Amazon Prime Instant Video Expands with PBS Kids Shows
Amazon has recently bolstered their multi-year licensing agreement with PBS via the addition of hundreds of new episodes from shows from the network’s library, including additional episodes from hit children’s shows such as Caillou, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Arthur, Wild Kratts, Dinosaur Train, and others. The expanded deal is signed fresh off the recent multi-year deal with Viacom, which also provided Amazon with more content from Viacom-owned networks such as MTV and Nickelodeon.
The PBS Kids shows that were made available on Prime Instant Video will also be available in Kindle FreeTime Unlimited, which offers books, games, educational apps, movies, and TV shows.
“This deal is exciting for Prime members and particularly for those with families — this new deal combined with the recently announced Viacom deal brings some of the most popular kids programming to Prime Instant Video, making it the perfect place for the whole family to catch up on all their favorites,” says Brad Beale, director of digital video content acquisition for Amazon.
