Amazon is looking to take its Prime service to the next level and will do so by launching its first original content next Friday, November 15th. The show is named "Alpha House," and will consist of three initial episodes which will be released to the public, with the remaining 8 episodes requiring an Amazon Prime subscription to view.
The same business model will apply to the company's second series titled "Betas" which will launch a week later. Unfortunately, unlike Netflix which releases all of its series episode's at once, Amazon will take a more traditional approach and release the remaining 8 episodes for both series on a weekly basis. Amazon is banking on the new original series to be a hit and has green-lighted three more original series to begin development as well. How do you feel about companies like Amazon, Netflix, and Hulu developing their own shows which you need to subscribe to to see? Let us know in the comments.
