-The Amazon Unbox Team
To get started, why not try to download just 1 video to test out the service like this one – it’s the season premiere of the TV show Jericho which is based on a story where after mushroom clouds appear on the horizon, fear of the unknown propels Jericho into social, psychological and physical mayhem when all communication and power is shut down. The town starts to come apart at the seams as terror, anger and confusion bring out the very worst in some residents. Jake Green, the prodigal son of the town’s mayor, becomes a reluctant hero when a school bus crashes as a result of the explosion.
With almost 8,000 different videos you can download, you won’t be stuck resorting to “Live TV” when you’ve watched everything on your Tivo!
