In spite of Amazon Prime's (AMZN) content-licensing binge, Netflix (NFLX) still offers a much wider selection of the most popular TV shows, says Piper. The firm estimates Netflix offers 33% of the top 75 TV shows from the last 4 years, and Amazon just 7%. Hulu Plus offers an even larger portion (44%), but they come with ads. The gap isn't so great for recent movies: Piper estimates Netflix offers 14% of the top 50 movies from the last 3 years, and Amazon 11%. Movie-only Redbox Instant (CSTR, VZ) is said to offer 10%, and Hulu Plus none of them. (NPD market share data)
