Following the same formula as with TV series Under the Dome, Amazon today announced a content licensing agreement for the new TV series Extant from CBS. The show will premiere on the CBS Television Network in June, and Amazon Prime Instant Video customers will have unlimited streaming of all episodes available four days after their initial broadcast.
The serialized drama, a co-production of CBS Television Studios and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, stars Halle Berry and is scheduled for a June release. Extant is a mystery thriller about a female astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in space, with her experiences leading to events that “ultimately will change the course of human history.”
Amazon Prime members will be able to enjoy the episodes on compatible devices including Kindle Fire HDX, Kindle Fire HD, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Roku, Xbox, PlayStation, and the Wii. The deal also ensures Extant episodes will also be available for purchase and download exclusively at Amazon Instant Video.
