'Top Model,' 'Tara,' 'Undercover Boss,' 'Raymond' Available on Prime Video Service 2/13/2013 6:38 AM Eastern

 

CBS has reached an expanded content licensing deal with Amazon.com.

Under the agreement, CBS and Showtime series including America's Next Top Model, Everybody Loves Raymond, Jericho, The L Word, Undercover Boss and United States of Tara will be available to subscribers of Amazon's Prime Instant Video service.

Financial terms were not disclosed. Earlier this week, CBS and Amazon made a deal to put episodes of CBS' new summer series Under the Dome online via Prime four days after the air.

"We're very pleased to extend our relationship with Amazon and their Prime Instant Video service," Scott Koondel, chief corporate licensing offer for CBS Corp., said in a statement.  "Clearly the appetite for CBS programming continues to be very healthy, and we look forward to continuing to reach and establish new fans through Amazon's terrific platform."

"CBS was one of our earliest content partners for Prime Instant Video and our Prime customers have consistently told us how much they love having access to great CBS and Showtime shows," said Brad Beale, director of digital video content acquisition for Amazon. "Adding a wider selection of great TV series, while extending our already popular selection of CBS programming, continues to make Prime an even better deal for customers -- and we love that."

Amazon Prime subscribers will continue to have access to CBS series including Medium, The Tudors, Star Trek and I Love Lucy.

Amazon recently announced that Prime Instant Video will soon become the exclusive online subscription home PBS series Downton Abbey.
