The new acquisition, which has become the largest in the last 5 years, will allow Amazon to compete more effectively with streaming services such as Netflix and Disney+.

The American corporation Amazon has closed a deal to acquire the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film company for $ 8.5 billion dollars. This was reported on Thursday by Bloomberg.

According to him, the merger became possible after the EU antimonopoly regulator found earlier on Tuesday that the deal did not create problems with competition in the EU countries. According to Bloomberg, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission may challenge the agreement in the future if a majority of its members vote to file a lawsuit.

The new acquisition, which has become the largest in the last 5 years, will allow Amazon to compete more effectively with streaming services such as Netflix and Disney+. So, for example, Amazon will get the rights to “James Bond” – a franchise that earned about $ 7 billion at the global box office.
