It would appear that Amazon is looking to wrangle in some new Prime customers with a new promotion that is set to take place all day Friday, April 17th. Under normal circumstances you ned to have a Prime account to watch Prime Instant Videos or purchase them separately. However, Amazon is attempting to lure you in to the service with all of season one of Orphan Black, which is 10 episodes, of the show without Prime. It is a very limited offer, but a person could feasibly get through the whole season in one day.
“Orphan Black has been extremely popular with Prime members since the series became available exclusively in Prime Instant Video–that’s why we’re excited to make season one available to all customers for free, for a day,” said Michael Paull, Vice President of Digital Video at Amazon. “We saw an incredible response when we made our Golden Globe-winning original series Transparent available to everyone, so we’re giving customers an opportunity to try out another great series that Prime members already love.”
The show is a pretty great story of a street smart girl named Sarah who witnessed a suicide of a girl that looked just like her. Thinking the best course of action was to steal her identity and drain her bank account, she quickly found outÂ she had inserted herself into a deadly conspiracy. Now she has to stay alive, keep others alive and battle a mega corporation. It really is a pretty good show.
