Amazontube? A potential new YouTube rival on the horizon

It seems that e-commerce giant Amazon is getting ready to take the fight directly to its rival Google by planning to launch a YouTube like video-sharing platform.

Google and Amazon haven't had the best relationship over the years.

Amazon and Google have been feuding for some time now and it first started back in September when the latter pulled YouTube support from the Amazon Echo Show.

Google's service starts at $35 a month and is now available in more than 80 cities around the U.S., enabling subscribers to watch more than 35 traditional cable channels in a web browser or on other devices, including Android phones and tablets, Xbox One, and a number of late-model Samsung and LG smart TVs. A couple of months later, YouTube reappeared on the Amazon Echo Show only to have its access revoked again. Both names hint at a streaming video feature that Amazon will offer to Echo users.

Tyron Woodley would train Floyd Mayweather for Conor McGregor rematch in UFC
It sounds a bit insane for him to be talking about a transition from boxing to MMA at this stage of his life. Meanwhile, White confirmed to ESPN that the UFC was in talks with Mayweather about a possible deal.


According to a collection of rumors, however, Amazon may not be exclusively counting on the generosity of Alphabet executives for its video options.

The Bezos-led tech juggernaut is now being reported as having filed two trademarks for "Amazontube" and "Opentube" with the USPTO on the very day that Google announced its decision.

If that seems like a stretch, the trademark filings describe the dissemination of "non-downloadable pre-recorded audio, visual and audiovisual works via wireless networks" that would "enable users to share content, photos, videos, text, data, images and other electronic works".

Meanwhile, DomainNameWire spotted a handful of different URLs registered to Amazon too. Extending that to cover video might tap into the frustration many YouTubers have expressed about the service's recent clampdown on advertising revenue, which has seen many videos unexpectedly demonetized.
