Apr 30, 2020 For a prime example of how Upload works in relation to Parks and Recreation, the hyper-corporate and consumer-friendly Lakeview where Nathan lives (so to speak) is programmed to be as chipper. I only got into Parks and Recreation over the summer, but I devoured three seasons worth of episodes on 10 days. That's how awesome this show is. Of course when I saw this preview up on Amazon for download, I clicked and watched. My excitement level went from 'So excited!'
Subscribers to Amazon's $79-per-year Prime service now have free, online streaming access to past seasons of Parks and Recreation, Battlestar Galactica, Parenthood, Friday Night Lights and Heroes, thanks to an expanded licensing agreement with NBCUniversal.
The agreement brings Amazon's Prime Instant Video catalog to 22,000, up from 18,000 in June.
Amazon's last streaming deal was signed with ESPN earlier this week. The company also has licensing deals with Discovery, Fox, CBS, NBC, MGM, Sony Viacom and Warner Bros., among others.
Videos can be watched on Kindle Fire, Roku, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and, as of the first of this month, iPad devices. The $79-per-year subscription also gives customers free two-day shipping on Amazon.com and access to a library of Kindle e-books, including the entire Harry Potter series, at no additional charge.
Content licensing isn't the only thing Amazon is concentrating its efforts upon. Earlier this week, the online retailer sent out a press invite for an event in Santa Monica, Calif., on Sept. 6. Some suspect Amazon is planning to unveil its next-generation Kindle Fire and E-Ink e-readers, but the fact that the event is being held in L.A. suggests the company may have more of an entertainment-related announcement up its sleeve.
