Amazon Launches MiniTV, In-App Free Video-Streaming Service Exclusively for India

Washington, May 17: American multinational technology company Amazon has now launched an ad-supported, free video streaming service called MiniTV within the Amazon India app.

According to Mashable, this is a different offering than its Amazon Prime Video service, as MiniTV is contained within Amazon’s traditional app, rather than having its own standalone app. Amazon Launches ‘AWS Space Accelerator’ Programme for Startups.

Available only to users in India, MiniTV’s catalog mostly older content which its content partners made originally for YouTube and other platforms. The lineup includes beauty and fashion content, tech news, cooking shows, and Amazon’s partners for the channel, including Indian web content studios Pocket and TVF, and a list of well-known Indian comedians.

The company said that it’s planning “new and exclusive videos” in the coming months, but didn’t provide a timeline. The channel should serve as a competitor to Flipkart Video, the free streaming service launched in 2019 by Walmart-owned Flipkart, one of Amazon’s biggest rivals in India.

Amazon is still marketing its Prime Video to consumers in India as it competes with Netflix, which has plans to launch more than three dozen new movies and shows in India this year. As per Mashable, the free MiniTV will help Amazon whether streaming content can sales on its shopping app.
