Report: Costco considers offering on-demand streaming service

Service will reportedly be free for executive members


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Costco may be hopping on the streaming train. The wholesale giant is reportedly considering offering an on-demand video service.

It is expected that the service will be free for “executive”-level members.

The Information reports the membership warehouse has spoken with “at least” two streaming video providers, but talks with one have ended due to a disagreement about the deal’s terms.

This isn’t the first time Costco has looked into streaming. Last December, the company aired a brief promo for a movie-streaming service, Fandor.

Costco has two levels of membership -- a lower-tier option and the executive-level.

Ties with a streaming service have not been confirmed by Costco.
