Re: Not surprising
@elizabethv, good examples.  I think Netflix probably offers the first choice selections, but Amazon is creating new "delivery" options - including pricing, downloading, etc.  I think the best answer is to keep all choices growing so we as customers continue to have the option to buy what we want/need.

Re: Amazon Prime
@Mike, thanks - that makes sense.  The more traditional delivery (with Prime added value service) sounds like it is a real plus for your area!  (Probably beautiful country as well - worth the droneless environment!)

And yes, I would agree that Netflix is the "Go To" first choice for many on the videos.  I think it will take more time, and more value-added features, for Amazon to become the first choice ahead of Netflix.

Re: Amazon Prime
@batye, thanks - yes, if done properly, it can be a viable means of effective delivery (also environmentally friendly).  Here in California, close to key Amazon distribution centers, they are deploying drones in specific markets - it appears to be going well.


Maybe a preview into the future?

Re: Amazon Prime
@Dhagar Drones would have to travel a long distance to deliver here, and there's not a city big enough to warrent a large warehouse. We do get somethings from Prime but our retired neighbors seem to have packages arriving daily via delivery truck. 

As for Hulu, I used to watch episodes of "The Office" on my laptop before Hulu Plus. Now we're watching some of the same episodes on Netflix. (Our kids like it.) Amazon video is backup for when we can't find a good movie on Netflix.

Not surprising
This is certainly not surprising. And I do really enjoy Netflix. I suppose, if I were being fair, Netflix is used more often than any other service to keep my kids happy. But more often than not lately, I'm using Amazon. Amazon let's me download the movies and shows I want to watch. This comes in really handy while I'm working at night, because we are allowed to watch movies, but my company's WiFi is TERRIBLE, and I certainly can't afford to eat up data all night. So downloading from Amazon let's me watch uninterrupted movies all night long, which I really have to appreciate. When I'm done with the movie, I delete the download, freeing up space for the next round.

Re: Amazon Prime
@Mike, sounds like a truly valuable service for rural areas.  What is their primary delivery mode - do they use drones yet or more conventional still?

Re: Amazon Prime
@JoeStanganelli, that is a different use case.  Maybe they are first time users and haven't transferred from other services, or maybe they truly prefer the Amazon video service?
