Here you go, fans of Pawn Stars, Storage Wars and Dance Moms: A+E Networks programming — including some unscripted series that Netflix dropped last fall — will be available to people who pay $79 a year for Amazon’s Prime service. It announced today a licensing deal to offer previous seasons of shows from channels including A&E, bio, History and Lifetime. “We remain focused on adding TV episodes and movies to Prime Instant Video that we think our customers will enjoy,” says Amazon’s Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition Brad Beale. Devices capable of playing the videos include the Kindle Fire HD (of course); Apple’s iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch; Roku; Xbox 360; PlayStation 3; and the Wii U. The retailer says that Prime customers now can watch more than 33,000 movies and TV shows at no additional cost. No word on financial terms for the deal with A+E.
