Amazon to Stream Shows From CBS' Library

Site will present older, off-air titles


In an attempt to build its digital video service, Amazon has signed a deal with CBS that will add a number of CBS television shows to the site.

According to AllThingsD’s Peter Kafka, the deal is more or less a replica of the agreement between CBS and Netflix reached last February, which gave the streaming site access to recent shows that are no longer on the air, like Medium, and older titles that the network owns but aired elsewhere, such as Cheers and Frasier, but didn’t include any in-season programs.
