Rumor: Amazon planning to release a live TV streaming service

Amazon Instant Video

#Amazon could be looking to foray into live TV streaming according to a new report. It is said that the retailer might be looking to get more involved in live TV streaming from the likes of #CBS and #NBC.

The report from Bloomberg said – “ Inc. is exploring the creation of a live online TV service and has reached out to major media companies including CBS Corp. and Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal to express interest in carrying their channels, according to people familiar with the matter.”

Obviously, further details weren’t made available, but a move like this does make sense given what Amazon is going to bring to the table. It will be interesting to see how that pans out considering that live TV streaming is only available from networks and their dedicated apps. If Amazon does indeed want to go through with this, it will have the strenuous task of coming to an agreement with these major corporations.

Do you think a plan like this is feasible from Amazon? Sound off in the comments section below.
