Wow, that's great news and will hopefully pave the way for an Amazon video app to arrive on TiVo at some point!

A very good move IMO and one hopes that is just the start.

Thank you for this, Ben - really good news! This is the way to go, and hopefully serious effort is now being put in to getting the Amazon app on the Tivo and V6.

Re: New content for Virgin Media

It's the first sign of vertical integration between Malone's companies. He owns the production company via Discovery's ownership of all3media.

Interesting - I had felt Amazon was losing ground to Netflix in new content but I like this

Re: New content for Virgin Media

So what's happened to VM's strategic policy of being just an aggregator of other companies' content?

Re: New content for Virgin Media

Yes, change of strategy. It must have dawned on him that being an aggregator of content was all very nice and cheap, but ultimately the consumer would lose out because competitors were basing their success on original content.

I'm just glad he saw the light in the nick of time.

Re: New content for Virgin Media

One of the problems of being a content aggregator is when the content owners (such as Sky Sports and BT Sport for 4K) won't agree to have their content broadcast on your platform. Amazon also produces content, but it isn't available on VM's platform.

As I understand it, VM was the party that pulled out of the original negotiations with Amazon.

If VM want Amazon on their boxes, I think they will be pushing a door that is already ajar. Hopefully, it will come later this year.
