Amazon teams with A&E Networks, adding more content to Prime Instant Video

Amazon is adding more content to its Prime Instant Video service, announcing today an agreement with A+E Networks. Shows like Pawn Stars, Storage Wars and Dance Moms will be available on Amazon’s streaming video service, along with content from A&E, bio, HISTORY and Lifetime.

“We remain focused on adding TV episodes and movies to Prime Instant Video that we think our customers will enjoy,” Brad Beale, Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition for Amazon, said in the press release. “A+E Networks has some of the most popular shows on television and we know our customers will love streaming the A+E content with Prime Instant Video.”

As The Verge notes, this comes a few months after A+E’s licensing agreement with Netflix ended.

Prime, which costs $79 per year, now boasts more than 33,000 movies and TV episodes for members to stream instantly across devices like the Kindle Fire HD, iPad, iPhone and several others.

Amazon penned a separate agreement two weeks ago with Turner Broadcasting and Warner Bros. to bring The Closer and Falling Skies to Prime.
