Amazon is teaming up with HBO, the first streaming arrangement agreed to by the cable network, in a deal that will make available to Amazon prime members some classic TV like "The Sopranos" and "The Wire."

Financial terms were not disclosed Wednesday.

Prior seasons of other HBO programs — like "Girls" and "Veep" — will become available about three years after airing on HBO.

The first batch of shows will be available on Prime Instant Video starting on May 21.

Early seasons of "Boardwalk Empire" and "True Blood" are also being made available.

The companies also say that HBO's streaming service Go will likely being offered on Amazon's Fire TV by year's end.
