“Mozart in the Jungle,” the below-the-radar Amazon Prime show, surprised everyone by picking up two heavyweight Golden Globes a few nights ago — one for Best Television Series, Comedy and the other being Best Actor in a Television Series-Musical or Comedy for Gael Garcia Bernal. Now you can find out why: Amazon will be streaming the entire series for free this weekend.
The nascent Amazon Studios has even gone so far as to permit the streaming of the series worldwide, outside of their usual subscription territories of the US, UK, Japan, Austria and Germany for the duration of the weekend. On top of that, the company is enacting a promotional deal which would discount a year-long US Amazon Prime subscription (which includes the streaming service) to $73 as compared to the usual $99 fee (a nod to the 73rd annual Golden Globes).
Vice President of Amazon Studios Roy Price said in a statement, “what an incredible honor [it is] to be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press two years in a row,” and that, “It’s gratifying and exciting to see the success of [‘Mozart’].”
Catch the worldwide free stream of “Mozart in the Jungle” this weekend, from Friday at midnight ET to 11:59pm on Sunday.
