Netflix’s recent subscription price increases has streaming competitors whetting their lips. And latecomer to the game Amazon, with their Amazon Prime online streaming service, has steadily been growing their content.
Amazon Prime customers primarily become paying subscription customers for the free expedited shipping they’re then entitled to. But, they also get free access to a growing Amazon Prime streaming video library.
Just after Amazon’s deal with CBS content, they have announced a new licensing agreement with NBCUniversal, which will allow U.S. Amazon Prime customers to stream movies from Universal Pictures’ content library – bringing Amazon Prime’s instant library up to 9,000 total movies and television shows. This is still a ways away from Netflix’s 18,000 strong collection, but Amazon is getting there.
