September 26 2011 signs deal with Fox to add new instant streaming shows. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is among those to be available soon.

Other Whedonverse Fox properties might be included, but I didn't see a complete list.

ETA: Apparently the letter does not come up for everyone. Here's the full text,

"Dear Customer,

I have big news for Amazon Prime members - we've just signed a deal with FOX to add a broad selection of movies and TV shows to our unlimited instant streaming service later this fall. The new additions from the FOX library include 24, Arrested Development, The X-Files, Ally McBeal, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and - available on digital video for the first time - The Wonder Years. We now have deals with CBS, NBCUniversal, Sony, and Warner Bros, and adding FOX will bring the total to more than 11,000 movies and TV shows available for unlimited instant streaming.

Since launching earlier this year, we have now doubled the number of titles available in Prime instant videos, and there's still more to come. Prime membership remains $79 a year, and of course features our unlimited free two-day shipping on millions of products. Prime is one of the best values anywhere.

Prime instant videos can be played on more than 300 HDTVs, Blu-ray players, and set-top boxes.

Millions have already joined Amazon Prime...

With more instant videos coming soon:

If you're a Prime member, start watching now. If not, start your one-month free trial today.

Thanks for being a customer,

Jeff Bezos
Founder & CEO

P.S. You can also watch movies and TV shows instantly at our Amazon Instant Video Store, where we offer more than 100,000 movies and TV shows for rent or purchase, no Prime membership required."

Yay. I recently limited my Netflix account to DVD Only (since their streaming selection is so limited) but still wanted some streaming option. As an Amazon Prime member I'm glad to hear this. Now I hope Amazon improves its online user interface; that's one area where Netflix is better (queue management, etc.)
I'm getting close to signing up for Amazon Prime.
A few years ago (when the economy was better) it would have been a no-brainer, but I'm not purchasing as many items from them as I used to.

Here's the link to the story c/o THR.
