Marc Perton reports on our brother site Engadget that Amazon has decided not to start the much rumored DVD rental service. Chalk up another one for Netflix. First they took Wal-Mart out, now it seems they've knocked Amazon out even before they announced their service.

In a recent analysts’ meeting, Netflix CFO Barry McCarthy commented: “Today, I don’t think they’re coming,” the Netflix CFO said. “I could be wrong. I guess we’ll see over time.” Amazon, which does rent DVDs in the U.K., declined to comment.
