Amazon and PBS have expanded their streaming partnership.

The companies announced on Wednesday that Amazon's Prime Instant Video service will now included "hundreds of additional episodes" of "Nova," "Masterpiece," and several other PBS shows. More PBS Kids shows, including "Arthur" and "Caillou," will also be available.

The wildly popular "Downton Abbey" has also been worked into the deal, with Amazon becoming the "exclusive video subscription home" to the third season of the acclaimed series. Earlier this year, Amazon announced that it will exclusively carry all "Downton Abbey" seasons starting later this year.
