Amazon has announced its new and improved Amazon Prime service that now offers more than 5,000 streaming TV shows and movies to customers. Those who already pay the $79 per year for Prime won't have to pay any extra to get access to the streams. Video will be available on Macs and PCs in the US, as well as a number of set-top boxes.
Amazon does have one major point in its favor though - price. Netflix's streaming-only plan costs $7.99 per month (or $95.88 per year), making it almost $20 more per year than Amazon Prime. That's not a massive savings, but when combined with the free two-day shipping deals that also come with Prime, Amazon's offering looks a little better.
