The name Epix may not mean a lot to you, but it means a lot to Netflix and Amazon. Epix is a premium movie channel, and Amazon struck a deal with the channel for streaming rights to its content which includes blockbusters like <em>The Avengers</em>, <em>Ironman 2</em>, and <em>The Hunger Games</em> .

Up until now, Netflix had exclusive rights to the Epix flicks, but CEO Reed Hastings warned stockholders earlier this year that it would be losing control of the content.
