Like many online streaming services Amazon has invested heavily in creating original content, including but not limited to TV shows and movies. Its original creations have seen considerable success even though there’s really no shortage of series and seasons and new pilots, one such example is Mozart in the Jungle, which recently won several awards at the Golden Globes. To celebrate that spectacular achievement Amazon has decided to stream this award-winning show for free this weekend.
Amazon’s video streaming service is part and parcel of Amazon Prime, the $99 per year membership, however, the video service is only supported in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, Austria and Germany.
The company wants everybody to see the two seasons of Mozart in the Jungle for free and that’s why it’s going to stream the show worldwide starting midnight ET tomorrow until 11:59 local time on Sunday. You don’t need to be in a supported territory to binge through two seasons of Mozart in the Jungle this weekend.
This isn’t the first time that Amazon has done something like this. When another one of its original shows, Transparent, won several Golden Globes last year it was also made available for free streaming to everybody even if they weren’t Amazon Prime members.
Obviously, the idea here is to get as many people as possible to see an award-winning show, and perhaps they will be enticed enough to spend money on an Amazon Prime subscription, which is the ultimate goal after all.
