Founded in 1994, Amazon began as an online bookstore and then diversified to sell other items. Since then, it has launched its own line of consumer electronics and provides cloud computing services. Under the name "Amazon Instant Video," the company offers video streaming services and has expanded to include unique and exclusive content, such as "Transparent," which earned two Golden Globe Awards in 2015.
