Lucas Shaw, reporting for Bloomberg Business:
Amazon.com Inc. is exploring the creation of an online pay-TV service to complement its existing video offerings and has reached out to major media companies including CBS Corp. and Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal about carrying their channels, according to people familiar with the matter.
Amazon’s deliberations are preliminary, said the individuals, who asked not to be identified discussing negotiations. Some of the talks date back several months, according to one of the people.
I’m beginning to worry that Amazon is turging into a company with a “me too” business strategy.
