Amazon’s plans for unlimited movie streaming similar to Netflix seems to be right on track as someone has spotted the service in action. At least one Amazon Prime subscriber has seen options in the Video On Demand section to stream movies and TV shows, even major recent releases, as part of the $79 yearly subscription. The catalog seen by this Engadget reader had 5,000 titles that show in 480p.
Amazon hasn’t confirmed these plans, and the unlimited VOD may be a trial that isn’t immediately ready to go live. Netflix’s streaming-only plan has a larger catalog but also costs $96 a year.
