Amazon Prime Video Is Gearing Up With Plans For Own Linear TV
A report from the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) indicates that the OTT streaming services provider, Amazon Prime Video (a subsidiary of Amazon), is working toward launching linear TV channels.
This move, according to TV with Thinus, would be similar to how MultiChoice in Africa is currently offering some linear TV channels via its Showmax subscription video-on-demand platform.
It is reported that Amazon Prime Video has put our advertising for technical and marketing positions for this new venture. "We are seeking an experienced product manager for the Prime Video linear TV team to redefine how customers watch 24/7 linear broadcast TV content," says Amazon in a job posting.
It is thought that Amazon Prime Video linear TV line-up will include more live sports coverage, TV news channels and entertainment packages.
