Amazon Prime Instant Video adds PBS content Amazon has announced the expansion of their content deal with PBS, adding classic series like Sesame Street and Frontline.
Through its $79-a-year Amazon Prime service, users are given free 2-day shipping on all items through Amazon, and free access to over 12,000 shows and movies on their PCs, tablets and TVs.

Most notably, Amazon Prime Instant Video is a major selling point for the new Kindle Fire, Amazon's first foray into the tablet market. The $199 device is built around Amazon's ecosystem of services including Cloud Drive, Prime, MP3, VOD and their e-tailing store.

Says Amazon:

Our expanded relationship with PBS will bring the total number of titles available for Prime instant video to over 12,000. We are committed to bringing Prime Members and Kindle Fire owners even more compelling content very soon.

PBS joins recently announced FOX television shows 24, Arrested Development, The X-Files, Ally McBeal, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and The Wonder Years.

Coming soon, we'll be adding Malcolm in the Middle, King of the Hill, and episodes from Julia Child's classic cooking series, The French Chef.
