Amazon is on the cusp of the second largest acquisition in its history. The company, founded and managed by Jeff Bezos, officially confirmed today the flirtation that has been reported since last week. US company with $ 8.45 billion Buy MGM Film Studio. The deal was not approved by the regulators, but it should be a formality.
Metro Goldwyn Mayer consists of both film and television productions and will celebrate its centenary in three years. After purchase, Amazon will have access to a catalog of more than 4,000 movies and 17,000 series and TV shows, which have won over 180 Oscars and 100 Emmy Awards.
Amazon can greatly enrich its Prime Video streaming service offering, and like Netflix, it is proving itself among the Hollywood elite of the internet. The studio was shot with the lion as Rocky, The Silence of the Lambs, Seven Brave, or the hit series Stargate, Fargo, Vikings, and The Story of a Maid. The most valuable brand in the wallet is James Bond.
But it won’t fall for Amazon. MGM owns only half, and the other, through Eon Productions, is creatively controlled and managed by the Broccoli family. There is probably no risk that Agent 007, whatever form it takes in the future, will only appear on Prime Video.
Amazon Stream has been in the Czech Republic since December 2016. It currently has over 600 titles in the catalog, of which around 130 are with subtitles and less than 70 with dubbing. Localization is improving every month, and recently you can also pay for service with crowns. The first six months cost 79 CZK, then you pay 159 CZK. Prime Video should soon offer a clean user interface.
