One of the most popular and well-reviewed shows of the past year is coming to Amazon, exclusively.
Amazon Prime members will soon be able to stream USA’s hit Mr. Robot, as the company has just announced a multi-regional deal with NBCUniversal.
“Mr. Robot is one the most compelling new dramas on television,” said Brad Beale, Amazon Vice President of Digital Video Content Acquisition. “Rami Malek delivers a mesmerizing performance and leads a great cast with an intriguing story full of dark twists. Prime members are going to love binging on this awesome show.”
The deal will give viewers in the US, UK, Germany, Austria, and Japan the chance to watch all ten episodes of the series’ first season.
But not all countries will get Mr. Robot at the same time. Folks in the UK get it soon – October 16th. On November 20th, it lands in Germany and Austria.
But us in the State have to wait until spring 2016.
“Mr. Robot is a tremendous success and Amazon Prime has provided a great opportunity to make the show even more accessible to audiences,” said Frances Manfredi, President, NBCUniversal Television and New Media Distribution. “We are pleased that Amazon recognizes the high quality of NBCUniversal’s content and is partnering with us in a network friendly way that allows viewers to watch the show when and where they want it.”
The show currently holds a 98% ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, and has been one of the most-buzzed about new series since its debut in June.
Mr. Robot will be one of the shows for which Amazon allows offline playback.
Oh, and by the way, Amazon Prime is only $67 today (regularly $99).
