Amazon Strikes Scripps Deal: Stream "Iron Chef America" Now

Fans of the Food Network, Cooking Channel, and Travel Channel can now stream their favorite TV shows on Amazon's Prime Instant Video.

The e-commerce giant has struck a deal with Scripps Networks Interactive to make Prime Instant Video the exclusive, online, subscription home for the past seasons of hit TV shows from Scripps' family of TV channels. This is the first kind of deal Scripps Networks Interactive has signed. However, this isn't the first time Amazon and Scripps Networks have partnered -- Scripps Networks already sells branded books, cookware, furniture, accessories and more on Amazon.com.

In addition to the list above, the deal includes shows from HGTV and DIY Network. A few series that are available for viewing right now are Rachael Ray's Week in a Day; Anthony Bourdain: No ReservationsDiners, Drive-Ins and Dives; Iron Chef America; Man v. Food; Chopped; Ghost Adventures; and Yard Crashers. Many of these shows will also be available for purchase and download from Amazon Instant Video.


This news comes on the heels of several recent, exclusive content deals. Last week, CBS agreed that Prime Instant Video will be the exclusive subscription home for the summer series Under the Dome. Moreover, Prime Instant Video will soon become the exclusive online subscription home for PBS hit Downton Abbey. Currently, Prime members can access more than 38,000 movies and TV episodes on Amazon's streaming service.

I think Amazon Instant Video is a great feature they offer their Prime customers because they know that people want TV away from home and not just on their TV. I’m one of those people, but I don’t want just reruns. I like variety when I watch TV, but I would rather get everything I want that is current on TV too, when I’m on the go. I record my favorite shows that I talk about with my friends at my DISH office with my DISH Hopper DVR, and then use the DISH Anywhere app on my phone or tablet to watch them wherever I go. I get more out of my entertainment that way when I’m too busy to watch TV at home any more too.
