Look out Netflix, Amazon announced today that Amazon Prime Members now get free access to its instant streaming service for TV and movies. Amazon Prime members pay $79 a year for free two day shipping on all orders.
While not as robust as Netflix, the Amazon streaming library includes a healthy 5,000 titles, and we assume that with this move, Amazon will look to acquire more titles. Available films include: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo film trilogy, Amadeus, Syriana and Chariots of Fire.
Robbie Schwietzer, VP of Amazon Prime had this statement: “Adding unlimited instant access to thousands of movies and TV shows at no additional cost is a great way to give members even more value for their $79 annual Amazon Prime membership.”
