Amazon gains ground on Netflix, denies free ad-supported streaming service

Update: In a letter to Engadget, Amazon.com stresses that it “has not announced any plans to offer an ad-supported streaming service,” but stops short of claiming it has no plans to implement one in the future. In the statement, Amazon clarifies that it does offer the first episode of many titles for free, and that it is always experimenting with new ways to serve its customers, but the company made it clear that it would not humor speculation of a free version of its streaming video service. – Caleb Denison,Digital Trends
