Amazon Preparing to Face Off With Netflix: Report



    12 Ways to Effortlessly Surprise Your Friends and Co-Workers

    Netflix is doing good business with its unlimited streaming service, but Amazon is hoping to get in on that action itself. Rumor has it, they're prepping a competing service for Prime members.

    Currently, $79 a year gets you an Amazon Prime membership and free 2-day shipping for anything in the store. But some leaked screenshots show that Prime members may soon be getting free access to instant streaming of 5,000 movies and TV shows. Compare that to Netflix's $96 yearly charge for streaming, and you've got some serious competition on your hands.

    What do you think? Would you rather sign up with Amazon than Netflix?
