The pilots will be free, but any show selected to run for a full season will be available only through the Prime streaming service.
Amazon Prime costs $79 per year and gives buyers free 2-day shipping on all orders, free access to Kindle titles, unlimited access to the streaming movie/TV catalog and cheap overnight shipping options.
Roy Price, director of Amazon Studios, says "The production quality had to be really high; we have top people and terrific casts." The pilots are said to have cost the company over $10 million to produce.
Besides the comedies, Amazon is also expanding into original kid's shows.
