Amazon Luna briefly teases a “Family Channel”
Amazon Luna is all about channels, each a different subscription that unlocks a different set of games. Apparently, one channel that Amazon is working on for Luna is called the “Family Channel.” This showed up briefly for some users last week, as documented by The Nerf Report, showing only one game in the E-rated game “Death Squared.” The “Family Channel” has since disappeared for Amazon Luna subscribers, but it definitely has some interesting implications for the future.
