Amazon inks new programming deal with CBS

Amazon has extended the terms of a programming deal with CBS, adding a raft of new series to its Prime streaming service.

The deal between Amazon and CBS gives the former content from the US CBS network and from the CBS Television Distribution catalogue.

The new deal also allows Amazon to add shows from cable network Showtime.

New titles available to Amazon’s Prime Instant Video customers include CBS shows Next Top Model, Everybody Loves Raymond and Undercover Boss.

Showtime titles include The Tudors and The L Word.

There will also be classic library series including the complete Star Trek franchise.

“We’re very pleased to extend our relationship with Amazon and their Prime Instant Video service,” said Scott Koondel, chief corporate licensing officer for CBS Corporation. “Clearly the appetite for CBS programming continues to be very healthy, and we look forward to continuing to reach and establish new fans through Amazon’s terrific platform.”
