Will all the decor and clothes be from Amazon's catalogue?

They make it sound like all you get is 5 new TV shows for $79 per year, but it seems like it's similar to Hulu an Netflix where you get to choose among thousands. However, it doesn't apply to Japan, so I'm not even sure why they have this story here. It seems that the only choice in Japan (so far) is Hulu.

Wave of the future. i believe Netflix latest venture (Arrested Development) was a bit of a disappointment. This TV on demand trend still not fully developed.

And Hulu Japan is awful. Old shows and nothing like the US content. Amazon Prime in Japan is a joke...only offers one-day shiping. Sky "Perfect"... the same story (they spread out shows and sports among many different channels to make viewers subscribe to as many channels as possible. For example, the NBA playoffs are on wowow)

I'll wait for Amazon.co.uk to produce something to watch.
