A little more than a year after Amazon announced a deal with MGM to bring classic movies and TV shows to Prime Instant Video, it has now revealed it has expanded this content licensing agreement.

This means that hit drama Vikings will be made available through Amazon’s US-only video streaming service, though it actually first arrived as a streaming exclusive on Amazon-owned LoveFilm in Europe.

In addition to Vikings, this deal will also see titles such as Fargo, Platoon, Annie Hall, Hotel Rwanda and more arrive on Prime Instant Video.
