Free Amazon Shows for All

Amazon Prime Video is opening the video streaming floodgates on three of its most popular original series – for one week.

Now through December 31, non-Prime customers will be able to binge, for free, on the first seasons of Bosch, The Man in the High Castle and Mozart in the Jungle.

The Man in the High Castle, based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning 1962 book, presents an alternate historical universe in which the Allies have lost World War II and the United States is occupied by Germany and Japan. The story is driven by an uneasy alliance between the Axis powers and an underground resistance movement in possession of a mysterious movie that could upend the occupiers’ hold on power. The series stars Alexa Davalos, Luke Kleintank, Rupert Evans, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa and Rufus Sewell. To learn more, visit www.amazon.com/mithc.

Bosch, which will start its third season in 2017, is based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling novels, with Titus Welliver as the title character, Detective Harry Bosch. In season one, Bosch follows the trail of a 13-year-old boy’s murderer while standing accused in federal court of shooting “a suspected killer in cold blood.” The series was developed by Eric Overmyer, one of the creative forces behind The Wire,  Homicide: Life on the Streets and Boardwalk Empire.

Mozart in the Jungle, which broke new ground for streaming originals with several Golden Globe Awards, is based on Blair Tindall’s memoir, Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs & Classical Music. The series follows the “mind games, politicking and survival instincts” of members of the fictitious New York Symphony, led by its charismatic and quirky conductor, Gael Garcia Bernal, who won the Globe for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Series, is joined by Malcolm McDowell, Bernadette Peters, Lola Kirke, Saffron Burrows, Hannah Dunne and Jason Schwartzman.
