Amazon Takes on YouTube

The amazon prime video service has just upped the game. Not only are they offering movies, tv shows and original content, but now they are opening up the platform for content creators by launching Video Direct. Starting today, Amazon Video Direct lets video makers around the globe share their work, kind of like Youtube. And just like youtube, amazon is offering royalty payments based on how often a video gets streamed. Creators can also choose whether or not their content is free with ads, available for a one time pruchase, or whether its only available to Prime video members. But the cherry on top is that the top 100 videos each month get an extra bonus from a one million dollar “AVD Stars” Fund. Clearly this move from Amazon is to directly compete with youtube. What do you guys think? Will Amazon do a good enough job to make its video direct service rival youtube? Leave a comment.
