Currently, Netflix has a huge hold over the video streaming market, with a reported 35% of total internet capacity in the US being devoted to it. However, Amazon is looking to muscle its way into this market even further with the introduction of another video service, one that would coincide with its existing Prime streaming service.
A report from the New York Post indicates that the new offering will, in fact, be an ad-supported free video service, compared to the $99 Prime Instant subscription-based offering that also provides other perks. It’s being considered an alternative for Prime, for those who don’t really have a need for expedient two-day shipping or the other options.
