Amazon has reportedly been in talks with the NBA, the NFL, MLB, and some smaller leauges for the rights to stream live games, according to The Wall Street Journal. They’ve specifically discussed creating a sports package with the NBA, which could possibly be teamed up with a “skinny bundle” of other live channels. Other leagues they’ve been in talks with include the World Surf League, Indian Premier Cricket League, Liga MX, and the Kontinental Hockey League. Amazon has been building out their live streaming capabilities recently, with their own live fashion show and live Showtime and Starz through Prime Video, so it sounds like more live programming is likely in the near future.
