Amazon signs content deal with Disney-ABC TV

Amazon has announced a new licensing agreement with Disney-ABC Television that will give Amazon Prime subscribers access to a slew of new content. Shows will come from the group's ABC Studios, Disney Channel, ABC Family and Marvel. The new content is aimed at bolstering the already strong content line-up available for Amazon's Kindle Fire Android tablet with owners receiving free access for one month, right out of the box.

Shows now available as part of the new deal include Grey's Anatomy, Phineas & Ferb, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Spider-Man, X-Men Revolution, Iron Man: Extremis, Greek and Felicity.

Before the new deal with Disney-ABC was signed, Amazon Prime subscribers already had access to commercial-free content including over 13,000 movies and TV shows with content from CBS, Fox, PBS, NBCUniversal, Sony and Warner Bros.

Since its release, Amazon has said that it has sold 'millions' of its new Kindle Fire tablet. This latest content deal will help to cement its assault on Apple's dominant iPad and iTunes combination. Amazon has heavily modified the Android 2.2 operating system so that its functions direct users to Amazon's content delivery services giving it a real chance of becoming a leading tablet platform.
