Amazon.com has entered into an exclusive agreement with producers of the TV show “24” for instant online video. Amazon made the announcement yesterday saying that all eight seasons of the Kiefer Sutherland drama will be available prior to the May 5 start of the new season. See the full press release here.

The program will only be available to members of Amazon Prime, which resembles Netflix for videos that adds books and free shipping on many Amazon.com products. All are covered by the same membership fee. This is another in a continuing effort by Amazon to gain exclusive offerings compete with other online retailers and service providers.

The insider tip you need to be aware of is that you can get a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime which will give you plenty of time to see all episodes of 24 as you evaluate the total value that prime offers.

“24 has been extremely popular with Amazon customers over the years,” said Brad Beale, director of digital video content acquisition for Amazon. “Whether they are hard-core Jack Bauer fans or just discovering the series for the first time, Prime members are going to love catching up on the previous seasons of 24 as well as 24:Live Another Day.”

The Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution program gets its name from the premise that Bauer has exactly 24 hours to solve each season’s complex case. Eight seasons are available for a total of 192 episodes. Click here to see a list of all episodes.

Amazon’s Prime service is representative of the company’s innovation which brought e-readers into popular culture. Yet they did not limit Amazon Prime to the Kindle. Prime members can access content using hundreds of compatible Amazon Instant Video devices including Kindle Fire HDX, Kindle Fire HD, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Roku, Xbox, PlayStation and the Wii.

Also, as Amazon points out in their press release, Prime Instant Video is the only U.S. online subscription streaming service that enables offline viewing on a plane, on vacation, and anywhere a user may not have access to Wi-Fi.
