Today, Walmart announced a partnership with video startup Eko. Walmart struck a deal with MGM Holdings earlier this week to create original content for Vudu. The first original show that will come out of Walmart’s deal with MGM is a remake of “MR MOM” which is expected to debut in 2019. Walmart doesn’t have any plan to launch separate subscription for video services, maybe they are more focused on strengthing Vudu platform. Walmart is also focusing more on videos which relate to the middle class and working class. Walmart has to come up with a good business plan because the company has competition with retail giant Amazon which already wins over customer loyalty with Amazon prime video which provides original content. Now, only time will tell how video services benefit the company!
