    Signing a deal with Paramount is awesome for Amazon. That will definitely give them a lot more content. I couldn’t see paying that much for each movie when I can be paying less for the Blockbuster@Home service through Dish. A co-worker at Dish told me to try it out since it a good price and I get streaming and so much more. What is cool about this service is I can watch it on my iPad, which is something Amazon does not have available yet. I love taking it traveling because it keeps the kids entertained.
