Amazon to Bring Streaming Movies, Shows to TVs


According to the WSJ, Amazon is following in Netflix and Hulu’s footsteps, prepping a service that will stream movies and TV shows for a flat monthly fee. This is interesting in theory, but in practice it will only be interesting if they can get a lot of content providers on board. If they’re just gonna clone Netflix’s selection, there’s no real point in paying for the same thing twice. We really need a fully-stocked streaming service that offers up as close to everything as possible! No one wants to pay the same price as a cable subscription to a half-dozen different services to get full content coverage.
