Amazon Prime Adds Star Trek' and 'Stargate Atlantis' to its Offerings
Amazon Prime Instant Video has added more to its collection of movies and TV series for its subscribers with the recent announcement that it has entered into an agreement with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) to add hundreds of titles to its library. This follows a deal made with Paramount just the month before. This leaves Amazon Prime with roughly 18,000 selections for people to choose from for their viewing pleasure.
The MGM Studios contract brings to Amazon Prime comedies and dramatic movies such as A Fish Called Wanda, Baby Boom, Child's Play, Moonstruck, The Silence of the Lambs, and Untamed Heart. On the TV side of the board, science fiction fans can enjoy episodes of Stargate Atlantis and Dead Like Me. Other shows included in the deal are Thirty Something and The Pink Panther Show.
The earlier agreement with Paramount adds films such as Breakfast at Tiffany's and Star Trek to the Amazon inventory. The movies will be added gradually over a three-year period.
Amazon Prime Instant Video services are available on a variety of devices, including Amazon Kindle, Roku, and Sony PlayStation 3. Subscribers belong to Amazon Prime which, for a fee of $79 per year, provides streaming access for free of the entire instant video library, free two-day shipping for products acquired on Amazon.com, and other special features.
Brad Beale, Amazon's Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition, stated, "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,"
