LOVEFiLM Instant lands heroic cartoons

Amazon's streaming service to get a boost from Batman, Superman and the Thundercats

Amazon-owned LOVEFiLM today announced a new content deal with Warner Bros. International Television Distribution that will bring an extensive library of animated content to the LOVEFiLM Instant streaming service.

The deal includes more than 15 years worth of animated Batman adventures spanning the fan-favourite Batman: The Animated Series right up to the recent Batman: The Brave and the Bold. And he's not the only superhero joining the service, as fans can also catch up with the Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League 'toons, with Young Justice scheduled to join them in the near future. Another highlight for kids of all ages is the inclusion of both the original Thundercats cartoon from the 1980s and the 2011 anime-styled reimagining of the series.

'We are pleased to have found a new home for some of our most popular animated series on LOVEFiLM Instant as a result of this new deal' stated Jeffrey R. Schlesinger, President, Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution. 'We are certain that subscribers, both kids as well as animation enthusiasts of all ages, will love having on demand access to these terrific series'.

Amazon's LOVEFiLM Instant streaming service is available on over 280 internet-connected devices, including PC and Mac, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and Wii U, iPad, Kindle Fire and Fire HD, and a wide range of Smart TVs and Blu-ray players.
