Amazon is Adding 2,000 Titles from Fox to Prime Streaming

Posted Tue Sep 27, 2011 at 12:00 PM PDT by Dick Ward

Amazon Prime members are going to have over 11,000 titles to choose from starting later this fall.

Amazon has been making some big moves with Amazon Prime that have been staying mostly under the radar. Part of the reason is the cost of an Amazon Prime membership, which is an upfront fee rather than a monthly subscription. The other part of it is the limited devices that streaming is possible on. Still, the company's streaming package is looking better and better.

The latest additions to Amazon's lineup come courtesy of a new deal with Fox. The arrangement brings around 2,000 new movies and television episodes to the Amazon streaming service. That puts Amazon Prime Instant Video at a total of 11,000 streaming titles, 2,000 of which are in HD.

Of course, the 11,000 Prime titles only make up a small piece of the total puzzle. Amazon offers up over 100,000 movies and TV shows for streaming viewing, but those are purchased a-la-carte.
