Another day, another streaming deal for Amazon.
The Seattle online giant just signed a deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment for the rights to exclusively stream the popular FX show “Justified,” as well as the nonexclusive rights for “The Shield.”
Episodes will be available online for Amazon Prime subscribers and others can watch episodes for $1.99 each.
Two weeks ago, Amazon claimed the rights to stream CBS’s new show ‘Under The Dome,‘ marking the first time the company will have exclusive streaming rights for a show that’s still in-season.
That news came just days after Amazon announced it purchased exclusive streaming rights to the popular PBS series ”Downton Abbey.”
This is another win for Amazon in its streaming battle with Netflix, who recently premiered its own, exclusive original series “House of Cards.”
Amazon Prime is available for $79 per year, which comes with free-two day shipping on millions of items.
