    Amazon adds batch of FOX TV shows

    Lest we forget, Netflix, Hulu and Google aren’t the only players in the online TV space. In an announcement posted on the Amazon.com home page, Jeff Bezos says they’ve signed a new deal with FOX to bring more movies and TV shows to its instant streaming service — 24, Arrested Development and The X-Files are among the new titles.


    “We now have deals with CBS, NBCUniversal, Sony, and Warner Bros, and adding FOX will bring the total to more than 11,000 movies and TV shows available for unlimited instant streaming,” Bezos writes. “Since launching earlier this year, we have now doubled the number of titles available in Prime instant videos, and there’s still more to come.”


    Of course, this isn’t coincidental. Amazon is stepping up its streaming service in light of Netflix’s recent controversial price hike. Unlimited streaming is available for Amazon Prime members, which costs $79 a year. For those who like to watch TV on TV, Amazon has apps on Roku, Samsung, TiVo, Google TV and several other connected TV platforms.

    If Amazon can keep the price the same for Prime after adding all of this, it will really be a must have service for many of us. I already like it a lot and think the free shipping and streaming combination is a great value, if you shop at Amazon and have Google TV without a satellite or cable.

    And all Google has is deals with TNT and TBS. Which really isn't anything new - since they were both partners at launch. Oct. 5th will be a full year since the launch of Google TV - and still no Hulu Plus (which according to the Hulu web site: "Hulu & Google have been working hard to bring Hulu Plus to Google TV soon" - for over a year now). Google did add some movies to YouTube and they are trying to 'beef up' YouTube with independent content.

    Too be fair, the Android Market isn't even officially available to Google TV. I'm sure you'll see even more apps available in the market once it is available to everyone.

    Amazon's streaming service is only available in the U.S. (+Britain/Australia?). Netflix has recently made its streaming service available in the Caribbean and Latin America. This latter service will require the much-anticipated Google TV update
