While it could always be better, I challenge anyone here to show me that Amazon has higher quality content in 3D. At best Amazon can equal Netflix in 2D, but this is not the place in the forum to discuss 2D content.
I don't even think Amazon would rate in the top 10 broadcast providers. For 3D content and quality.
No problem if you prefer Amazon streaming to any other service, that is your choice. But then just admit, you don't care about 3D either.

Sorry Don but the 3D content on Netflix is a joke; a bunch of innocuous Asian flicks, some foreign TV shows and a handful of pointless Red Bull documentaries. About the only worthwhile content were the Imax features (of course, there hasn't been a new one of those in ages). Whatever mainstream 3D content they had quickly evaporated away and the last couple of notable titles (The Croods, Turbo) were each pulled after a few days. They can't even muster up the commitment to maintain an accurate list of their dwindling titles.
Add to that the wildly inconsistent quality of the service; I continued to get major server dropoffs in resolution during prime time even after their deal with Comcast in 2D and it was all but impossible for me to watch a 3D feature between 8:00pm and 11:00pm most nights.
In terms of value, Amazon offers streaming of over 40,000 movies and TV shows (and there IS a lot of overlap with Netflix), as well as streaming of thousands of songs, the ability to borrow books thru Kindle and free two day delivery on all Amazon purchases, all for $100 a year or about $8.33 a month - a much better value in my opinion.
I love good 3D, not this muck Netflix offers. If they ever get their act together, I'll gladly sign back on; but in its current state the service just doesn't have much of anything for me.
