Amazon cancels its first live TV show ‘Style Code Live’

Amazon has decided to end their first live TV show, Style Code Live, which aired every weeknight since its debut in March of last year. The QVC-like experimental show consisted of regular hosts Lyndsey Rodrigues, Rachel Smith, Frankie Grande, and celebrity guests giving style and beauty tips which featured products that could be purchased directly from the Amazon page where the show could be streamed for free. While Amazon has built up a strong stable of on-demand original programming, they haven’t manage to find the same success with live content. That said, it’s probably safe to say this won’t be the last live show created by Amazon.

Amazon will stream Thursday night NFL games this year

Amazon has acquired the rights to stream this year’s 10 Thursday night NFL games. Twitter picked up the rights to Thursday night games last year for $10 million, and released a Fire TV video app for access, but now Amazon has paid $50 million for this year’s rights. CBS and NBC will each still broadcast 5 games, but Amazon will also stream the network’s coverage for free to Prime members. Amazon is rumored to be working on their own TV subscription service to compete with Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, DirecTV Now, and the just launched YouTube TV service, so this deal with the NFL may also be a way to add a little more live sports to the lineup of their own cable service.
