‘Under the Dome’ CBS, Amazon Deal Renewed

Summer hit will again stream online, days after it airs

CBS and Amazon hope viewers will stay under the influence of “Under the Dome” in Season 2: the companies are renewing a deal that will allow fans to keep watching episodes online, four days after they air on CBS.

The drama from Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Television, based on Stephen King‘s bestselling novel, returns next summer. Amazon Prime Instant Video will remain the exclusive online subscription home for the show.

The show, which premiered on on CBS in June, is the most-watched series of the summer and is also tops in the key 18-49 demo. The Amazon deal represents an attempt to reach viewers not watching in real time, a growing problem for primetime programmers.
