Their fight over fictional content doesn’t need introduction, but now the two streaming giants – Netflix and Amazon Prime Video have broadened their horizon. The latest to catch their fancy is soccer documentaries. Buzz is that Netflix & Amazon Prime have approached Manchester City, Liverpool & Chelsea about documentaries about the inner workings of the clubs.

Previously, Liverpool tied with Fox Soccer and Channel 5 in 2012 for a similar documentary. So it may be game to have something on the digital platform this time.

Manchester United, on the other hand, may not enter this tie up; instead they may put it all up on MUTV channel.

While audiences have made the shift from TV to web for entertainment, TV is still the go-to place for live TV. And these two streaming giants want to enter this space, by offering something unique.

Let’s wait and watch if soccer fans have something fun to stream soon.
