J.P. Morgan on Amazon's DVD-VOD Combos: Netflix Has Nothing to Fear

Amazon’s move today to expand its Disc+ On Demand offerings to 10,000 titles may help with the instant-gratification demographic, but the benefit to the company will likely be incremental, according to the collective wisdom of J.P. Morgan’s analysts. The appeal of the combo deal–which gives a DVD buyer immediate access to the movie online via Amazon Video on Demand–will be limited by Amazon’s relatively small footprint in the living room, the analysts said. And, they noted, “A single DVD purchase under the program costs, in most cases, more than a month-long Netflix subscription,” which offers thousands of titles for streaming.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
