Amazon reportedly working on a new mobile-focused streaming service


Amazon may be working on a new streaming service with a focus on mobile, a recent trademark application and job ad by the company reveal.

As reported earlier this week by Variety, Amazon has applied for a trademark for Amazon Fuse last month, with the application describing ti as a service "related to the transmission of entertainment services, including audio and video content, over the internet and mobile networks."

More information about Fuse is revealed in a recent Amazon job ad:

“Amazon Fuse is a newly launched product and team at Amazon. Amazon Fuse enables international partners to offer Amazon subscription services to their customers. This provides Amazon with expanded customer reach and international distribution. The Fuse business is primarily working with mobile operators across the globe to bring Prime Video, Music, Kindle, and Prime to hundreds of millions of customers.”

Although we don't know what Fuse exactly is at this point, it could be a new service that will allow mobile operators to tie their offerings in with Amazon's, and help the company widen the reach of its streaming services worldwide.

Application for the Amazon Fuse trademark has also been submitted in Canada.

Streaming is all fun and games but in 3rd world countries (Jamaica) latency is high, data prices are high, speeds are slow.
