Amazon Prime members now have access to about 5000 movies and TV shows.
An Amazon Prime subscription is $79 a year but if you are a student with a .edu email address, you can get Amazon Prime free for a year! That means free two-day shipping and free streaming movies. Yay! Update: Nevermind. Apparently this is only for paid Amazon Prime members. Bummer.
I took a look at the available streaming titles and it's nowhere near the amount that Netflix has. Still, it'll be interesting how this all plays out.
