Amazon’s new free video streaming works on Android, not iOS

Amazon introduced a new online streaming video service free to its Prime program members (pay $80 a year and get free two-day shipping on orders). Engadget found the Flash-based service works fine on Android phones. Apple's iPhone and iPad have no flash.

Next up was an Android device running Flash and, sure enough, it worked on there too -- well, the video plays. How well it plays will largely depend on your phone's processor and your current connection. Content ranged from slideshow to acceptable on the first-gen Droid we spun it up on. We also have confirmation that this service works on the Amazon Instant Channel onĀ Roku and we're guessing just about anything else that'll do Amazon Instant is good to go.
