Amazon Prime partners with Viacom to offer Comedy Central, MTV, Spike and more

 
Amazon Prime users have received a few more networks to browse in the coming weeks. Thanks to a partnership between Amazon and Viacom.
 
Viacom is one of the largest media networks existing today offering MTV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, TV Land, Spike, VH1, BET and CMT shows to Amazon customers. Although a few of the larger shows are offered on Hulu and other services, it will be interesting to see just how extensive Viacom’s offerings will be on Amazon.
 
This of course comes at a time when Amazon, Netflix and Hulu are bound together in a content war of their own. Each of the services has been busy securing original content for its suppliers in an effort to become king.
 
Amazon does technically have a legup on the competition in offerings, not subscribers. For only $79 a year customers enjoy many benefits from Amazon Prime including free two-day shipping, over 15,000 movies and TV shows and free cloud-storage for any digital media bought with the service. The Amazon Instant app is already featured on consoles, tablets, phones and computers
