LOVEFiLM is to offer hit US TV shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and Desperate Housewives after partnering with Disney UK to sign a content deal with ABC TV.

The Amazon owned film rental service will offer subscribers on demand streaming access to ABC’s library of shows, after they air on UK pay and/or free TV.

It is the latest content deal to be signed by the firm following similar agreements with the BBC and ITV and complements the services existing strengths in film rental.

Simon Calver, CEO of Amazon's LOVEFiLM, commented: "LOVEFiLM members want top class TV shows, as well as movies, to watch instantly as part of their subscription. Today's deal with Disney brings them access to some of the best American TV content ever produced.”
