Amazon Nabs ‘Sex and the City’ Streaming Rights for All 6 Seasons

Carrie, Mr. Big and the rest of the “Sex and the City” coterie have landed on Amazon Prime.

The e-commerce giant has secured streaming rights to the popular HBO original series starring Sarah Jessica Parker, which ran on the premium cabler over six seasons from 1998 to 2004.

All 94 episodes of “Sex and the City” are now available on Amazon Prime Instant Video to U.S. members of the $99-per-year Prime free-shipping program. The series also is available for streaming to HBO customers through HBO Now and HBO Go.

Amazon is picking up “Sex and the City” as an extension to its HBO pact last year, which made Prime the exclusive subscription VOD partner for older HBO originals. “Sex and the City” wasn’t available to Amazon until now because of the cabler’s exclusive TV syndication deal with NBCUniversal’s E! cable channel.

“’Sex and the City’ became one of the most popular shows on TV over its six-season run, and we are excited today to give our Prime members access to every episode to watch anytime, anywhere as part of their membership,” said Michael Paull, Amazon VP of digital video.

The show is also available for Prime members to download for offline viewing on iOS and Android devices, a feature Amazon introduced earlier this month.

Amazon also recently added full seasons of HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Entourage” to Prime Instant Video after rights for those shows freed up. All past seasons of “Game of Thrones,” HBO’s most popular current show, remain available for streaming only on HBO platforms.

Along with Parker, “Sex and the City” starred Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Chris Noth as Mr. Big. The series was created by Darren Star and based on Candace Bushnell’s book of the same name.
