Amazon Prime Instant Gets BBC's Sherlock, Red Dwarf, More

It’s been just over a month since Amazon rolled LoveFilm into it’s Amazon Prime Instant service, and today the etailer announced that it is expanding the Amazon Prime Instant library with the addition of several top BBC shows. 

Amazon and the BBC have signed a deal that will see some of the British broadcaster’s most popular shows come to Amazon’s on demand streaming service. These will include the immensely popular Sherlock and Dr Who as well as The Office, Ab Fab and Red Dwarf. 

Amazon in February announced plans to add LoveFilm’s streaming service to its Instant video service as of February 26. Though the DVD mail business remains in tact, the LoveFilm brand no longer exists as a streaming service.
