Amazon is aggressively entering entertainment — with two big advantages

Everything old is new again. Tie-dye is back. A whole new generation is hooked on Friends and questioning the validity of Ross and Rachel’s break. And online bookseller-turned-Everything Store Amazon is returning to its roots and disrupting media.

Consumers increasingly favor streaming services over traditional TV and Netflix remains the most popular. According to the American Customer Satisfaction Index, Netflix also has a satisfaction score of 81, higher than all of its competitors.

“The whole ecosystem of video production is in a giant state of flux. You see Roma being released in theaters and on Netflix simultaneously,” says Dan Taitz, President of Penthera, a mobile video download solution. “Players like Netflix and Amazon are going directly to content creators and cutting out the production studios. And now Disney and NBC are launching new services, and there will be others. Everyone’s scrambling.”

Netflix is also scrambling, as Amazon has become its biggest competitor. While the ecommerce giant is investing heavily in entertainment, projected to spend at least $5 billion on content this year, it’s everything else that poses such a threat.

“Amazon knows who you really are”

Jeff Bezos achieved his goal of creating an “Everything Store” to such a degree that it’s easy to forget Amazon began as an online bookstore he ran out of his garage. Twenty five years later, it’s books that foreshadow the company’s future in entertainment.

In 2017, Amazon bid for the global television rights to The Lord of the Rings alongside the likes of HBO and Netflix. It won precisely because J.R.R. Tolkien’s estate was confident that promotion for the upcoming series will result in a surge of book sales.

Amazon Lord of the Rings

“Amazon’s big play is data. Facebook knows who you want to be, but Amazon knows who you really are,” says Alan Wolk, Co-Founder and Lead Analyst at TVREV, a TV- and advertising-focused analyst group. “People may like Starbucks on Facebook even if they only go three times a year, but Amazon knows they have a standing order for Maxwell House. The advantage for a lot of these franchises is, Amazon can sell a lot of merchandise and a lot of ads.”

That point extends far beyond The Lord of the Rings. Sports content is another big entertainment focus; Prime members can stream Thursday Night Football. Last week, the company also reportedly reached a deal with the New York Yankees and Sinclair Broadcasting to purchase the YES Network.

“Amazon knows who’s tuned into the Giants game,” says Wolk. “When Eli Manning goes for a touchdown, they can put jerseys on sale and see if people buy them if they’re $38 or $40. Do they buy two minutes after the touchdown or five? It’s scary how much they know about everyone.”

“It replicates what we used to experience with cable TV”

Sports programming speaks to another strength: diversity in its offerings.

Amazon Channels

The company creates and distributes content. With Kindles and Fire TV, the ecommerce giant has a hand in where people watch it. And then there’s Amazon Channels, which allows Prime members to buy monthly subscriptions to premium networks like HBO, Showtime and Starz a la carte.

“In a sense, that replicates what we used to experience with cable TV,” says Taitz. “We’d have 200 channels, but probably only watched five of them. What Amazon brings to the table is a combination of the benefits of having a package and the benefits of having more choice.”

More streaming services are coming, but how many people are going to subscribe to all of them? There will undoubtedly be some churn. It’s less likely hurt Amazon less than some of the others because entertainment is just part of the Prime package.

Amazon is where most product searches start. The company is on track to become the largest apparel retailer in the U.S. Amazon Web Services has a 34% share of the cloud infrastructure market.

Will Amazon become a behemoth in the entertainment space? Maybe. Probably. But given Prime’s ubiquity, the company has set itself up for a win, no matter the game.

Lodge 12 Inch Cast Iron Skillet. Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet with Red Silicone Hot Handle Holder.

The Lodge Cast Iron 12-inch Skillet and Red Silicone Hot Handle Holder is a multi-functional cookware that works wonders with slow-cooking recipes and all your favorite foods. Fry up a mess of catfish, roast a chicken, or bake an apple crisp in this generous 12-inch pan that features two handles for heavy lifting and two subtle side lips for pouring. Cast iron loves a campfire, a stovetop, or an oven, and can slow-cook foods without scorching. It retains heat well so you can sear meat at higher temperatures and will keep your delicious meals warm for a long time. Whether used in a kitchen or camp, theses virtually indestructible cookware should last for generations. Made of cast iron, this Skillet evenly distributes heat from the bottom through the sidewalls. Sporting a stylish black color, the cast iron skillet looks good in most kitchens and it doubles up as an excellent source of nutritional iron. Cast Iron, like your grandmother used, still ranks as one of the best cooking utensils ever made. It gives you a nearly non-stick surface, without the possible harmful fumes generated by preheating chemically treated nonstick cookware. The American-based company, Lodge, has been fine-tuning its construction of rugged, cast-iron cookware for more than a century.

Note the black patina given to the cookware by the factory seasoning process is, in fact, vegetable oil that has been baked into a piece of cookware that has emerged from an individual sand mold. This coating of oil is a functional application and not a cosmetic application. The cookware is hanging as it rides through the electrostatic sprayer and commercial conveyer ovens at very high temperatures. This allows the oil to penetrate deeply into the pores of the iron which creates an easy release finish. As a result of this process, you may see a blister or bubble of oil at the rim, southern-most point or at the end of the handle of the cookware piece. If visible, it will rub or flake off with your finger, leaving a brown spot. Don’t worry, it’s not rust but a seasoned spot that is brown, indicative of the varnish stage of seasoning. As a matter of fact, this is the color of home seasoned iron until it has been used several times. The brown spot will turn black with use

Product Features

  • Skillet seasoned with oil for a natural, easy-release finish that improves with use
  • The right tool to sear, sauté, bake, broil, braise, fry or grill
  • At home in the oven, on the stove, on the grill or over the campfire; Great on induction cooktops
  • Easy care: hand wash, dry, rub with cooking oil
  • Silicone Hot Handle Holder protects hands from heat up to 450° F.Hand wash
