Amazon Adds Popular Shows From A&E, History And Lifetime To Prime Instant Video


Amazon Instant Video is one of the best reasons to sign up for Amazon Prime. It’s not as good as Netflix yet, but it’s getting there, and it’s cheaper. To make things better, Amazon just announced that they’re adding A&E’s networks to Amazon Instant Video.

The licensing agreement between Amazon and A&E gives Prime Instant Video customers access to popular shows from A&E, bio, History, and Lifetime. So now you can watch all the shenanigans of Duck Dynasty right from your iPad or Kindle Fire.

“In a year we have more than doubled the Prime Instant Video selection for our Prime members,” said Brad Beale, Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition for Amazon. “We remain focused on adding TV episodes and movies to Prime Instant Video that we think our customers will enjoy. A+E Networks has some of the most popular shows on television and we know our customers will love streaming the A+E content with Prime Instant Video.”

Amazon’s deal includes shows like Pawn Stars, Storage Wars, and Dance Moms. So if you’re into crappy reality TV, this might be the best news you’ve heard all year.
