What are some of the programming differences between Amazon (NSDQ: AMZN) Prime Videos, Netflix (NSDQ: NFLX) and Hulu Plus? Amazon has some previously unavailable Doctor Who, for one thing. Internet video guide Clicker takes a look at the services and offers a detailed chart (below) comparing Amazon’s streaming video perk for Prime subscribers with Netflix, Hulu Plus and on-demand services iTunes, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu. Also worth a read, Rex Hammock’s consumer take on Amazon’s “free” Trojan Horse.
Update: A couple of good points have been raised about the chart: Amazon lists Android under mobile but hasn’t announced anything, and, as Dan Rayburn notes in the comments, Amazon’s HD is
480 720, while Netflix is 1080.
Update 2: The chart has been updated to reflect those issues. Clicker’s Guillermo Pont explains it in the comments.
Correction: Hulu says Hulu Plus actually has more than 16,000 episodes of TV shows, and 775 movies. (It will be adding about 650 more movies from the Criterion Collection in coming months.) And now the chart has been updated to reflect that. [2/25/2011]
