New Licensing Deal Brings Viacom Shows to Amazon Instant Video

Posted Fri Feb 10, 2012 at 07:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

Older shows from Spike, Comedy Central, MTV, and Nickelodeon will be added.

Amazon is working hard to add new content to its video services, and a new deal with Viacom does just that. Episodes of shows from the usual assortment of Viacom's TV channels have been added to Prime Instant Video.

The shows coming to Amazon aren't anything shocking or new - it seems to mostly be the same content that Netflix offers. Still, the addition of shows like 'Yo Gabba Gabba,' 'Jersey Shore,' and 'Chappele's Show' will certainly bring smiles to the faces of Prime members.

There's still a rumor floating around that Amazon is going to break off it streaming service into something separate from the rest of Amazon, but nothing to show for it quite yet.
