    As I posted on another thread the games afoot. The streaming war has begun. 2012 should be a interesting year in deciding which players survive and who will be top dog.

    Yeah, it's going to get very interesting. I would bet NetFlix is in it for the long haul and Amazon VOD as well. I don't like or use HULU, they have limited programs that all have commercial interruptions. I can't see how Crackle can survive down the road either.

    It doesn't matter what content Amazon acquires rights to unless and until they add search capability for Prime content and create some kind of user-generated favorites list (queue), I'll still prefer Netflix ten-to-one. Showing an filtered list of 300 movies from which to choose is ridiculous! I'm an Amazon Prime sub, but I seldom go there unless I can't find a particular movie or tv show that I want to see on Netflix .

    You know, now that you guys mention it - I never thought of that. Whenever I use Amazon, I know what I'm going to watch and do a search for that program and then watch it. They do need a favorites or some sort of queue.
