Tune in! HD Columbo now streaming on Amazon Prime

Columbo Fade in to Murder
Columbo in HD looks even better than this! Hard to believe, but true…

Keen viewers looking to enjoy Columbo in glorious high definition can yell ‘HUZZAH’ in glee after Amazon Prime added 9 episodes to its streaming service.

Pilot episodes Prescription: Murder and Ransom for a Dead Man are available to stream, as well as all 7 episodes from Season 1, including blockbusters Murder by the Book, Death Lends a Hand and Suitable for Framing. Check out your options here.

The news is a welcome boost to Columbo lovers after the show was taken down by Netflix in 2016, much to the consternation of firm fans – some of whom even started (unsuccessful) petitions to get the streaming giant to make it available once again.

When will the back catalog of Dexter Paris’s TV cookery show become available?

Fans without their own DVD sets have limited options to stream the world’s greatest detective show. The official Columbo YouTube channel has a rotating selection of 6-7 episodes available in HD, although these are blocked in numerous countries, including the UK, Canada and France.

And while I can’t vouch for precisely where you’ll be able to enjoy Columbo on Amazon Prime (it’s not available in Australia where I am), this is at least a positive step – and one which will presumably see additional series added on an on-going basis. No one can complain about that, right?

Do let me know if Columbo is available to stream on Amazon where you are! And any commentary around the sound and image quality will be most welcome to fans around the world!
