Amazon Prime Competing with Netflix

Posted by on February 22, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Yesterday I posted that Redbox will be jumping into the online streaming game. Amazon has always offered online streaming but you had to rent the titles similar to iTunes. Starting today though any one that has a paid for Prime account (excluding students) and live in the US you have access to over 5,000 titles to stream from instantly for free. Amazon Prime is $79/year compare that to the new only streaming plan from Netflix at $95.88/year. This is just an added bonus to the awesome perks of Amazon Prime, free 2 day shipping and overnight shipping for $3.99. If anyone can create competition for Netflix it’ll be Amazon.
