Over the past couple years Amazon has become a big part in my cord cutting journey. With all of the great kids shows and now new Amazon originals, it’s a must have for any fan of tv and movies. So for the next 24 hours, Amazon has put prime on sale for $72 (in celebration of the 2 Wins at the 72nd Annual Golden Globes)!

Here are the official details: Today (Saturday January 24, 2015) from 12:01 a.m., ET, through 11:59 p.m., PT, new members can join Amazon Prime for $72 for the first year and enjoy member-only benefits and content. Including: FREE Two-Day Shipping on millions of items, Unlimited, ad-free access to over a million songs, Instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video, Free unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud Drive and Read free books each month through Kindle First and the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. Kind of a sweet deal when you look at all the stuff you get for the year. Seriously if you haven’t signed up, you should give it a try with this sale (they don’t come around very often!)

Netflix App on AppleTV now allows profiles!

We use the Netflix app on our AppleTV nightly & honestly we have just gotten use to our recommendations looking a bit like this:

With a toddler you just naturally giveaway certain things in your life. Little did I know it was going to be my Netflix profile. So imagine my surprise and delight when I logged in today and saw this!

Yep the Netflix app on AppleTV (and PS3) now allows you to select a different profile!

I’ve checked the Netflix app on my iPad and this feature isn’t there yet. I will continue test some of the other places I’ve used the Netflix app (my PS3 & Roku box) to see if profiles is an option there as well, but for not it’s just AppleTV. Update: PS3 has been added and now can use profiles!

So we have designated my main account as Mateo’s (my son) and Marc’s account is ours. Once profiles can be access via the iPad app, I will be adding a profile for my son & slowly take back mine (though I don’t know if Netflix will ever believe me when I said I don’t like Super Why :)

If your not sure how to add a new profile, here are the steps (because it’s almost impossible to find!)

You can add up to five profiles at any time on the website by clicking Manage Profiles in the menu in the top right hand corner of your screen or in Your Account.

On the PS3 you can add additional profiles by pressing the triangle button to bring up the profiles screen.

By creating a profile, you are agreeing to Netflix collecting the information you provide in establishing the profile and understand that Netflix will associate ratings provided by the Profile member with the information you provide.
