Stream Amazon Unbox Video to your Xbox 360

Illustration for article titled Stream Amazon Unbox Video to your Xbox 360

Bought some movies from Amazon's Unbox Video store but can't figure out how to get it on your TV? Grab your Xbox 360, because it's time to get streaming.


1. Download an Unbox video to your Media Center PC.
2. From the Xbox 360 Dashboard, go to the Media blade and select Media Center. Your Xbox will connect to your Media Center PC.
3. Select "My Videos" and then "Amazon" to see all of your Unbox videos.
4. Choose your Unbox video and enjoy!


Thanks to the recent release of Windows Media Player 11, it may be possible to stream WMV files to your 360 without actually having a Windows XP Media Center PC. We'll look into it, but streaming to 360 fills in the big hole in Amazon's service to allow content to be viewed on TVs. Now to fill in all the other holes.

Xbox 360 + Unbox = TV

I remember reading somewhere that the ability to stream WMV from a non-MCE Windows PC via WMP 11 will be part of the Nov dashboard update.
