Amazon confirms MGM deal
Amazon.com has secured a licensing agreement with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios adding hundreds of classic movies and hit TV episodes throughout 2012 to the Prime Instant Video catalogue. Digital video streaming and download service Prime Instant Video now features more than 18,000 movies and TV episodes to stream instantly and enjoy at no additional cost. Customers who are not Prime members can enjoy a free one month trial of Prime.
“Our customers tell us they love having tons of movies and TV shows to choose from, which is why we are focused on adding even more titles to our already extensive Prime Instant Video library,” said Brad Beale, director of digital video content acquisition for Amazon. “MGM offers one of the most distinguished catalogues in all of Hollywood, and this deal will bring Prime Instant Video customers hundreds of new titles to enjoy on their Kindle Fire or any device compatible with Amazon Instant Video. Customers can enjoy favourites like The Silence of the Lambs, Dances with Wolves, Rain Man and The Terminator, as well as fan-favourite TV series like Stargate.”
Prime customers can access Prime Instant Video on Kindle Fire or any of the many compatible Amazon Instant Video devices, including the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gaming console.
