Rumors have been heating up over the last few weeks that Amazon was on the verge of offering “free,” unlimited video streaming to its Prime members, who pay $79.99 a year for free two-day shipping on many items sold on Amazon. Now a tipster has sent a few screenshots to Engadget allegedly showing an unlimited video streaming section to complement Amazon’s VOD (video-on-demand) offerings.
Oh hell yes.
When Amazon first introduced it’s Prime membership, I couldn’t imagine anyone foolish enough to pay $80 for a years worth of 2 day shipping. After all $80 spent on Amazon Prime is a lot of money not being spent on women and booze.
But eventually I gave up and decided to try it out. And boy am I glad that I did. Amazon Prime is a lot like buying an iPhone. Totally changes your life.
But adding on a free netflix style service with your Prime membership? Oh that’s just money in the bank.
