CBS Strikes Licensing Deal With Amazon for 'Under the Dome'
Episodes to be available online four days after initial broadcast

Episodes of Under the Dome, which premieres on CBS June 24, will be available on Amazon Prime's Instant Video Service four days after their initial broadcast at no additional cost to Amazon Prime members. Episodes will also be available for download and purchase at Amazon Instant Video.
"With this innovative agreement, we're giving fans more options to watch and stay current with this serialized series, and doing so in a way that protects the Television Network's C3 advertising window," said Scott Koondel, chief corporate content licensing officer, CBS Corp.
Amazon's deal for Under the Dome follows its recent acquisition of PBS' Downton Abbey, which formerly streamed on Netflix.
