Amazon Unbox Now Offers Videos Sans Computer

Amazon's Unbox feature, which gives TiVo subscribers the ability to play movies and television shows either rented or purchased on its site, has been a little slow to gain popularity but may pick up soon. The lacking interest in the feature could be due to the cost - it's about $1.99 to purchase television episodes and between $9.99 and $14.99 for most movies, while rental start at $1.99 - or the fact that users have to download the programs on their computers. This week, the company's announced a new enhancement, which better aligns with the "Unbox" name: You can now browse, purchase, and rent movies and television shows from Amazon Unbox on TiVo without leaving your couch and without using a PC.

According to a press release, the service is available to all broadband-connected TiVo Series2 and Series3 subscribers. They can choose from thousands of movies to rent from $1.99 to $3.99, purchase from $9.99 to $14.99, or thousands of television shows to purchase for $1.99 per episode.
