Amazon is set to roll out streaming video service Gaijin Entertainment on Thursday.
The subscription-based service will stream films and TV series from the company’s catalog of over 400 titles.
The service will launch in Australia in the coming months, with a U.S. launch planned for later in the year.
Gaijin will allow consumers to watch movies and TV shows for free through the service’s app.
Users will be able to buy and rent movies, TV shows and other digital content from the service, and stream them directly from the device.
The company, founded in 2011 by Chinese investors, announced its first-ever Australian streaming service in July, and has since expanded the service to other countries.
The launch of Gaijins streaming service comes at a time when streaming video has become a significant part of the entertainment landscape, as users increasingly turn to streaming services to watch their favourite shows and movies.
It’s not just Hollywood which is expanding its offerings to offer the service.
Amazon has also expanded its service to include live TV, and the company has also recently launched Prime Music, which will stream content from its catalog.
