Amazon gains 'Extant' streaming rights from CBS Amazon will stream episodes of CBS' upcoming Spielberg-produced science fiction drama Extant four days after their air.
It will stream the new TV show episodes through its Prime Instant Video on Kindle and on game consoles, free to subscribers of the service, mirroring a similar deal it has with PBS for Downton Abbey.

Extant is a new science fiction drama that will air on CBS. It claims Steven Spielberg as executive producer and will star Halle Berry as Molly, a female astronaut who returns home to her family after spending a year in space.

CBS places a 13-episode straight-to-series order in August 2013. It will debut this summer.

Its a lot easier being righteous than right.
