Amazon Radically Expands Prime Instant Video Catalog

A few months ago there was an exponential increase in the number of books in the Prime Lending Library, and it looks like the same thing has just happened with Instead Video, increasing the value of the already very valuable Amazon Prime Program.

If you've visited Amazon.com's main page in the last 24 hours, you saw this message:

Dear Customers,
We just wrapped up another deal — this time bringing in content from MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, TV Land, and VH1 — to add 2,000 new titles to Prime Instant Video. Together with the existing movies and shows from CBS, Fox, Disney-ABC, PBS, NBC, Sony, and Warner Bros., we now offer, at no additional cost, unlimited instant streaming of more than 15,000 titles.
If you’re already a Prime member, start watching now. If not, start your one-month free trial today.
Thank you for being a customer.
Jeff Bezos
Founder & CEO

Let's take a look at some of the new offerings and give our pics for shows that are worth watching.

Dora The Explorer Season 1: It's hard to call this show anything short of revolutionary in the world of children's programming. It's entertaining, interactive, and multi-cultural. Pretty much everyone has heard of Dora!

Lost Season 1: A couple years ago right around the end of the series, I got on a Lost bender and watched an episode a day from the beginning of season 1 to the end of season 6. If only I could've watched that first season for free! Now that the entire show is completed, it's the perfect time to watch it because you'll be able to zip right through without getting Lost.

The Sarah Silverman Program: Here's an honest question. Has anyone watched this show? I keep hearing that Sarah Silverman is hilarious, and I hear snippets of her act here or there, but I've never really gotten around to watching her standup or her show. Looks like it'll be really easy for me to start!

And there is a long list of hugely popular shows and movies that are now available.

Arrested Development Season 1 : One of my all-time favorite shows!

Anyway, I could go on and on, but you can peruse the Entire List of New Prime Video Additions here!
