In an analyst note released by Cantor Fitzgerald today, the firm said Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)’s deal with Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX) to bring select HBO content to Prime helps the service narrow the gap with Netflix Inc., (NASDAQ:NFLX). The firm views the deal as a headline negative for Netflix, but Cantor still believes Netflix and Prime are complementary services. Cantor estimates the deal’s value at $200M to 400M per year, which is not cheap but can be justified by the recent price hike for Amazon’s Prime service.
