Disney-ABC pacts with Amazon

Web giant nabs digital rights to keep competish at bay

Immediately on the heels of Disney-ABC Television’s deal with Netflix (announced last night), the group has pacted with Amazon Digital Video for similar rights.

Shows include ABC Family’s ”Greek” and ”The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” the Disney Channel’s ”Phineas and Ferb,” and Marvel cartoons ”Spider-Man” and ”X-Men: Evolution.”

Amazon also nabs some of ABC Studios’ offerings in the deal, including ”Lost,” ”Grey’s Anatomy” and ”Felicity.”

It’s the season for digital deal-making, apparently. Hulu pacted with the CW on Friday, just two weeks after the net made a similar agreement with Netflix. With the precipitous decline in DVD sales in the last few years, content producers are eager to find new back-end distribution outlets for their product, and Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon are ready to duke it out for digital supremacy.
