The heat is on and the race has definitely begun. Netflix is a behemoth when it comes to streaming services – most of India won’t even know what the other options are. But now, hot on their heels is Amazon Prime, which is looking promising. Amazon is advertising its services heavily and looks like Netflix couldn’t resist the urge to take a dig at its direct competitor. Of course, they have been gracious enough to not take names and all that – but hear the first line of this promo and you tell us who they are pointing to. And if you can’t hear the promo right now, we have a screengrab – you make what you can out of it. And to be more clear, Netflix has used this as a description of the iconic Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events on their YouTube page:
If you are interested in a story with a happy ending, that story is streaming elsewhere. This story has no happy ending, no happy beginning, and very few happy things in the middle.
A Series of Unfortunate Events is the crowning glory for Netflix when it comes to films. It has an incredible collection of films which is a goldmine for anyone looking for some weekend streaming. Even so, there are some films that do not make the cut and we are happy that Netflix is adding more and more content to their services.
