..Outlanders comes to amazon prime.
The Starz series Outlander will finally cross the Atlantic to a UK home on Amazon Prime.

We said it would happen and that it was only a matter or time, and it seems that the Streaming services have negotiated a deal with Sony Pictures to air the first run in the UK.

The deal comes amid Amazons push to increase its investment in UK original programs, and with the company having very deep pockets we are sure this wont be the last acquisition.

The purchase will join shows like Extant, Rogue, Constantine, Vikings and fellow Starz drama Black Sails, which all have first runs on Amazon Prime.  Extant was also recently picked up by the scifi channel in a deal which sees the channel airing the series after Amazon.

The series, which has already been renewed for a second season, is based on the novel series by Diana Gabaldon which follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
