Survey Says: Amazon Prime could flip Netflix subs.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/[/newsimage]Amazon added streaming videos to its "Prime" package this week. The new service offers subscribers (who pay $79.99 a year) instant access to over 5,000 movies and TV shows. It's also slightly cheaper than competitor Netflix's yearly fee. A recent survey may spell trouble for Netflix, as it provides some surprising numbers regarding how the company's present members feel towards an Amazon Prime that offers a similar video streaming service.

Been a Netflix and an Amazon customer for a long time. I like the idea of having extra streaming content as Netflix’s streaming library isn’t that great. But I don’t think I would drop my Netflix account as I still get physical DVD’s and BD’s sent to my house. That is something that I can’t do with Amazon.

This is the one big reason why netflix will not go out or stop be used by customers any time soon. Not everyone has broad band width or fiber for streaming and even then your connection is at the mercy of the ISP and line conditions. I will remain Netflix DVD subscribers but I also have my subscription through another DVD mail rental cause Netflix doesn’t always have the genre that I like to be able to watch and sometimes they don’t have it available to rent so I have to go through another dvd online rental to get my DVDs. Also polls and surveys can be worded or read differently depending whom is interpreting the results to get what they want out of the data. So I will take it with a grain of salt and not until I see them really bringing out the product they claim to have to go up against Netflix only then will we really see if the words match the pavement.
