Amazon Prime Customers Will Soon Be Able To Watch Viacom Shows
Amazon Prime, the $79 a year service that gives free 2 day shipping and $1.99 per item one day shipping, will be adding Viacom shows to it’s online video streaming service. They signed an agreement with Viacom to add shows from their multitude of channels such as Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, MTV, and TV Land to name a few.
For customers who have a Prime account, you also get free access to thousands of TV shows and movies which somewhat competes with Netflix. If you buy a good amount of stuff, Prime pays for itself over time and the online video streaming service is a nice added bonus.
“This deal with Viacom brings Prime customers and Kindle Fire users thousands of comedies, kids’ shows, reality TV and much more from some of the best cable networks available,” said Brad Beale, director of video content acquisition for Amazon. “We are constantly working to improve the service by adding the shows that our customers enjoy the most.”
“The number of videos bought or rented and the number of customers on Amazon Instant Video, the company’s online streaming service, more than doubled in the fourth quarter from a year earlier, Amazon said last month.”
The e-commerce site has grown massively over the years and has a very large and loyal customer base. Great customer service is key, as they demonstrate, and giving more value to the consumer leads to more sales in the long run. Whether people will soon be watching Jersey Shore or not, well, let’s hope they stay away from that show.
