Amazon Gets Streaming Rights to CBS's ‘Salvation’

CBS has sold the subscription streaming video rights to its upcoming summer series Salvation to Amazon’s Prime Video service.

Salvation premieres on CBS July 12. Amazon Prime members will be able to steam and download episodes of the show beginning four days after their broadcast debut.

CBS has made similar deals with Amazon for past summer series, including Under the Dome and Extant.

“The CBS/Amazon relationship for original summer programming has been very successful, and we’re excited to build on it with Salvation,” said Scott Koondel, chief corporate licensing officer, CBS Corp. “It continues to be a great business model for year-round programming on the network, as well as exclusive content for Amazon Video subscribers.”

The series is a thriller about dealing with an asteroid six months away from colliding with the Earth.
