Amazon Lovefilm struck a deal with CBS Studios International Monday, which will allow customers in the U.K. and Germany access to some of the U.S.'s best shows, like "Dexter," "Nurse Jackie," and "The Good Wife."
Lovefilm, which is essentially Europe's version of Netflix, will now have rights to stream CBS-owned shows like "Blue Bloods" and the original "Star Trek" series, as well as some Showtime favorites (Showtime is owned by CBS), led by the serial killer drama "Dexter," CNET reported.
