I'm an Amazon Prime subscriber, but I don't watch any of the company's shows. Heck, I forget the option exists. No matter, Amazon already has my money. The online retailer/TV production company is after other folks, and so it's dropping the price of Amazon Prime to $73 this weekend (from $99). If, like me, that number seems odd to you, then you're probably equally unaware that the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards aired this week, and that Amazon's Mozart In The Jungle won an award for Best Musical or Comedy Series (with its lead actor Gael García Bernal earning Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Series).

Psst, Amazon, yeah, I told everyone about your show. Mmhmm. Yeah, I think they heard me. Mmhmm, eh, the people who cared already knew. Oh, right, I forgot that part. Hold on a second.

Whether you're an Amazon Prime subscriber or not, from Friday 15th at 9PM PT until 11:59PM local time January 17th, you can watch the first and second seasons of Amazon's show for free using the Amazon Video app or your desktop browser.

Okay, I told them. Mmhmm, yup. Take care, Amazon.

Alright, I'm back. Thanks for being patient. Amazon loves to promote its shows. I'm ambivalent toward them, but that free and speedy shipping is a great way to get Android gadgets. If you want in on that action, this weekend is a decent time to save money signing up for a year of Prime.

The $73 deal is live. Go get yourself some cheap Prime.

Mozart in the Jungle took home the 2016 Golden Globe award for Best Musical or Comedy Series, while its lead star, Gael García Bernal, earned the coveted title of Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Series. This year’s win marks four total Golden Globe awards for Amazon, following last year’s double win for Transparent in the same categories, and also makes Amazon the first network in a decade to win Best Musical or Comedy Series and Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Series in back-to-back years for different shows.

“What an incredible honor to be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press two years in a row,” said Roy Price, Vice President of Amazon Studios. “We are incredibly proud of Gael, Jason, Roman, Paul and everyone involved in the making of Mozart in the Jungle – it’s gratifying and exciting to see the success of this series.”

Based on the critically acclaimed memoir Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs & Classical Music by Blair Tindall, the multi-award winning Amazon Original Series, Mozart in the Jungle draws back the curtain at the New York Symphony, where artistic dedication and creativity collide with mind games, politicking and survival instincts. The series is executive produced by Roman Coppola (Moonrise Kingdom), Jason Schwartzman (The Darjeeling Limited) and Paul Weitz (About a Boy) and stars Gael Garcia Bernal (Rosewater), Saffron Burrows (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Hannah Dunne (Frances Ha), Lola Kirke (Gone Girl), Malcolm McDowell (The Mentalist), Peter Vack (I Just Want My Pants Back) and Bernadette Peters (Smash).

In addition to SD and HD, the series is also available in 4K Ultra HD on Amazon Fire TV and compatible Samsung, LG and Sony smart TVs and in High Dynamic Range (HDR) on compatible Samsung and LG smart TVs. Prime members can also download the series for offline viewing on iOS, Android, and Fire devices at no additional cost.
