CBS show Extant set to land on Amazon Prime with exclusive deal
This past Wednesday CBS science fiction series Extant debuted, coming amid much hype from anxious viewers. The TV network has also reached an exclusive agreement with Amazon Prime, which already has a similar deal with shows such as Stephen King's Under the Dome.
Episode one will be debuting this weekend, becoming officially available to viewers on July 13th. For those who have not heard of the new show, Amazon describes "Extant is a thrilling sci-fi drama starring Oscar-winner Halle Berry as an astronaut, Molly Woods, who returns home from a year in space and tries to reconnect with her husband and son. The events following Woods’ return home will ultimately change the course of human history with dramatic consequences for the entire planet".
As with the other shows, customers will need to wait several days from television airing. "Judging from the customer response we got to Under the Dome last summer, we know Prime members are going to enjoy having access to Extant just four days after it airs on CBS”, says Brad Beale, Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition for Amazon.
The show will become available on Prime each week, but episodes will hit the service after airing on CBS. Extant is already available to Prime subscribers in the UK, where it debuted on Amazon Prime the next day.
