MiniTV, a new video streaming service from Amazon, has launched. Because of the service’s “professionally” produced and curated content, users will be able to watch web series, comedy shows, tech news, food, makeup, and fashion, among other things. It is free, but users may be subjected to advertisements. It is available in the Amazon shopping app.
What is Amazon miniTV?
Amazon miniTV is a video streaming service that allows users to watch free content from within the Amazon app. Amazon’s new miniTV in-app service is the world’s first of its kind.
Amazon miniTV is an ad-supported video streaming service available only to Amazon app users in India. According to the brand, which announced the feature last week, the miniTV will host content ranging from web series to comedy shows, food, makeup, and fashion content, among other things.
“With the introduction of miniTV, the Amazon India shopping app has become a single platform for consumers to buy from millions of brands, make payments, and enjoy free entertainment videos,” according to Amazon. The new video streaming service is currently available only on Android devices. The iOS and web platform versions will be announced in the coming months.
Comedians such as Ashish Chanchlani, Amit Bhadana, Round2Hell, Harsh Beniwal, Shruti Arjun Anand, Elvish Yadav, Prajakta Koli, Swagger Sharma, Aakash Gupta, and others have worked with the e-commerce beast. There will also be content on technology, design, and beauty. Amazon’s miniTV will also incorporate content from TVF, Pocket Aces, and other major production companies.
The service’s food section includes videos from Kabita’s Kitchen, Cook with Nisha, and Gobble, among others. Amazon promises a slew of new and exclusive videos in the coming weeks.
It’s important to note that Amazon Prime and miniTV are two distinct platforms.
Amazon MiniTV vs Amazon Prime Video
Amazon’s miniTV is the online retailer’s second video streaming service. The first is still Prime Video, which requires a paid subscription to access. Amazon is currently promoting Prime videos with a lot of content.
“miniTV is completely free to use and does not require the installation of any additional apps. Prime Video, which comes with a Prime membership, offers an array of award-winning Amazon Originals, new movies, and TV shows in English and nine Indian languages. Depending on the viewer’s preference, Prime Video can be accessed via the app or streamed on smart TVs.
MiniTV, in contrast to Prime Video, will not require a subscription and will only offer free video content to all subscribers.
How can you get access to Amazon’s miniTV?
To watch miniTV, simply launch the Amazon app on your Android phone. Right now, there is no separate way to use the new service. Simply open the Amazon app and scroll down a little to find miniTV. If you find it, tap on the miniTV to go to a new section with free web series and other content.
Because the subscription service is included in the app, MiniTV would make the Amazon India shopping app a single destination for consumers who want to browse for products, make payments, or watch free entertainment content.
