Amazon Prime Instant Video vs the competition

Posted in Amazon by Conner Flynn on February 24th, 2011

Amazon’s Prime Instant Video service is here, but how does its content measure up to the competition? Clicker.com has the answers and has created this handy chart to help sort out the detail. Netflix has a lot more content right now, that’s for sure, but the Amazon service compares more closely to Hulu Plus than anything else.

It’s a good start for Amazon though even though Amazon’s movie selections are lacking in high profile movies not already on Netflix, it does have some unavailable episodes of Mister Rogers Neighborhood, Bonanza and Dr. Who (1963), so that’s something. It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

Amazon Prime users see free unlimited movie streaming

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.
