Amazon Studios Director Explains Decision Not To Take Netflix's All-At-Once Approach With Original Series image
Following the recent announcement that Amazon had set the premiere dates for their new original comedies Alpha House and Betas, we were left to wonder about the way Amazon was planning to roll out these new comedies.

New Pilots Among Amazon Instant Video's Most Watch Episodes This Weekend image
Amazon could be changing the game in their efforts to present a selection of pilots so that the general public can weigh in before they make their final decision on which of them will go to series. Whether any of the networks or streaming video services decide to follow suit in the future remains to be seen, but it's certainly an interesting and interactive way to bring the viewers in earlier in the process of taking a pilot to series or inevitably scrapping it.

Amazon Pilots Review: Alpha House Shows Great Promise, Onion News Empire Not So Much image
Four Republican Senators, ranging from very experienced to brand new, live in a house together to cut down on life clutter and expenses. Obviously, the premise is rife with comedic possibilities and potential shenanigans. Fortunately or unfortunately, itís also rife with partisan politics too.

Zombieland, Betas And Other Amazon Pilots Now Available To Watch And Review image
Amazon's doing things a little bit differently than network television. Rather than making their series orders before presenting the chosen shows to viewers, they're turning their site into one big focus group in giving the public a look at the goods before any decisions are made on which pilots will go to series. Today, Amazon made fourteen pilots available for viewing through Amazon Instant Video.

It's a great time of year to be an Amazon Prime subscriber. The included free two-day shipping perk for Prime-eligible items ensures a speedy delivery for gifts, which makes online shopping even easier and oftentimes more cost efficient than other methods of shopping. But fast shipping is only one of the things Prime subscribers get for their $79 a year. Also included is access to the Kindle Owner's Lending Library (for Kindle owners) and the Netflix-like streaming video service, which will soon include original programming.
