Amazon adds 1000 movies, shows to streaming service Earlier this year, Amazon announced an unlimited movie and TV streaming service that is free to Amazon Prime users and would rival Netflix's Watch Instantly service.
Today the company has added 1000 new movies and TV show episodes, including a good portion in HD.

Amazon says they have added, for example, the last 7 seasons of Sesame Street, with 3 in HD, along with Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles in HD, as well.

Among some of the movies added (from quick glance at the list here) are Training Day, the Right Stuff and Superman: The Movie.

Amazon Prime Instant Videos are available for playback on desktops and over 300 devices including HDTVs, Blu-ray players, and set-top boxes.

LoL...who cares...they want to compete with NetFlix...so they have a handful of movies? NetFlix sometimes adds 1000 movies without a press release, as a part of normal operations.

I would say that's possibly on a bi-weekly basis.
