Are you an Amazon Prime customer, spending $79 a year for free expedited shipping on every order?
Well, if so, you're now getting a lot more than shipping; Amazon's also giving you over 5,000 movies and TV shows to stream for no additional cost.
The service is much like Netflix, with a similar selection. It works in-browser as well as via the Roku set-top box. There's no word of the service coming to gaming consoles and other set-top boxes as Netflix has, but it may well happen in the future.
What do you think? $79 a year is cheaper than Netflix, and it also comes with free 2-day Amazon shipping. But without it being easy to stream to your TV, I'm not sure how many people will jump ship.
