    I'm looking at it now ... What makes it so cool? Looks like a bazillion other music services.

    Amazon Prime Music!

    The most obvious immediate benefit is that persons already subscribing
    to Amazon Prime get it for no additional cost.

    I find Amazon Prime movies to be so horribly unusable that I never watch anything on it. Can't imagine the music service would be anything better. The primary purpose of the Prime movies seems to be to sell you DVDs.

    Their movie app on my tv is basically unusable but the one on my Sony bluray player isn't too bad. Made it at least another option to Netflix.

    Tapatalk gave me this handy App for my Nexus 7 :-)
    If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use is the rule.

    Amazon Prime Music

    I just took a look at the music library that Amazon is offering and there are many artists and albums that I like. I would love to be able to play them on my SBT.

    Please someone help create an app.

    My experience with the video service has been OK. We don't use it much,
    but the streams have been reliable and of good quality. We use their
    PS3 app for viewing. We've watched mostly TV shows: Alpha House and
    Orphan Black.

    At first glance the music service is a little underwhelming. The seem
    to be focused on big name artists, and selected tracks. Not my area of
    interest. Maybe it will improve.

    One nice thing they did was to preload a "Library" page in the mobile
    app with music I'd purchased on physical formats over the last few
    years. That's actually pretty handy.

    It's always nice to have options, but given where they are and the fact
    that I'm enjoying my Beats subscription, I don't see myself using Amazon
    Music all that much.

    Interesting -- I've found Amazaon prime movies work fine on my iPad, computer, or on my tv via a Roku box. The menu/selection functions fine and haven't had issues with the streaming itself. The current music selection seems much less extensive than most other services (they boast "over a million songs", which is a small fraction of Spotify, Rhapsody, and probably others).
