Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN ) will be the only online subscription service offering Steven King fans the Under the Dome television series throughout the season.
Set to premiere on CBS (NYSE: CBS ) on June 24, Under the Dome was a critically acclaimed and No. 1 best-seller when it was published in 2009. The content licensing agreement Amazon and CBS entered establishes that Under the Dome will be an in-season, online subscription-video-on-demand (SVOD). That means that Prime customers will be able to stream the series' episodes four days after the CBS broadcast.
Just last week, Amazon announced that Prime Instant Video will be the exclusive online subscription home for PBS hit Downton Abbey. Prime Instant Video now spans more than 36,000 movies and TV episodes. All are available to stream on Kindle Devices and Kindle apps. Prime Instant Video comes free with Amazon Prime -- Amazon's $79-a-year service that includes free two-day shipping and access to Amazon's lending library.
