Illustration for article titled Amazon Prime Now Has a Lot More TV Shows Thanks to Viacom

Like Netflix and Hulu before it, Amazon has inked a deal with Viacom to bring TV shows from all its networks (MTV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, BET, Spike, etc.) to the Prime streaming service. Beavis and Butthead marathon, anyone?

Amazon isn't saying how many episodes will arrive in the deal, but they did say that Prime now has 15,000 movies and TV shows. But the bulk of their offering is god awful, so this new deal will help. Considerably. And now that Teen Mom is available, I think Sam might be one step closer to canceling his Netflix subscription. [Amazon]

I wish there were easy ways to utilize Instant Videos through my TV. If Amazon could get on the PS3 or internet-connected Bluray players or something, that would be pretty sweet.
