Everyone is wondering if this is a “Netflix killer” which suggests to me that people have too much time to wonder about things that who cares. PUT SOME MOVIES IN MY FACE, THOUGH!
This is perfect for all of those people who want to watch Syriana and Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, all zero of them will be way stoked
not to mention, Doctor Who and Ken Burns’ National Parks. it’s almost too good to be true. almost.
Now I KNOW you’re not talking noise about the The Doctor…
I enjoy Doctor Who, Ken Burns documentaries AND national parks, so I guess I’m the target audience?
No word if they’ll have an iPhone/iPad app like NetFlix, but it looks pretty great on the Kindle.
I wish I knew how to .lit you
Speaking of which: Any plans to bring Videogum to the kindle? Lesser blogs do it.
I might be wrong, but I thought Kindle doesn’t play videos? So that seems pointless to me.
You are right. Nevermind, I’m an idiot.
I would also like for you to be able to pick your own screensaver; I’m getting weird looks on the train for carrying around a picture of Agatha Christie with me.
also who knew that emily dickinson looked like that? not how i pictured her at all
I always pictured her as Winona Ryder in bettlejuice.
He moves by night. Hiding in the shadows. He smothers his victims with those attached paper advertisements that you have to pull off the red envelopes, then strangles them with those annoying adhesive strips that are a pain to pull off the label.
He is “The Netflix Killer.”
Put this in your queue
-The Hard-boiled Private Eye right before he shoots the Netflix Killer
Now available on Netflix Instant: DEATH.
Why must everything “kill” everything else? Can’t we all just watch movies and get along?
You just described the message of “War Games”.
I’ll gladly pay for the service when they start streaming shows directly on my face. I have been having more and more difficulty lately seeing how any of this (netflix, dvr, tivo, etc) is that different from just watching actual television.
You know Gabe’s excited

Question(s) to nobody in particular: Why would this be a Netflix killer? Is it vastly superior in some way that I don’t know about? Or is it just an extremely similar and essentially equivalent service?
There’s only room in this town for one of us pardner, and you’re old hat Netflix
It seems like it’s exactly the same, offering the same movies, and it would be free for me personally because I have Amazon Prime, so I guess it’s an extra way to watch movies when Netflix is being a jerk?
Now I can finally get to watch Amelia.
I’d give it a shot if it were available on my PS3. Until then, forget about it Gabe, it’s Netflixtown.
My own inside joke to myself is that “Streaming Movies” are another name for amateur urination fetish films. So I’ll go up to a friend and say, “You know, Amazon is now offering Streaming Movies.” And when they say, “I have Netflix,” I say, “Oh, so you watch Streaming Movies on Netflix…cool.” I don’t crack a smile, but inside I’m laughing.
