Online shopping giant Amazon has struck a multi-year licensing agreement in the US with Epix.

The deal will add over 25,000 movies and TV episodes to Prime Instant Video on the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet, iPad, as well as consoles like PS3 and Xbox 360, and connected TVs and Blu-ray players.

Movies include The Avengers, Iron Man 2, The Hunger Games, Transformers Dark of the Moon, Paranormal Activity 2, Justin Bieber Never Say Never and many more.

“We are investing hundreds of millions of dollars to expand the Prime Instant Video library for our customers,” said Bill Carr, VP of Video and Music at Amazon.

“We have now more than doubled this selection of movies and TV episodes to over 25,000 titles in just under a year. We are thrilled to be able to offer our customers such popular Epix titles, many of which were just recently in theaters.”

President and CEO of Epix, Mark Greenberg, added: “We are excited to be working with Amazon and to bring our compelling content to Amazon Prime and Kindle Fire customers.

“This partnership is yet another great example of Epix’s ability to broaden our reach through a digital platform, underscoring the incredible value of the Epix content offering.”
