In celebration of Amazon Prime Instant Video’s first anniversary, Amazon announced that Outlander – the smash-hit US show filmed in Scotland – will be available in the UK exclusively to millions of Amazon Prime Instant Video customers for unlimited streaming in March.
Outlander was acquired in a deal with Sony Pictures Television, who distributes the series worldwide. The hit drama is filmed at locations across Scotland, featuring a British and Irish cast, and is the winner of this year’s People’s Choice Awards for Favourite Cable Sci Fi/Fantasy TV Show.
“In the last year we have launched some fantastic shows for our customers, what better way to celebrate our first anniversary than by bringing the gripping first series of Outlander exclusively to our millions of UK Prime members,” said Jay Marine, Vice President of Amazon Instant Video in the EU. “Filmed in Scotland and already hugely popular stateside, we can’t wait to bring the show and its stellar cast of breakthrough British talent to the UK where we know there is a huge fan following already.”
The first eight episodes of the Outlander season one will be available on Prime Instant Video from March 26th for fans to binge watch. The remaining episodes will then launch weekly on Amazon Prime Instant Video from April 5th, each episode being released every Sunday just hours after broadcast in the US.
