I'd love to see any site that just lists all the Amazon Prime titles. On the Amazon site, it can show so few on a page, it's hard to find what's there. I'm currently watching "Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles" on Amazon Prime. I started it on NetFlix but it expired soon after I started.
Subtitles, etc definitely not on old (current) hardware. Read for yourself but it sounds to me like new hardware required for new Netflix streaming format. From Roku forums: "Roku 2 Netflix features and previous generation Roku players Postby RokuTom » Fri Jul 22, 2011 7:29 pm Hi everyone, Roku 2 players take advantage of new encodings from Netflix that make several new features possible in the Netflix app: • Adaptive bitrate streaming. That means the quality of the video signal will adjust constantly to the speed of your Internet connection. • 1080p support for TVs that support 1080p. • Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 pass-through to home theater receivers. • Subtitles. Unfortunately, these new encodings will not be supported on previous generation Roku players. We try to ensure that new features in a channel are supported on all previous generations of players. However, this is not always possible. Thank you for understanding. Please write us at if you have additional comments or suggestions you want to share. Tom Markworth, Director of Product Management on behalf of the Roku team"
