Having just launched its new Kindle Fire tablet, Amazon.com announced a content deal with Disney-ABC Television Group to give Kindle owners more to watch. Under the new licensing agreement, Amazon Prime members will be able to instantly stream a broad selection of library content from ABC Studios, Disney Channel, ABC Family and Marvel.
The agreement was brokered by Disney-ABC Domestic Television with Amazon.
Popular Disney-ABC Television Group offerings for Prime members will include:
Prior seasons of current ABC hit series “Grey’s Anatomy” (pictured)
All episodes of recent ABC favorite “Lost”
Prior seasons of Disney Channel’s popular animated series “Phineas & Ferb”
Prior seasons of ABC Family’s groundbreaking series “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” including the most recently aired episodes from summer 2011
Prior seasons of Marvel’s animated shows “Spider-Man,” “X-Men Evolution,” “Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers” and “Iron Man: Extremis”
All episodes of ABC Family’s “Greek”
All episodes of “Felicity” from ABC Studios
Amazon Prime members can watch these TV shows on over 300 different devices, including the recently announced Kindle Fire — which Amazon is billing as “the Kindle for movies, TV shows, music, magazines, apps, books, games, and more.” Kindle Fire buyers get a free month of Amazon Prime with their purchase.
“We are excited to add some of the very best content available from Disney-ABC to Prime instant video,” said Brad Beale, director of video content acquisition for Amazon. “This includes every episode of past seasons from the ABC hits Lost and Grey’s Anatomy, fan favorites like Felicity and Greek, the popular Disney Channel show Phineas & Ferb and great animated series from Marvel. We’re working hard to add even more selection for Kindle Fire customers and Prime members leading up to the holidays, and expect to have nearly 13,000 titles available in Prime instant video by early next year.”
