NBCUniversal Joins the Amazon Instant Video Family

Amazon has been beefing up its music service as well as its instant video service. To emphasize that point, they have signed a deal with NBCUniversal to bring a metric ton of new programming to the service.

Right now, Amazon Instant Video offers NBC series like Battlestar Galactica, Friday Night Lights, Heroes, Parenthood and Parks and Recreation. Brad Beale, director of digital video content, said,

We continue to invest heavily in our content selection for Prime members and have now reached over 22,000 movies and TV episodes available instantly with unlimited streaming.

We are excited to be working with NBCUniversal to add their award-winning lineup of TV shows such as Parks and Recreation and Friday Night Lights to Prime Instant Video.

This brings Amazon's catalog to over 22,000 movies and television episodes available for instant stream for a flat rate of $80 per year. That price also gives full Amazon Prime benefits, including free shipping on Amazon purchases. If you are still trying to decide between Netflix and Hulu, this might make the decision even harder.
