A month after CBS ordered a second season of breakout summer series Under The Dome, the network has renewed its content licensing agreement with Amazon, which has been streaming the serialized drama from Steven Spielberg and Stephen King. Prime Instant Video will remain the exclusive online subscription home for the second season of Under The Dome, slated to air next summer, with episodes again available four days after their initial broadcast on CBS. Episodes of Under The Dome will also be available for purchase and download exclusively at Amazon Instant Video. “This is the way television should be,” CBS Corp CEO Leslie Moonves said at the time of Under The Dome‘s renewal, touting the blueprint the network established with the series, which could be done on a lower summer license fee thanks to strong international sales and the deal with Amazon. “It’s been a great new model.” Under The Dome is the most-watched series of the summer across broadcast and cable (14.9 million), and the #1 broadcast series in adults 18-49 (3.9/11) and adults 25-54 (5.2/13). On Amazon, the first episode of Under The Dome was the most-watched TV premiere in the history of Prime Instant Video, and the show was the most watched series this summer. “You’ll see every network try to replicate the model,” Moonves recently said. “There’s a huge appetite.” Under The Dome is produced by CBS Television Studios and Amblin TV, with Spielberg, King, Brian K. Vaughan, Neal Baer, Stacey Snider, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and Jack Bender executive producing.
