As far as I researched, you can't stream VOD movies directly to a ps3. But you can use a pc through a website called "Playon" to your ps3.
http://www.playon.tv/playon. It has a 2 week free trial, then a one time fee around $20. discounts available. I used it last night, but it was kinda "jerky" because you have to have a great internet connection (a min of 1.5mbps for standard movies and min of 2.5 for Blu-ray). I would say if you have a high speed internet connection, you should be good using this method.

Some of the Blu-ray dics have the ability to go on the internet and play certain content, via Blu-ray java. The people who came up with the Blu-ray standard, said that all devices that have Blu-ray players in them must able to go on the internet. Since Sony didn't incorporate the Blu-ray Java in their cross bar, the Netflix folks made a Blu-ray disc that takes advantage of this. If you had a Blu-ray burner, you could actually place a Blu-ray Java web browser on a disc. This way you could watch Hulu for free, and not play Sony anything for watching regular TV shows.

I am a Netflix subscriber and use my PS3 - 60 gig to watch movies, the movies are around DVD quality. The only complaint that I'm having, is about my PS3. There are way too many people on the PS3 forums complaining about their PS3's being bricked after updating their systems. This covers the 1st released PS3's all the way to the newer PS3 slims. There seems to be a problem with the updates, so I'm waiting to update mine.

Has there been any progress made with respect to streaming Amazon movies via PS3 to your TV?

Sony probably won't make an app for Amazon because of direct competition.

The question was, does Amazon Video on Demand work using the PS3 console. As December 25, 2010, the answer is no. The question was not how great Netflix is, or why you have PS3. Thanks and Merry Christmas ADD Nation...

Other Ways to Watch Amazon Video On Demand on Your TV-
Your XBOX 360 will play Amazon Video On Demand videos that have been downloaded to your PC.
If you have a Windows Media Center PC connected to your TV, you can watch your downloads on the TV using Windows Media Center functionality.
Watch Amazon Video On Demand by connecting your PC directly to your TV.

I'm also curious, now that some streaming VOD content is available fee to Prime members. Is there any way to watch Amazon VOD content on Xbox 360 or PS3 aside from having to purchase the paid versions of TVersity or PlaOn?

I'm convinced playon's jerky performance is design flaw and not based on connection. I gave it a whirl twice over the course of two years and was extremely disappointed with its inability to perform as promised. Also, it had an occurance of occasionally glitching up the transcode somehow so the playstation was just screaming high pitched jibberish audio that hurt the ears. IMO, PlayOn is a great idea, somehow poorly implemented and never delivering a service one could claim as "reliable" or even really "functional."

Thanks for the playon idea. I downloaded it today and I am going to check it out. Especially since Netflix is charging people an arm and a leg for crap, I think Amazon video is worth a try.
