Content Wars: Amazon adds Fox

Amazon has announced that it will now offer movies and shows from FOX. This takes Amazon’s instant streaming offerings to 11,000 versus 20,000 for Netflix versus 5,000 for Blockbuster. The past week has seen several developments on the Content Wars front, with the release of Blockbuster’s Movie Pass and Netflix’s deal with Dreamworks.

Amazon’s announcement comes on the heels of its ‘Kindle Books through public libraries‘  deal. There are rumors of a Netflix for Books offering as well. It seems Amazon is adding content muscle in preparation for its Android Tablet.

FOX titles available to Prime members will include contemporary movies such as, “Speed,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Doctor Dolittle,” “Last of the Mohicans,” and “Office Space,” as well as classics like “The Longest Day,” “All About Eve,” “9 to 5,” and “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” FOX also brings to Prime members a selection of popular TV series including “24,” “The X-Files,” “NYPD Blue,” “Arrested Development,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Ally McBeal,” and newly available on digital video, “The Wonder Years.”
