The Skeleton Twins
I think this is a bigger win for Amazon Prime in terms of TV. They've added several HBO classics like Entourage, Newsroom and Boardwalk Empire that are hard to find online without an HBOGo subscription.
In terms of films, I'm personally excited for Skeleton Twins, a dark comedy starring Kristin Wiig and Bill Hader, my favorite SNL friends.
As online streaming only becomes more popular, I'm expecting this competition to heat up. Netflix currently dominates, but as other services grow their content libraries, Netflix could be dethroned as king of online streaming.
Entourage is a big add, but Neflix is on an unreal run with their deep database of films and new original content. I just finished Sense 8 yesterday, amazing show.
Ooh Dr. Stragelove is a cool inclusion. I'd definitely re-watch that one.
