Bloomberg: Amazon wants live sports streaming rights

The report explains that Amazon.com hired a former Sports Illustrated executive, James DeLorenzo, to head up a sports division earlier this year. In addition, the company poached a former YouTube executive, Charlie Neiman, to look into partnering with sports companies and build new business opportunities. Amazon has refused to make a public comment, but these preliminary negotiations could be the start of a whole new broadcasting platform. – Daniel Cooper, Engadget http://ift.tt/2cqudqg
