For mobile only, and only for India, for now, Amazon has introduced a new streaming service, video content with popular shows from a long list of celebrities and web producers.
miniTV is a free video streaming service with advertising, and it is available within the Amazon shopping application, it does not have a separate app.
In it you can find web series, comedy shows, technology news, food, beauty, fashion and more. The aim is to report on the latest products and trends by technology expert Trakin Tech, fashion and beauty experts such as Sejal Kumar, Malvika Sitlani, Jovita George, Prerna Chhabra and ShivShakti. In the coming months, miniTV will add many more new and exclusive videos, but always for that country.
With this release, Amazon has two video entertainment offerings: miniTV and Prime Video. These are the differences:
– miniTV is completely free and does not require a separate application. It can only be enjoyed from your mobile.
– Prime Video requires a Prime subscription and offers a more premium content collection, with the latest movies and TV shows in multiple languages. It is possible to enjoy it from mobile, web and TV.
Amazon.in is an original move, as they have unified free entertainment videos with a shopping experience. They comment that miniTV will be extended to the iOS application and the mobile web in the coming months, for now it is only on android.
