Amazon Launches Unlimited Movie Streaming Service

Amazon began offering an unlimited movie streaming service to U.S. customers who enroll as Amazon Prime members. For a $79 annual fee, members get on-demand streaming from a library of several thousand films and TV shows to Internet-enabled Blu-ray players or TV sets. They also get free 2-day shipping for physical goods purchased at Although Amazon's catalog of on-demand titles is smaller, the new service is seen as competition to Netflix's subscription-based streaming model.
