Amazon share price: what’s the latest as Fox Corp agrees multi-year deal?

The US-based technology giant saw its share price edge higher after Fox Corporation agreed to a multi-year deal that will see it use Amazon Web Services for its cable and satellite broadcasting.

Amazon saw its share price edge higher over the last two sessions after partnering with Fox Corporation to help reinvent its media content delivery.

The multi-year deal will see Fox use Amazon Web Services (AWS) to build an 8K capable media platform to create, produce and deliver live and on demand content, representing the latest tie-up between a major tech company and big media organisation.

‘FOX’s media platform is pioneering the delivery of live content using AWS’s unmatched breadth of functionality and highly reliable infrastructure to usher in a new model for content delivery that will drive operational efficiency and greater agility,’ Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Amazon Werner Vogels said.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Amazon’s share price is trading at $1,781 as of 15:30 GMT on Thursday, with it up 15% since the beginning of the year.

‘Jeff Bezos wants a culture of constant innovation and improvement to flow right through the group,’ Analysts from Hargreaves Lansdown said, commenting on its third quarter results.

‘While there's been numerous failures along the way (billions of dollars' worth, in fact) successes like [AWS] business have outweighed the failures many times over.’

‘After being given the freedom to create a solution and run with it, it's since morphed into a $25bn+ business specialising in cloud computing.’
