"Battlestar Galactica" fans, rejoice.

Amazon said today that it has struck an expanded content licensing deal with NBCUniversal and New Media Distribution, increasing its offerings by hundreds of TV episodes to Prime Instant Video users.

Subscribers can now watch back episodes of "Parks and Recreation," "Parenthood," "Friday Night Lights," "Heroes" -- and of course, "Battlestar Galactica" -- through the service.

Amazon's Brad Beale said the retail giant will "continue to invest heavily in our content selection for Prime members."

Prime Instant Video has more than 22,000 movies and TV episodes to stream on Amazon's Kindle Fire and other devices, from the iPad to game consoles such as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
