Amazon.com expanded its content-licensing agreement with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios to make the e-retailer’s Prime Instant Video the exclusive subscription video service for all past seasons of MTV series “Teen Wolf.”
“Teen Wolf,” currently in its third season on MTV, is available on Amazon Prime Instant Video starting Tuesday. In addition, the pact includes several MGM films. “The Usual Suspects,” “Raging Bull” and “Thelma and Louise” are now available to members of the Amazon Prime free-shipping and subscription VOD service. Later in 2014, Amazon will obtain rights to “The Terminator,” “The Silence of the Lambs,” “Moonstruck” and “A Fish Called Wanda.”
MGM and Amazon last October expanded their content-licensing agreement for Prime Instant Video, which included the History historical drama “Vikings.”
The “Teen Wolf” series is loosely based on the 1995 film of the same name starring Michael J. Fox. Series stars Tyler Posey as a high-school student hiding his werewolf identity and Crystal Reed as his love interest who (ironically!) comes from a family of werewolf hunters.
“‘Teen Wolf’ is a dark, edgy show that really resonates with Amazon customers,” Brad Beale, Amazon’s director of digital video content acquisition, said in a statement. “We’re also excited to add more MGM classic films such as ‘Raging Bull’ and ‘Thelma and Louise’ to Prime Instant Video. We know our customers love these great films.”
