Amazon’s next foray into video probably isn’t what you expect. No, the e-commerce juggernaut isn’t jumping into VR (that we know of), it will potentially start offering more free, ad-supported channels however. At least in the United Kingdom. According to the UK’s This is Money (an offshoot of The Daily Mail), Amazon recently posted a job listing for “head of free to air TV and advertising” based out of London. The expectation is that it’ll broadcast Premier League soccer next year for free, with traditional commercials running during the matches.
Amazon may add to its ‘free’ TV streaming in the UK
