Amazon rolling out Netflix-like unlimited video streaming for Prime subscribers

submitted on January 31, 2011 by orangearrows in "Products / Gadgets"
This will be a great deal if it happens. Will make the $79/ year PRIME fee - SUPER ATTRACTIVE.

Rumors of Amazon either purchasing Netflix or launching a competing option have been circling and now one of our readers says he's seeing an unlimited video streaming section to complement the current Amazon VOD options. That's a nice bonus for the $79 / year package that currently adds a few free shipping bonuses and it would be cheaper on a yearly basis than Netflix's Watch Instantly ($95.88.)

    This would be a great deal for $79 a year and along with Prime, it makes it even sweeter Big Grin

    Prime VOD is now available for free for PAID Amazone Prime memberships.

    Or if you are in the mom's club and buy $25/month from the baby store, it extends your PRIME one month. Heck, if you're gonna buy wipes and stuff (whether you have a kid or not) then this triples the deal!

      I was hoping for this bonus too. We buy a lot of diapers/wipes from Amazon. Sad

    Well, my DVD player doesn't support Amazon streaming video (just Blockbuster, Netflix, and YouTube) and it sucks to have to watch the movies on a laptop.

    Is at least the movie selection good? I read it is only around 1000 titles.

      Maybe you can download it? My TV was able to add the Amazon Video App.

      They have 5000 titles and counting.

      The News coupled with Libya sure has hurt the Netflix Stock
