The Amazon Video On Demand widget allows customers to search, browse, and rent or purchase from Amazon’s digital video catalog directly from their Samsung HDTV. Amazon’s catalog includes over 50,000 titles with over 2,000 in high definition, and features new-release movies and “day after” broadcast TV episodes.
