Amazon is Launching a New Streaming Service




Amazon has long pushed Amazon Prime as its main streaming service. In the past it has picked up streaming services such as Twitch, the live game streaming service, to expand its catalog.

Now, for the first time, Amazon is launching its own subscription-based streaming service. Anime Strike is $4.99 a month and comes with 1,000 movie and TV shows including “classics, exclusives, and hard-to-find content (like new episodes from Japan’s famed late-night anime blocks),” the company says.

It adds that the lineup has “recent hits like The Great Passage, and same-day-as-broadcast series with episodes released weekly direct from Japan, including Scum’s Wish and Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga.”

If you want to try out the service you can get a free 7-day trial of Anime Strike to see if it will work for you.

Amazon Channels allows you to manage your subscriptions to more than a 100 services through Amazon, which enables you to subscribe to channels such as HBO, Showtime, Starz, and many more without the need for a separate app or the need to enter your billing information for each service.

It will be interesting to see how successful this service is for Amazon. It is possible this may be the first of many new services that Amazon will be rolling out. It could allow Amazon to offer specific content without having to force it into the Amazon Prime subscription.
