AMAZON PRIME TO RELEASE ORIGINAL SERIES FOR BINGE VIEWING

Apparently impressed by Netflix’s success in launching original series by making all of the episodes available at once, Amazon plans to follow suit. Recode.net reported on Monday that Amazon plans to release all ten episodes of its "dramedy" Transparent on the same da in September. Recode.net speculated that the move may be a test of sorts by Amazon chief Jeff Bezos or Roy Price, who oversees Amazon’s digital programming efforts. They may, it observed, "simply want to see what works best — stretching a show out over many weeks, and (hopefully) watching buzz build over time, or letting viewers scarf a show up as quickly as they can, hoping they tell their pals about it."
