Amazon is considering a 25%-50% price hike to their Prime service, but the company says that rising video costs are not a factor in the decision. Amazon is investing heavily in original content and has signed multiple TV and movie licensing deals but deny these have to be off-set by increasing costs to consumers elsewhere.

7 out of the top 10 US cable providers use DigitalSmiths, a personalized video search service which also provides recommendations, and TiVo has now bought the company for $135 million in cash. The deal could be a way to open doors for TiVo with large pay TV distributors. These, and other stories of the past few days in online video and VoD-land, from ReelSEO.
