Amazon Will Add a Huge Collection of Classic TV to Prime Video and IMDb TV

Amazon has made a deal with Sony Pictures Television that will bring content from producer Norman Lear to Prime Video and the company’s free streaming service IMDb TV

Some of the iconic titles from Lear include All in the Family, Good Times, Maude, One Day at a Time, 227, Diff’rent Strokes, The Jeffersons, Sanford and Sanford & Son.

“Norman Lear is a national treasure and his impact on television and popular culture is immeasurable,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “We are so honored to bring his classic television series to Prime Video and IMDb TV so new audiences and a new generation can laugh, enjoy and be inspired, like so many of us have been throughout the years.”

The titles will be divided between Prime Video and IMDb TV, with no overlap. The launch of the content on the services will begin July 15 when 227 and Diff’rent Strokes will begin streaming on Prime Video. The Jeffersons, Sanford & Son, and Sanford will make their way to Prime Video later this year. All in the Family, Good Times, Maude, and One Day at a Time will be available on IMDb TV beginning July 15.

“In 2018, our Act III Productions sat with the team at Sony Pictures Television and formed a partnership to not only produce new content, but to bring a new awareness to my former Embassy library,” Lear said. “That Sony found a home for that library with Prime Video/IMDb TV where new generations could find it, is the best present a man entering his 100th year can have.” Lear turns 99 on July 27. 

Most of the series will be available to stream in their entirety.
