Amazon vs Netflix: Combatants or Complementary?

8 January 2014 772 views No Comment

As evidenced by the huge number of reality shows on TV, people love conflict. However, while it might be entertaining to think “Amazon vs Netflix,” the reality of the situation is that Amazon + Netflix is a better deal for viewers.

Amazon, the world’s largest internet retailer, has seen DVD sales plummet as consumers clamor for downloadable and streaming content. As a result, the company is pushing its Prime Instant Video, which, similar to Netflix, offers commercial-free shows and movies at the viewer’s whim. Now these two are bidding against each other for content and producing their own original shows. Who’s got the upper hand? — Business Management Degrees

Amazon vs Netflix: Better Together

While both streaming media services are pushing hard into the original content space, the real red meat is the third-party TV shows and Hollywood movies produced by the usual suspects. Both Netflix (from $6.99/mo) and Amazon ($79/yr) deliver a collectively massive library designed to feed your binge watching needs.

For example, looking for Dancing Moms? Amazon Prime. Walking Dead? Go for Netflix.

So, how do you see it? Should we be talking up Amazon vs Netflix as a war or Amazon + Netflix as the ultimate one-two movie and TV viewing punch?
