After striking a video streaming deal with CBS last week, Amazon (AMZN) is now announcing a deal with NBCUniversal for access to certain Universal Studios movies. Amazon claims the move will bring the size of the streaming library for its Prime Instant Video service to 9K titles; Netflix (NFLX) was estimated in January to offer 20K titles.

    Would that be before or after they lost the Sony content due to too many subscribers? Good thing that was "temporary". Two months running and no updates in sight.

     

    Probably won't get the content back until the Starz deal is renegotiated in Jan 2012.

     

    At Amazon's content growth rate they could easily surpass Netflix's offerings before the Starz deal is even finalized.

     

    At a $1.50 per month cheaper plus free 2DA shipping Amazon is looking to directly challenge Netflix as the value streaming option.
