Amazon Channels expands to Europe: how to put the customer first

Monday 29 May 2017 | 13:38 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
Amazon is expanding its service Amazon Channels to the UK, Germany and Austria. Offered as part of Amazon Prime Video, it's expected to help grow Prime subscriptions. To date, Amazon has lacked live TV and sport content. It can step up the competition in the VOD market with the new partners, complemented with its own original content.
