Disney and Amazon announced a deal this morning to bring nearly a thousand episodes of select TV shows to Amazon Prime Instant Video offering. Amazon Prime Members will soon be able to watch shows like Felicity, Grey’s Anatomy, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, as well as other hit shows produced and broadcast by ABC and Disney.
“We are excited to add some of the very best content available from Disney-ABC to Prime instant video,” said Brad Beale, director of video content acquisition for Amazon. “This includes every episode of past seasons from the ABC hits Lost and Grey’s Anatomy, fan favorites like Felicity and Greek, the popular Disney Channel show Phineas & Ferb and great animated series from Marvel. We’re working hard to add even more selection for Kindle Fire customers and Prime members leading up to the holidays, and expect to have nearly 13,000 titles available in Prime instant video by early next year.”
Amazon Prime members can watch these TV shows on over 300 different devices, including the recently announced Kindle Fire, Android tablets, Roku set top boxes, and more. Prime Instant Video is a free service that is bundled into the cost of an Amazon Prime membership, which costs $79 a year for free two-day shipping, and these videos are available to members at no extra cost. It also includes movies and TV shos from CBS, Fox, PBS, Paramount, and most of the major production studios in the US. Kindle Fire buyers will also get 30 days of Amazon Prime for free.
