This approach for Amazon to grab MGM is amazing. A pickup like this will propel Amazon forward in the streaming wars. While we can’t be clear on what the deal is with Netflix, Hulu, or anyone else, the list of properties that hold up well. Some of the big names include Netflix options on most Bond flicks, and Hulu’s ties to Handmaid’s Tale… Wargames, Hackers, Stargtate, and one of the best series of car chase sequences ever… Ronin.
The deal emphasizes Amazon’s willingness to spend deeply to remain competitive in a crowded streaming market.
