Why? Netflix isn't pushing any major new originals while HBO's top shows are on hiatus. Amazon should get at least a little breathing room to draw in new viewers to its absurd political comedy. Four episodes have aired as of this writing, with a fifth about to become available.
Better still, Tim says, is that Amazon is getting serious about distribution. A more comprehensive Instant Video app allows streaming not only on smartphones and tablets but also on once-forbidden territory, such as Apple TV. Having the extra outlets could make the entire service a more viable alternative to Netflix.
