Roku Player to Receive Video On Demand from Amazon

Your Roku Netflix Player will be generously upgraded early 2009. It will receive the Amazon’s Video On Demand service which is quite interesting. Amazon Video On Demand or Amazon Unbox is the first service to be available through Roku besides Netflix.

Amazon’s service will get you more than 40,000 movies and TV shows. They will be available on a pay-per-view basis instead of the regular flat-fee subscription of Netflix.

Remember the December firmware update? It promised the availability of future channels in early 2009. Well Amazon is the first one to arrive, what’s next?
