"CBS was one of our earliest content partners for Prime Instant Video and our Prime customers have consistently told us how much they love having access to great CBS and Showtime shows," said Brad Beale, director of digital video content acquisition for Amazon. "Adding a wider selection of great TV series, while extending our already popular selection of CBS programming, continues to make Prime an even better deal for customers – and we love that."
As RTVN previously reported, Amazon's Prime Instant Video service also just announced it will be the exclusive online subscription home for the CBS summer series Under the Dome – produced by Steven Spielberg and based on Stephen King's best-selling novel of the same name – which will give Amazon Prime members unlimited access to the TV series just four days after airing and will also be available for purchase and download to all Amazon customers exclusively on Amazon Instant Video. Amazon also announced that Prime Instant Video will soon become the exclusive online subscription home for PBS hit Downton Abbey.
