Amazon.com says it is launching an on-demand TV service that lets customers view episodes and score bonus cast interviews for about 500 TV shows. The new site is also offering free episodes of shows prior to their air-date, so Amazon users can be the first to sneak the entire first episode of a show.
TV fans will soon be able to come to the Amazon TV show stores to find TV schedules that will inform them when to tune in, customer discussion boards that will allow them to debate the latest storylines, and more. The stores will also sell DVD set boxes of the seriesm which include Battlestar Gallactica, Stargate, Family Guy, Supernatural and many more. The VOD and instant streaming functionalities are only available to US customers.
