Panasonic adds Amazon VOD to Blu-ray players

updated 08:45 am EDT, Tue August 4, 2009

Pana Amazon VOD for Blu

Panasonic this morning gave all of its Viera Cast Blu-ray players support for Amazon's Video On Demand service. The feature gives the company's more advanced disc readers from 2009, including its portable reader, the option of streaming purchases and rentals directly from the reader without needing the storage for a complete copy. Using VOD isn't dependent on having a matching Panasonic TV (which already supports the feature) and supports HD with a sufficiently fast connection.

An update to add Amazon's service should be available for free today and will sit alongside existing support for Picasa photos, YouTube videos and the other services already available on the Blu-ray players.
