Amazon.com is about to be inducted into the Clone Club. Well...sort of.
BBC America announced earlier today that it has recently secured a deal with the online corporation, allowing Amazon to stream the first season (as well as future seasons) of 'Orphan Black' exclusively on Prime Instant Video — all at no additional cost to its subscribers. Let the binge-watching parties begin!
“'Orphan Black' is exactly the type of smart, suspenseful TV show that our customers love to binge on,” Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition for Amazon, Brad Beale, said in a statement. “It’s easy to see why Tatiana Maslany was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in 'Orphan Black.' We’re excited to offer the first and future seasons exclusively to Prime members at no additional cost, continuing our tradition of offering a wide variety of great content we know our customers will enjoy.”
But fans aren't the only ones benefiting from this arrangement. With more than a month to go until the Season 2 premiere, 'Black' now has the opportunity to open itself up to a wider fanbase and show any non-viewers (do those even exist?!?!) what all the fuss is about.
The sci-fi series joins a growing list of shows currently available on an Amazon-only basis, including popular hits such as 'Downton Abbey,' 'The Americans,' 'Veronica Mars,' 'Justified,' 'Suits,' 'Under the Dome,' and more.
So if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber and have yet to familiarize yourself with the wonder that is 'Orphan Black,' then cancel any/all plans you might've had in the near future because your weekend just got booked.
After all, this show's episodes are like M&M's...you'll never be able to consume just one.
