Amazon announced today that it's adding a new batch of CBS and Showtime reruns to its video-streaming service.
The new additions to Amazon's Prime Instant Video service include "America's Next Top Model," "Everybody Loves Raymond," "Jericho," "The L Word," "Undercover Boss," and "United States of Tara." This selection builds on the existing licensing agreement between Amazon and CBS (the parent company of CNET).
"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," Brad Beale, Amazon's director of digital video content acquisition, said in a press release.
Amazon already had the rights to stream other CBS reruns. And earlier this week, the two companies revealed that Amazon is also picking up the new series "Under the Dome" and streaming episodes just four days after they air on CBS. This was big news, considering that CBS doesn't ink many agreements for its current programming.
The deals highlight the grab for content between Prime Instant Video and other video streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. Earlier this month, Amazon announced that it had nabbed the exclusive online rights for popular PBS series "Downtown Abbey." Netflix, meanwhile, came out with its original series, "House of Cards."
