INTERNET ENTERTAINMENT PROVIDERS RUMBLE

Netflix is larger than the then the biggest American Cable company Comcast.

It is the largest user of bandwidth on the entire internet.

With 27 million Americans and an additional 6 million global subscribers, they made earned nearly a Billion dollars last year.

They are the undisputed king of the streaming entertainment industry.

The world's leading Internet television network has redefined how most of us watch our television. Netflix members can watch as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, on nearly any Internet-connected screen. Members can play, pause and resume watching, all without commercials or commitments.

They are not alone and their biggest competitor Amazon Prime Instant just snagged a deal that may lure a younger demographic from them. Netflix was unable to reach a renewed licensing deal with Viacom who has inked a multi-year streaming deal with Amazon. That means content from the likes of Nickelodeon, MTV, and Comedy Central will not be available on Netflix.

Prime Instant Video has been building it's youth and kids demographic. It is a genre with lots of potential for them.

My youngest pair spend their T.V. time watching Nickelodeon productions.  Fortunately, Netflix still has the Disney productions. Phinias and Ferb remains on American Netflix. I certainly willnot miss Sponge Bob Squarep
ants!

Amazon Prime Instant is available on the web, iOS, Kindle Fire, Xbox, PlayStation 3, a smart TVs and Blu-ray players.

Time to check out the competition.
