Many of novelist Stephen King’s books and short stories have found their way to the screen either through a movie or mini-series. Some, like The Shining, have become classics in the eyes of fans, while others…well… This season a King novel has returned the author to prominence on the small screen — Under the Dome has been the most watched show of the summer season.
Now Amazon and CBS announce that the streaming deal that was in place for season one has been renewed. “Prime Instant Video will remain the exclusive online subscription home for Under the Dome. Amazon Prime members will have unlimited streaming of all the series’ episodes four days after their initial broadcast on CBS and will be able to enjoy them on hundreds of compatible Amazon Instant Video devices including Kindle Fire HD, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Roku, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the Wii U gaming console” reads a joint statement issued by the two parties.
During season one, the show aired on Monday evenings and each new episode became available to Amazon Prime subscribers, free of charge, on Fridays.
Though there is a bit of lag, Amazon Prime will once again have your back when technology or other events thwart your viewing or recording efforts. There is some bad news, however — the show will not return until next summer.
