E-commerce major Amazon has unveiled an ad-supported video streaming service, miniTV, only for its Indian audiences. With this launch, Amazon will now have two video streaming offerings, miniTV, and Prime Video.
In a first-of-its-kind move globally, miniTV will be available within the Amazon shopping app for android phone users.
Prime Video will continue to remain ad-free, bundled with Prime subscription, while miniTV is a free service, which will not require a separate app.
miniTV will be extended to iOS and mobile web over the coming months.
miniTV will have professionally created and curated content, including web series, comedy shows, tech news, food, beauty, fashion, and other content. Presently, Amazon has partnered with TVF, Pocket Aces, and comedians like Ashish Chanchlani, Amit Bhadana, Round2Hell, Harsh Beniwal, Shruti Arjun Anand, Elvish Yadav, Prajakta Koli, Swagger Sharma, Aakash Gupta, and Nishant Tanwar for their existing content.
miniTV will add many more new and exclusive videos in the coming months.
