Amazon advances to in-season TV streaming with CBS’s Under the Dome

Laura Hazard Owen

When CBS starts airing Stephen King’s new drama Under the Dome this summer, viewers will have two ways to watch it: On CBS or through Amazon Prime Instant Video. New episodes of Under the Dome will be available for viewing on the site four days after they’re first broadcast on CBS. It’s the first time that Prime Instant Video has offered access to an in-season show. In addition, viewers will only be able to purchase episodes of Under the Dome from Amazon.

In the release, CBS’s Scott Koondel mentioned Amazon’s connection to books as a reason why Prime Instant Video is getting the exclusive: “Amazon has the distinct combination of having a terrific video service with a huge fan base among their customers for Stephen King’s book, making them the perfect partner for this summer programming event.”
