The rumor of the week is that Amazon is working on their Amazon Prime and has something big in store. The rumor is that Amazon is working with major TV and movie channels to bring their services to Amazon and will be offering different bundling packages with different services. It will be interesting to see how this all pans out but if Amazon could add live content to their service it would be something that sets them apart. VentureBeat has the rest of the details.
Citing “people with knowledge of the plans,” Bloomberg said that Prime subscribers will soon be able to add additional online subscriptions to their account — “including major, well-known movie and TV channels,” while Amazon will also sell other bundles featuring different channels and services.
It’s not clear what these additional bolt-ons could be yet, but with TV networks showing increasing signs of nervousness at the surge in popularity of on-demand TV, Amazon could be preparing to strike deals. Indeed, just a few weeks back, Time Warner revealed it was considering holding back its better content from streaming services such as Netflix.
