Amazon Prime Instant Video is America’s second largest on-demand video subscription service and the chief pain in Netflix’s proverbial side. Sometimes good competition works in the favour of the consumer and this has given Amazon Prime some killer features that walk all over Netflix. But is it really as good as it sounds?
Whilst most PAYG online video streaming services concentrate on a single country or a couple of regions, Apple’s iTunes is the only true fully global service available. A great deal of you would have already tried their music store, but how good is their video on-demand library and is it really worth investing in new hardware?
If you want a great PAYG video on-demand service, there are plenty of alternatives to iTunes out there, but none are larger than Vudu. Never heard of them? Not surprising if you live outside of the US, but with the world’s largest HD library on offer, maybe it’s worth a try?
