Amazon Prime Instant Video UK has sealed a deal with BBC Worldwide which will see a number of BBC productions made available to subscribers of the streaming service.

The deal between the two covers a wealth of BBC drama and comedy productions from the past twenty years including Sherlock, Doctor Who, Call the Midwife, Last Tango in Halifax, Life on Mars, The Office, Absolutely Fabulous, Outnumbered and Red Dwarf; all of which are now available to stream for Amazon UK Prime members.

This is the latest major deal that Amazon UK has inked with the BBC and their commercial arm BBC Worldwide. The two previously pacted together to revive Ripper Street for a third season after the series was initially cancelled by BBC execs. It also marks the latest content deal that BBCWW has struck with a UK based streaming service, following on from last month’s deal with Netflix UK.
