How much are Netflix, Amazon and Hulu spending on original content?

Original content is becoming a staple for over-the-top video providers, epitomized by House of Cards from Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX). But how much are online video providers actually spending on original content this year? While Netflix has always been pretty open about the amount of money it's dedicating to its original series, others like Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Hulu are not so forthcoming. Figuring out how much money OTT providers are dedicating just to original series is a task that industry analysts spend a fair amount of time on. But in most cases they can only estimate dollar figures, and often only a rough guess at the total amount a given provider is spending for all its content acquisition. FierceOnlineVideo is taking a stab at the dollar amounts for content acquisition--both existing, non-exclusive content and original, exclusive content--of three top online video companies: Amazon, Hulu and Netflix. Special report
