Amazon’s huge investments in streaming programming seem to be paying off.
Amazon Prime Instant Video, the Netflix-like streaming video service that comes as part of Amazon’s $99 per year Prime loyalty program, continues to grow. Its share of Internet traffic being piped into homes during peak times — roughly 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. — has more than doubled in the last 18 months, from 1.27 percent in March 2013 to 2.58 percent in September, according to a new report from Sandvine, a company that makes broadband network equipment and sells it to Internet providers.
Prime Instant Video is nowhere close to Netflix, which continues to account for more than one-third of traffic going to American and Canadian homes during peak evening hours. Yet Amazon’s growth suggests that the company’s increased spending on video and perhaps even its streaming hardware is bearing fruit.
The figures, which Sandvine releases in a report twice each year, offer a rare glimpse at how much people are watching Netflix, Amazon and other streaming services, which are notoriously tight-lipped when it comes to viewership data.

On this day in 1973, in the midst of the Watergate scandal that eventually ended his presidency, President Richard Nixon tells a group of newspaper editors gathered at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, that he is “not a crook.”
Nixon made the now-famous declaration during a televised question-and-answer session with Associated Press editors. Nixon, who appeared “tense” to a New York Times reporter, was questioned about his role in the Watergate burglary scandal and efforts to cover up the fact that members of his re-election committee had funded the break-in. Nixon replied “people have got to know whether or not their President is a crook. Well, I’m not a crook. I’ve earned everything I’ve got.” He did, however, admit that he was at fault for failing to supervise his campaign’s fund-raising activities.
At one point during the discussion, Nixon gave a morbid response to an unrelated question about why he chose not to fly with back-up to Air Force One when traveling, the usual security protocol for presidential flights. He told the crowd that by taking just one aircraft he was saving energy, money and possibly time spent in the impeachment process: “if this one [plane] goes down,” he said, “they don’t have to impeach [me].”
Nixon was trying to be funny, but in fact the scandal was taking a toll on his physical and mental health. In Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward’s book All the President’s Men, Nixon is described at this time as being “a prisoner in his own house—secretive, distrustful… combative, sleepless.” Nixon’s protestations of innocence with regard to the Watergate cover-up were eventually eroded by a relentless federal investigation.
Richard Nixon resigned on August 8, 1974.
