Amazon recently announced that they have made a digital video license deal with 20th Century Fox that will take Amazon's Prime instant videos to more than 11,000 movies and TV shows. Personally I don't go to Amazon to watch any instant streaming films, so this really isn't that big of a deal to me. I'm actually interested to know how many of you actually go to Amazon to watch streaming films.
Here's the full press released with all the details:
Amazon.com today announced a licensing agreement with FOX that will allow Amazon Prime members to instantly stream a broad selection of popular movies and TV shows from the FOX library. This deal will bring the total number of Prime instant videos to more than 11,000 movies and TV shows later this fall.
FOX titles available to Prime members will include contemporary movies such as, "Speed," "Mrs. Doubtfire," "Doctor Dolittle," "Last of the Mohicans," and "Office Space," as well as classics like "The Longest Day," "All About Eve," "9 to 5," and "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." FOX also brings to Prime members a selection of popular TV series including "24," "The X-Files," "NYPD Blue," "Arrested Development," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Ally McBeal," and newly available on digital video, "The Wonder Years."
"We have received very positive feedback from Prime members about Prime instant videos. Customers love the instant access to thousands of movie and TV favorites," said Steve Oliver, director of Video at Amazon.com. "Since the launch of Prime instant videos in February, we have more than doubled the library to 11,000 titles and will continue to add more of our customers’ favorite movies and TV shows to Prime instant videos."
