After Wholefoods, the deal to acquire MGM for $8.45bn is Amazon’s most expensive buy to date. The deal will help Amazon’s Prime video to add a collection of 4000 films and 17,000+ TV shows. MGM will help Amazon compete with its rivals Netflix, Disney+ as it will give them popular content that lasts longer. MGM compliments the work of Amazon studios as the main focus is on producing TV show programming rather than original feature films.
