Amazon’s Unbox downloadable video service now works on TiVo. The video library leaves a lot to be desired right now. (The Illusionist and Prison Break? Yeah, no thanks.) You’ll get no deal on the prices, either: $9.99 to buy a movie and $1.99 per one-month rental, though you should expect to pay more for “hits.” For example, that feel-good dark comedy Little Miss Sunshine will set you back $3.99 for a one-month rental.
We’re not all sour grapes. Videos can be re-downloaded over and over again to any of your registered devices. Also, if you sign up before April 30 you get a $15 credit. Cool, but not nearly as cool as cruising Usenet.
