A lot of moves have been made suddenly in regards to online video streaming for TV and film. Netflix signed a deal hoping to quell the subscriber rebellion they’re experiencing and Amazon just got FOX. I wonder if they will then be some sort of launch partner for the Amazon-branded tablet that is set to be shown off Wednesday in New York.
Fox Content Coming To Amazon Prime
So Amazon, who I don’t really think of when I’m looking for some streaming video content, has signed a new deal with FOX to being their classic series to the online video streaming service. The X-Files is set to join other classics like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Arrested Development, The Wonder Years and 24.
It’s all going to be Amazon Prime content and if you add that to their other deals with CBS, NBCU, Sony and Warner Bros, they have just about all the big names streaming out of their 11,000+ piece content library.
The Wonder Years is an Amazon exclusive it seems while much of the other FOX content is readily available on a host of other on-demand services and online video streaming sites like Netflix and Hulu.
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 “NYPD Blue,” and “Ally McBeal.”
