Amazon signs licensing agreement with NBCU Within days of signing a content streaming deal with CBS, Amazon has now signed a similar deal with NBCUniversal.
The new licensing agreement will give Amazon Prime members access to movies from Universal Pictures.

A few of the titles (no new releases) are “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Elizabeth,” "Gosford Park," "Babe,” “Flipper,” “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” “Notting Hill,” “Being John Malkovich”, “Fletch,” and “Billy Elliott.”

Amazon has around 9000 movies and TV shows available for free to Amazon Prime subscribers on over 300 compatible devices.

The e-tailer's recent CBS deal was mainly for TV shows.

Rival Netflix has over 20,000 videos in its "Watch Instantly" streaming catalog.
