The series recently took home the "Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical" award at the Golden Globes, marking the first time an online streaming service took him a Golden Globe. Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor also took home the "Best Actor in a TV Comedy" award.
In celebration of these accolades, Amazon has decided to open up Transparent to the greater public. This Saturday --from 12:01am ET to 11:59 P.M. ET-- anyone can watch all of the show's ten half-hour episodes on Amazon Instant Video, whether or not they are Prime customers.
Transparent explores family, identity, sex, and love through the story of Maura (played by Tambor), who spent much of her life as Mort. A second season of the show is set to air later this year.
Additionally, Amazon is reducing the price of Amazon Prime to $72 for a one-year subscription that same day, in honor of this year having been the 72nd Annual Golden Globes Awards. Consumers can sign up for this special offer at Amazon.com/TransparentPrime. Amazon Prime normally costs $99 per year.
"We're incredibly proud of everyone involved in the making of Transparent-the team took a risk and it paid off," Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said in the press release. "Big kudos and congrats to Jill, Jeffrey, and all the cast and crew."
