Amazon On Wensday reached an agreement allowing customers to watch thousands of CBS television shows online.
Amazon Prime subscribers will have access to 2,000 full-season episodes from 18 CBS shows, including Numb3rs, Medium, Frasier, and Cheers. Amazon did not provide a timeline for when the shows will be available, except to say that "this summer," Amazon Instant Video customers will also have access to dozens of CBS shows.
Seattle-based Amazon launched Prime Video streaming earlier this year with 5,000 catalog movies and TV programs as a free add-on to its $79 annual loyalty membership program that includes free two-day shipping on most purchases and one-day delivery on small-ticket items.
"Our new deal with CBS makes Amazon Prime even better for customers," Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com CEO, said in a statement. "We’re excited to add thousands of popular CBS programs to our already great selection, all of which stream at no additional cost to Amazon Prime members."
