Amazon miniTV which is a free video streaming service by Amazon that was available only in its Android app has now become available to iPhone users as well. The service now supports the iOS platform. OnlyTech was able to spot the service on our iPhone earlier today.

For the unaware, Amazon miniTV is essentially an ad-based video streaming service that is currently available only to Amazon app users in India. When the service was launched, the company had said that the miniTV would feature content ranging from web series, comedy shows to food, beauty, fashion content and more.

As the streaming service is integrated within the app, miniTV makes the Amazon India shopping app a single destination for customers wanting to shop for products, make payments or watch free entertainment videos. All the users have to do is open up their Amazon India app and click on the miniTV section to watch free video content. This works much like the streaming service offered through in-app portals like on MyJio and Flipkart app.

miniTV is the second video entertainment offering by Amazon. The first remains to be Prime Video which requires a paid subscription to work. Amazon has recently hiked its Prime subscription charges from Rs 999 to Rs 1499 for an annual membership.

Amazon’s miniTV features content produced by TVF, Pocket Aces and other production majors. In addition, it provides content from comedians including – Ashish Chanchlani, Amit Bhadana, Round2Hell, Harsh Beniwal, Shruti Arjun Anand, Elvish Yadav, Prajakta Koli, Swagger Sharma, Aakash Gupta and Nishant Tanwar. miniTV will keep on adding more new and exclusive videos for its users in the coming months.
