January 22, 2015

People curious about that online series about the transgender dad that won a couple of Golden Globes earlier this month will have a chance to see it without cracking open their wallets.

Citing a desire to celebrate the show’s Globes wins for best musical or comedy series and best actor (Jeffrey Tambor), Amazon is making all 10 episodes of the first season of Transparent – typically available exclusively to Amazon Prime members – available for free on Saturday. On that day, it’s also offering a year’s subscription to Amazon Prime for just $72, instead of the regular price of $99.

Viewers can watch Transparent using the Amazon Instant Video app for TVs, connected devices and mobile devices, or online at Amazon.com/Transparent.

Amazon has greenlit a second season of Transparent, set to air later this year.

    Great programming on Prime http://www.vunify.com/amazon-prime. Hopefully people will watch and they will support better programming. I am encouraged by their pilot shows. I read somewhere that the majority of prime subscribers have not seen Prime. Is that because they get prime for shipping? Do they know they have prime?
