Amazons Instant Video streaming service has arrived in Japan, letting local customers purchase or rent from a selection of 26,000 movies and TV shows. Roughly 15,000 of those are available in HD, according to The Hollywood Reporter. With the expansion, Amazon joins both local competitors and US-based rivals Hulu, Apple, and Google in the Japanese market, though some incredibly popular US services like Netflix still have no presence in the country. Newer hits like Monsters University are priced higher; Amazons initial content partners include Shochiku Co. and Toho Co. and local broadcasters NHK and Fuji TV.
