Amazon and OnLive looking to join the subscription streaming market

Move over Netflix, there's more people coming for you

Movie and TV streaming services are big business these days, and two more companies look to be jumping into the fray. Internet bigdog Amazon and smaller startup OnLive reportedly have their eyes on the streaming market, if in slightly different ways.

Amazon, who already offers their On Demand service, is looking to get into streaming with a service bundled with an Amazon Prime account that will stream TV shows and movies. Amazon is already in with TiVo, Roku, and Google TV so it wouldn't be a stretch to think they would have a pretty solid platform to start on when going this route. OnLive, currently a game subscription service, looks to offer a similar subscription based plan but would be on a bit smaller scale. One of OnLive's major financial backers is a little company you may have heard of: Time Warner's Warner Bros. Access to their enormous lineup of content would be a great starting point for OnLive's plans to cut into the Netflix dominated streaming scene.
