Nostalgic baby boomers will like this new movie and TV licensing deal with Metro-Golydwn-Mayer Studios. It will enable Amazon Prime customers to stream the late 1980s TV series thirtysomething — as well as Baby Boom, the 1987 film starring Diane Keaton. The Prime Instant Video package also will include MGM’s hit films Silence of the Lambs, Dances with Wolves, Rain Man, The Good The Bad And The Ugly, and The Terminator. TV series include Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe, Dead Like Me, and The Pink Panther Show. The companies didn’t disclose much else about the terms, including how much Amazon will pay and how long the agreement runs. “MGM offers one of the most distinguished catalogs in all of Hollywood, and this deal will bring Prime Instant Video customers hundreds of new titles to enjoy on their Kindle Fire or any device compatible with Amazon Instant Video,” says Brad Beale, director of digital video content acquisition for Amazon. Prime Instant Video now includes more than 18,000 movies and TV episodes.
