have full access to Amazon’s Video On Demand service. The update was pushed out last night automatically. Just register your Blu-ray player with the Amazon service and you can start enjoying streaming content immediately.
The new service will allow customers to:
- Browse and shop for their favorite movies and TV shows from Amazon Video On Demand’s selection of more than 45,000 commercial-free titles, including the latest new releases and over 1000 titles in HD.
- Enjoy instant playback streamed to your player, no downloading, no waiting and no subscription fees.
- Access and add to their virtual library of purchases, via Amazon Video On Demand’s Your Video Library, and re-watch them on any of Panasonic’s critically acclaimed line of VIERA Cast-enabled Blu-ray Disc players or online with a PC, MAC or other compatible device.
While an internet connection is of course required to make use of the service, VIERA Cast is available on all of the company’s 2009 Blu-ray players including the B15 portable player. Never again will you be stuck watching local programming while staying in a hotel room across the country! Not that you were before but at least now you don’t have to pack the discs with you if you don’t have the room.
