Ready to get your Antiques Roadshow on?

The streaming selection at Amazon keeps looking better and better. They're not to the point where Netflix has anything to worry about, but when it comes to television shows - this seems to be their main focus in recent months - it's starting to look pretty appealing.

If the service were available Today they've added 1,000 new television episodes from PBS, including 'NOVA', 'Frontline' and 'Antiques Roadshow'. You'll also find the Ken Burns documentaries 'Civil War,' 'Jazz,' and 'Baseball.'

Amazon says that, of course, this isn't it for them. More Fox shows are coming to the lineup including 'Malcolm in the Middle' and 'King of the Hill,' as well as the Julia Child cooking show 'The French Chef.' All this, plus free two-day shipping for $79 a year.
