Amazon’s Prime Instant Video service is adding to their library of hit television series now that the company has expanded their licensing agreement with CBS and its brand, the Showtime network. Fans will now be able to stream the newly added ‘America’s Next Top Model’, ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’, ‘Jericho’, ‘The L Word’, ‘Undercover Boss’ and ‘United States of Tara’, in addition to other series. Prime users will also be able to watch ‘Medium’, ‘The Tudors’, the complete ‘Star Trek’ franchise and ‘I Love Lucy’, to name a few.

“CBS was one of our earliest content partners for Prime Instant Video and our Prime customers have consistently told us how much they love having access to great CBS and Showtime shows,” Brad Beale, the Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition for Amazon, said. “Adding a wider selection of great TV series, while extending our already popular selection of CBS programming, continues to make Prime an even better deal for customers – and we love that.”

“We’re very pleased to extend our relationship with Amazon and their Prime Instant Video service,” said Scott Koondel of CBS Corporation. “Clearly the appetite for CBS programming continues to be very healthy, and we look forward to continuing to reach and establish new fans through Amazon’s terrific platform.”

Prime users can tune in to their favorite shows commercial-free on the Kindle Fire HD, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Roku, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii and Wii U.
