The icing on the cake is that the newly-added streaming content would be available for free, to the $79 per year Amazon Prime program holders.
The Seattle-based online store made the announcement on Wednesday.
It would be available in the same video-on-demand format and would be accessible on all devices, including personal computers, tablets, Blu-ray players and Web-media, having the Amazon VOD application installed.
“But the selection of free videos offered to Prime subscribers, who pay $79 a year for free two-day shipping, is far narrower than what's available for rent or purchase through Amazon's older program,” informed a technologist.
1,669 ‘Prime Eligible’ movies and 484 serials were listed as newly-added by the Amazon Prime website, which is very limited to its rental content, which includes 34,862 movies and 6,248 television serials.
