Amazon continues to beef up its Prime Instant Video offers, today adding more than 2,000 titlrs thanks to a new deal with Viacom.

The new deal with Viacom brings in TV shows from Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, Spike, CMT, and TV Land, among others. That means that Amazon Prime subscribers will be able to watch full seasons of shows like Avatar: The last Airbender, Chapelle’s Show, Jersey Shore, The Real World, Yo Gabba Gabba, and The Sarah Silverman Project. As with all Amazon Prime Instant Videos, these shows will be available on a variety of devices, from your PC or Mac to the Kindle Fire and Roku boxes.

The new deal with Amazon brings the Prime Instant Video selection to more than 15,000 titles. That’s a pretty large selection for a service that comes as a side effect of getting free two-day shipping on almost everything Amazon sells. Of course, there’s also the added bonus of being able to just buy titles that aren’t available for free through the service. It almost makes it seem like a better deal than Netflix, and it might be if Amazon has all the titles that you want.
