The new content would be a great match for Amazon’s long-long rumored tablet expected to be announced on Wednesday.
Netflix Makes Its Own Announcement of New Partnership
Netflix isn’t taking all this lying down, however. The company announced its own streaming deal with movie studio DreamWorks Animation. The collaboration will bring that studio’s films and TV specials to Netflix beginning in 2013. The DreamWorks deal probably won’t add 2,000 titles to Netflix’s listings, but Netflix already has a significant lead in numbers over Amazon, with over 30,000 streaming titles available through its Instant Watch service.
But, with customers angry at the company’s recent controversial move to split in two and Amazon penning deals this quickly (the company announced a similar deal with CBS back in July), Netflix still has a lot to worry about.
So will you stick with Netflix if you are a subscriber? Or would you consider jumping ship for Amazon? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter or in the Comments section.
