Amazon Prime brings a new series ‘Mr. Robot’

MUMBAI: ‘Mr. Robot’, a new series, will be available for Amazon Prime members in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Japan to stream and download at no additional charge to their membership.

Starting this spring, Prime Video in the US will be the exclusive subscription streaming home for ‘Mr. Robot’. Prime members can watch all ten episodes of the dramatic thriller series that follows a young programmer who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and as a vigilante hacker by night.

All ten episodes of season one of the series will exclusively premiere on Prime Video in the UK, Germany, Austria and Japan. Prime members can watch via the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices and mobile devices, or online at www.amazon.com/PrimeVideo—the series will also be available for Prime members to download on iOS, Android and Fire devices for offline viewing.

The first episode of ‘Mr. Robot’ premiered in the US at the South by Southwest Film Festival where it won the Audience Award for Episodic Television, and aired this summer on the USA Network.

Amazon VP digital video content acquisition Brad Beale said, “ ‘Mr. Robot’ is one the most compelling new dramas on television. Rami Malek delivers a mesmerising performance and leads a great cast with an intriguing story full of dark twists. Prime members are going to love binging on this awesome show.”

NBCUniversal Television and New Media Distribution president Frances Manfredi said, “ ‘Mr. Robot’ is a tremendous success and Amazon Prime has provided a great opportunity to make the show even more accessible to audiences. We are pleased that Amazon recognizes the high quality of NBCUniversal’s content and is partnering with us in a network friendly way that allows viewers to watch the show when and where they want it.”

‘Mr. Robot’ stars Rami Malek as Elliot, a young computer programmer who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and as a vigilante hacker by night. Elliot finds himself at a crossroads when the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group played by Christian Slater recruits him to destroy the firm he is paid to protect. Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world.
