Re: new OTT user profile
Good point - especially since Amazon's been gaining recognition for the Amazon-only content it's producing.  I could see people paying for a month of service to watch the full seasons of particular shows and then potentially cancelling when a different series starts elsewhere.

(Though Prime as an overall service is pretty handy in general - I forget that video is even one of the benefits sometimes!)

Re: Netflix and Amazon have some advantages...
Amazon also has the advantage of deep pockets and an increasingly diverse amount of product offerings/markets it's involved in.

Re: Amazon Has a Long Way to Go
I just hate when it shows up in a search for content! :-)

At least with netflix or other services, if it's not available, no results show up. Or on iTunes I know free is the exception to the rule.

(Or when I'm making my way through a TV series and think the next season is available, then get hit with the payment screen in order to watch it!)

Re: Amazon Has a Long Way to Go
What they are doing is in essence adopting the "Automatic Customer" concept--it is a standalone business that is estimated at $ 5 Billion Alone..and enticing people to buy more is quite a draw--I hope you agree!!

Re: Amazon Has a Long Way to Go
...As I have been assessing the earnings, it seems as if they've got some things up their sleeve with Prime as Mike has reported on what they're doing up their sleeve.

Re: Amazon
@freehe, exactly, I fully agree.

If Netflix keeps its competitive edge and delivers the quality content, they will have the ability to stay in the lead.  Amazon can create new tiers and delivery levels - which they are good at - but if Netflix adapts and continues to have a better content/mix, the customers will stay with them.  Note:  They may have to look at some new options for pricing in the long run if the pricing models change and customers begin to move away from the current models.

Amazon
Competition is good but Amazon is just starting out. Netflix customers are loyal and aren't going to switch anytime soon. It will take a few years for Amazon to develop good original content as well as movies that customers want to see. Their catalog is subpar right now. Netflix has nothing to worry about for now but they better keep developing new betters or they will how a low quarter like Apple just did.

Re: Amazon Has a Long Way to Go
Yes good point, I'm the same way.

I understand why some things are free and why some have to be purchased. It brings in more kinds of costumers, but it's annoying when you'e used to something being free and then realize you have to buy something else in order to watch it. I'd also rather purchase things off of iTunes.

Re: Amazon Has a Long Way to Go
@vnewman you actually end up paying more to just stream than you do for all of the benefits of Prime. So it definitely seems crazy why anyone would choose to just stream when you can get free shipping on items at the same time, for less money. But realistically, I've made similar decisions when a large, one time payment was just completely out of reach for me financially, and a relatively small, month-to-month payment made more sense. Granted I don't make this decision where Prime is concerned, but I can still see why someone would go that route.
