The Fight of the Century: Amazon vs. Netflix

When it comes to video streaming, there’s two media giants at war for your viewing dollars: Amazon and Netflix. http://www.business-management-degree.net/ has created an infographic entitled, “The Fight of the Century: Amazon vs. Netflix”, pitting these two streaming heavyweights against each other. Let’s see where this match-up takes us!
First up, we’ve got Amazon that offers free video streaming for their $79/year Prime customers. They’ve got an impressive $61 billion in revenue. Prime has only 10 million subscribers, however, and only 2% use their streaming service exclusively.
Netflix offers their customers streaming for $7.99 a month, and has $10 billion in revenue. 30 million subscribers use the service for streaming, and 67% of those subscribers use it exclusively for their streaming needs. Both services are available on any compatible device, including video game consoles, computers, some mobile phones and tablets, smart TVs and Blu-ray players.
Both companies offer their own original programming. Amazon brings shows like Alpha House and Betas to the table, with yet to be premiered shows Annebots, Creative Galazy, and Tumbleleaf in the works. Producing these shows has cost Amazon $22 million. Netflix offers its subscribersEmmy winning House of Cards, critically acclaimed Orange is the New Black, Arrested Development, Lilyhammer, Hemlock Grove, along with The Killing and Daredevil on the way. Netflix has sunk $100 million into it’s show production.
In total, Amazon offers its customers 41,000 movies and TV shows, and Netflix offers 100,000 movies and TV shows, though only a portion is available via streaming.
