Amazon is streaming all of Mozart in the Jungle for free this weekend

And it's slapping a Golden Globes-themed discount on Amazon Prime for American customers

As a means of celebrating Mozart in the Jungle's surprising Golden Globes haul, Amazon is streaming the entire series (that's two seasons' worth of TV) for free this weekend. While you typically need an Amazon Prime subscription in one of the territories where Amazon Prime Video operates — that includes the US, UK, Japan, Austria, and Germany — to watch the company's series, Amazon has confirmed that Mozart in the Jungle will be available worldwide from midnight ET on Friday until 11:59PM local time on Sunday night. If you're still somehow unsure what Mozart in the Jungle is — it's a comedy set in the cutthroat world of classical music! — this is a great opportunity to find out.

Amazon occasionally puts full seasons of its shows and licensed content up for free as a limited-time promotional tactic. After Transparent won its own handful of Golden Globes in 2015, Amazon made its full first season available to everyone for a day, including non-subscribers. The success of that promotion inspired a free Friday for Orphan Black's first season later that same year. Amazon is also putting the American version of a year of Amazon Prime on sale for $73 while Mozart in the Jungle is streaming for free, a hefty discount from its usual $99. (The number comes from the 73rd annual Golden Globes.)

"What an incredible honor to be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press two years in a row," said vice president of Amazon Studios Roy Price in a statement. "It's gratifying and exciting to see the success of [Mozart in the Jungle]."
