Amazon Planning Live Video Service

Amazon Reportedly Plans to Build Its Own Live Video Service

Nathan Ingraham | October 7, 2015

Amazon has found pretty significant success with some of its original shows -- particularly the Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning Transparent -- and it seems the company's TV ambitions don't stop with on-demand programming. According to Bloomberg, Amazon is considering an online TV service that broadcasts live and includes programming from major players like CBS and NBC. Dan Rayburn of the Streaming Media blog posted a similar report yesterday, noting that Amazon has been talking to multiple players in the content space to find out how much it would cost to license the content it wants. Rayburn says that its possible Amazon's just looking to know more about the economics of the market rather than make its own product, but either way it seems Amazon is interested in learning more about how it could launch its own live streaming video platform.
