My one part blog post on getting ride of cable and dish has turned in to a trilogy (Here, here, and the post you are reading). This is a quick update on Amazon Prime. I read yesterday that Amazons signed a streaming deal with Epix ( an entertainment channel that partners with several major movie studios). This will double the number of movies on Amazon Prime. If you are a streaming video consumer you might want to keep your eye on their selections to see if becoming a subscriber is worth your money. I like how David Pogue from the New York Time sums up Amazon Prime…
Prime membership started out as an attractive option for people who shop a lot on Amazon: for $79 a year, you get free two-day shipping on almost any purchase (or $4 overnight). Then Amazon added those streaming movies to the Prime perks, and then added one free Kindle e-book rental a month.
Random, right? It’s like a Fruit of the Month Club membership that comes with free oil changes, ski socks and tax advice.
Well, it is random but I like the perks…I may just become a Prime member this week with this new deal they struck with EPIX.
