West Wing, Fringe to come to Amazon Prime
Online retailer Amazon announced today an agreement that will see Warner Bros. content appearing on Amazon's Kindle Fire media tablet. The deal will bring shows like Fringe and The West Wing to Amazon's Prime Instant Video catalog. The deal represents another step by Amazon to strengthen its content library as the retailer is thought to be preparing to a successor to its Kindle Fire tablet this summer.
Last month, Amazon inked a similar deal with MGM, which brought that studio's TV and movie offerings to Prime Instant. The deal announced today brings Amazon Instant's total catalog to more than 18,000 movies and TV shows available for streaming. Amazon Prime Instant Video is available to customers that sign up for Amazon Prime, the company's 2-day shipping service, which costs $79 per year.
