Walmart Launching Streaming Service?
Move over Netflix & Amazon, Walmart is reportedly working on a streaming service of their own with both a subscription and free option & completely ad-supported. The Walmart pay service would charge $8 per month, according to The Information which is almost $3 per month less than Netflix. The company also believes that while Netflix and Amazon Prime Video have strong customer bases on the east and west coast, they haven’t captured the loyalty of people in the middle of the country, who historically have been among Walmart’s strongest customers.
While there’s no word on what sort of content the new service would provide, Walmart already owns the movie-streaming service Vudu, which has several thousand titles available for individual purchase or rental.
