"Everyone has to start somewhere. Give them time to build up their library and customer base and we'll see who comes out on top. Christensen's Disruptive Innovation Theory says that Amazon will fail to dislodge Netflix if they don't target a neglected niche market and work their way up from there."

"I really have a problem with this, I want a single source of streaming and I believe Netflix is the best suited, so if Amazon has content I want to see, that means I have to pay for that as well, and that's where my selfish side comes into play for this argument. For once, I want a monopoly in service."

"I doubt Amazon becomes #1 streaming provider anytime soon. However, being a user myself of both services, I can tell Amazon is doing a terrific job in getting there. Besides, new 'players' in this market is good for innovation, so we will all benefit from this."
