Out of the Blue

As one of the last people on Earth who doesn't use Netflix, I don't have a lot of proper experience with streaming TV and movies, other than DirecTV's half-hearted on-demand service. As an Amazon Prime customer, I checked out their new free streaming service yesterday and was pretty impressed, as things streamed nicely and looked good with zero delays or hiccups. Having a very fast connection and an unusual love for b movies, I'm probably the perfect target for this service.

I would enjoy if Amazon Prime (and probably Netflix, et al.) didn't require Flash Player. Doesn't this rule it out for 99% of mobile devices, or is there an App for that? And then, is there a Windows Mobile 6.5 App for that? There would be nothing more satisfying than for me to stream a video over 3G that I actually wanted to see instead of someone else's "clips" or movie trailers.
