In the growing streaming war, Amazon has added more than 1,000 movie and TV titles to its Prime arsenal.
Amazon Prime members pay $79 a year for free two-day shipping on all orders as well as access to the site’s growing streaming inventory.
On Friday, Netflix said that Sony films were now longer available on its streaming service due to "a temporary contract issue" between the studio and Starz.
According to February estimates from DailyFinance, Amazon Prime’s instant inventory represents about one quarter of the more than 20,000 titles that Netflix offered customers that month.
Netflix charges $7.99 a month for its service.
Another contender in the game, Dish Network offered a Tuesday tweet boasting its own offerings: “Watch Salt, Social Network, Grown Ups, Easy A, The Other Guys or Karate Kid instantly on www.dishonline.com You can’t do that on Netflix!”
Amazon will continue to make its streaming video available on Blu-ray players, HDTVs, and set-top boxes.
