Are You Streaming Movies This Weekend?

If you are streaming movies, you probably already know about the streaming wars. As the availability of entertainment content grows and the methods to consume it expand, so does the opportunity to get and enjoy more for less. Take Netflix for example…Netflix video usage is more than 10 times Amazon and Hulu combined…their low cost and huge selection of over 60,000 streaming titles, not to mention a major overhaul this past week, makes it possible to enjoy so much for so little.

For $79 a year (which translates to $6.59 per month, compared with Netflix’s monthly subscription fee of $7.99), Amazon Prime subscribers receive more than just their streaming selections. Prime customers also get free two-day shipping on almost all Amazon products ordered. As an additional part of the Prime service, Amazon Prime members also benefit from unlimited viewing of the more than 41,000 movies and television shows on the site, and now Amazon will add its own content to the mix including the new Alpha House. This year has seen considerable growth for the Prime library, which had approximately 30,000 titles already at the end of 2012.

While the streaming wars continue to wage, there will be great opportunities to stream what you may have missid like these just-released on Netflix for the week of November 15…there are links to preview here or to go to the grid view for all previews.
