I suspect I'll get TD, technically not a deal but adds value. I'm sure someone will use it.

" The Google Cast extension can cast any tab with any content, so almost any web video will work, not just the ones on Amazon."

Disadvantages of browser casting

This solution will work to get Amazon Instant Video on your Chromecast or Android TV, but it’s less ideal than a dedicated app. For starters, the video quality tops out at 720p, which is unfortunate since most Amazon videos are available in 1080p if your Internet connection supports it. And even at the lower resolution, the bitrate is considerably lower than you might be used to, resulting in more video artifacts, extra pixelation, low-quality audio, and occasionally complete signal dropouts."

thanks, but no thanks.
