New: Amazon Video on Demand


Amazon just announced a new video on demand feature, replacing their Unbox service.

There are a number of ways to watch your Amazon Video On Demand movies and TV shows on your television set. If you have a broadband-connected Compatible Device such as a TiVo or Sony BRAVIA Internet Video Link, you can purchase and watch titles directly on your TV. Or you can hook up your PC to your TV via any number of other devices or cabling options.

In addition to watching instantly online, you can also download videos from Amazon Video On Demand to your Windows PC and watch them with the Unbox Video Player or with a compatible portable video device. They won’t play on iPods though. And if you are owner of an Xbox, you’ll be excited to hear that you can access Amazon Video on demand from your console.

    DIY Movie Decapitation


    What about a little weekend project?

    Erik Beck from Indy Mogul posted an Instructable on making a cheap yet effective decapitation effect for your next slasher movie. The ingredients include: a test dummy, fake head (we used styrofoam), foam, liquid latex (preferably in a skin color), garden sprayer, valve, 6 bottles of food coloring, and a balloon.

    Denver Airport already offers free Wifi, and now they’ve teamed up Disney/ABC to offer movie downloads through their network. I wish I could tell you the movie service is free… but still, it’s a step in the right direction.

    Hulu Beta Invites



    Watch your favorite TV shows like The Simpsons or Scrubs on Hulu for free. Hulu is a new streaming video site, still under beta and inaccessible without an invite. If you’re not located in the US, don’t get too excited – Hulu only streams to users from the United States. Which sucks for Criticker headquarters. I guess I should just go and look at some more rainbows.

    Good thing, Criticker knows where to find those invites. Hurry though – only 1800 are available.
