Amazon, CBS exclusive content deal
October 2, 2015
Building on the success of Amazon’s exclusive in-season licensing agreement for Under the Dome and Extant, Amazon and CBS Corporation have agreed a new multi-year, multi-series agreement to make Prime Video the exclusive subscription streaming home for three new CBS summer series through 2018.
The first new CBS series included in this deal will be next summer’s comic-thriller BrainDead, which Prime members in the US will be able to stream just four days after broadcast at no additional charge to their membership.
“Prime members have loved having access to series like Under the Dome and Extant just four days after broadcast, and we’re excited to continue to offer in-season availability of more great CBS summer series over the next three years,” said Brad Beale, Amazon Vice President of Digital Video Content Acquisition. “We are also always working to ensure our Prime members have the best selection, and we know they will continue to enjoy unlimited access to a wide array of CBS titles to binge-watch anytime, anywhere.”
