Yet another challenger has emerged to take on Netflix, reports Bloombert News.
Amazon.com has held early talks with media companies including Time Warner about starting an online video subscription service that would compete with Netflix, reports Bloomberg News.
The service would offer older television shows and films, the story says, citing three people with knowledge of the discussions. Other media companies that have been part of early talks include Viacom and NBC Universal.
Amazon would take a similar approach to Netflix with how it structures the content deals, with payments going to media companies for rights to stream TV shows over the Web, the article says. Time Warner, NBC and Viacom declined to comment.
