Hit TV Show "The Americans" Makes Exclusive Streaming Debut on Prime Instant Video, Just in Time for Season Two Premiere on FX

Prime members have instant access to catch up on all past episodes of the FX original drama, starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, before the series returns on February 26th

SEATTLE -- Feb. 6, 2014 -- (NASDAQ:AMZN) - Amazon.com, Inc. today announced a content licensing agreement with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution that will make Prime Instant Video the exclusive online-only subscription home for streaming all past episodes of popular period drama The Americans. Prime members can experience all the tension and intrigue of the first season anytime, from hundreds of connected devices, just in time for the February 26th return of the series on FX.

The critically acclaimed spy thriller made it onto 36 Top Ten lists published at the end of 2013, ranking sixth on the overall scorecard behind only five other hit shows. The AFI named it one of the year's most outstanding shows and it picked up the prestigious Television Critics Association Award for the most outstanding new program of the year as well. Produced by Fox Television Studios and FX Productions, the series stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as married KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. in the early 1980s.

"The Americans is simply an exceptional television drama that delivers riveting storylines and outstanding performances," said Brad Beale, Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition for Amazon. "We are excited to bring this great series to Prime Instant Video. The Americans is a welcome addition to our growing lineup of exclusive content and we know that Prime members will love catching up on season one in advance of the new season."

"We're incredibly proud of The Americans, and are excited to offer old and new fans of the show an innovative, yet simple way to access season one in its entirety before the premiere of season two on FX," said Gina Brogi, Executive Vice President Worldwide Pay TV and SVOD, Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution.

As part of the deal, Prime customers will also have access to additional programming, including popular comedies How I Met Your Mother, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, Louie and Archer. Beginning next month, all five shows will be available for streaming via Prime Instant Video.

Created and executive produced by Joe Weisberg (Falling Skies), a former CIA agent who went on to become an accomplished author, The Americans is produced by Fox Television Studios and FX Productions. Joel Fields and Graham Yost are also executive producers, along with Amblin Television heads Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank.
