Amazon.com has bulked up its Amazon Prime online streaming service with more shows from NBC, including "Parks and Recreation," "Parenthood" and "Friday Night Lights."
Hundreds of past episodes of these NBC programs will be available through Amazon Prime, and can be watched at no additional charge for subscribers who pay a flat $79 annual fee.
The expanded licensing agreement with NBCUniversal adds to the library of titles available through the subscription service, which competes with other digital providers, including Netflix. There are now a total of 22,000 movies and TV episodes that can be streamed from Amazon on the Kindle Fire tablet and through other devices, including home computers and laptops as well as Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3.
Viewers who are not Amazon Prime subscribers may rent or purchase the shows at prices starting at $3.99.
