Walt Disney Co. has gotten on the Amazon gravy train.
Looking to acquire content for its video streaming service Prime Instant, Amazon has struck a deal with Disney's ABC broadcast network as well as its cable channels including Disney Channel, ABC Family and some older shows made by ABC Studios including "Felicity."
The short-term agreement is much smaller than Disney's current arrangement with Netflix, but the structure is similar. Like Netflix, Amazon will not get access to current shows in season. In other words, last week's "Grey's Anatomy" won't show up on Prime Instant until a month after the current television season ends.
