While Facebook Watch is moving at a slow pace, rumors suggest that Amazon would have plans to launch a new service that could compete directly with YouTube.
The story, revealed by Engadget, reveals that the American retailer could provide a video transmission service that works through user uploads, just like on YouTube.
According to the publication, Amazon filed two trademark applications for “Amazontube” and “Opentube” and describes the service as “pre-recorded audio, visual and audiovisual works not transferable over wireless networks”.
The portal will also “allow users to share content, photos of videos, text, data, images and other electronic works”.
In addition, as DomainNameWire found, Amazon registered domain names including AlexaOpenTube.com, AmazonAlexaTube.com and AmazonOpenTube.com.
If Amazon is really going to create a rival for YouTube, this is yet to be seen.
