Amazon's Lovefilm Signs Streaming Deal to Launch ABC TV On Demand in U.K.

Jan 16, 2012

Lovefilm U.K. Ltd., an Amazon company, has partnered with the Disney-ABC Television Group in a deal that will bring full seasons of several of ABC Studios' American television series such as Castle and all six seasons of Lost -- which will be available this month -- to Lovefilm members with streaming packages.

Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers & Sisters, among others, will be available on-demand later this year. Shows will be launched as full seasons after their first run on U.K. pay and/or free TV. Previous seasons of some series will even be available to members before the next season airs on U.K. television.

This latest TV content deal follows a number of recent TV deals Lovefilm has made, including with BBC and ITV, PLC, among others.
