Live streams on Netflix: Prime Video shows how it’s done
So while Netflix is now working on its first live broadcasts, its competitor Prime Video has been around for a while. The Amazon streaming service attracted a lot of attention with the purchase of broadcasting rights for the UEFA Champions League. Since then, Prime customers have been able to watch selected Tuesday matches of the European football premier class live – and at no extra charge.
Lots of changes at Netflix – that’s why
The announcement of live formats is one of many changes currently taking place at industry pioneer Netflix. The reason for this is the first decline in users since the company started and the panicked reaction of stock market investors. Since then, it has become clear that the streaming giant has to save – which is also reflected in these new measures.
