Amazon makes 'Downton Abbey' a Prime exclusive
Amazon has announced today that it has struck a deal with PBS to make 'Downton Abbey' an exclusive for Prime Instant Video users.

Starting on June 18th, all seasons will be available exclusively through Amazon. Rival services, which have at least one season available, will lose access at the beginning of July.

Future seasons, if they are ever produced, will be part of the agreement, as well.

"Our Prime customers have spoken-they can't get enough of the MASTERPIECE CLASSIC series 'Downton Abbey.' The series is consistently in our top most watched TV shows each week, making it the most popular TV series with Prime Instant Video customers, ever," said Brad Beale, Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition for Amazon. "Prime Instant Video will soon be the exclusive subscription video streaming home for 'Downton Abbey.'"

    Not a huge fan of these exclusivity deals...
    Amazon gets it so Netflix cannot.
    Now I have to have BOTH services. This is the same friggen problem we have with cable.

    Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?
