What do you think about the following idea:
The World War II was ended quite differently. It was won by the Axis Powers! (You know this is a famous concept and there is an article on this hypothetical concept on Wikipedia – you can read it at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypothetical_Axis_victory_in_World_War_II). And now the United states is partitioned into 3 partsL
- Japanese Pacific States
- Nazi puppet state
- Neutral Zone
Seems interesting right? There are many people who often rekon about what if their lives have been moved ahead differently; and some extends the concept to historical events. Even in schools and colleges we used to write on hypothecial stuffs. “What if I would be the Prime Minister of India?”, we used to write esseys like that in primary school also. The idea behind was to let your imagination go ahead and explored the land of ideology. It also allow you to explore in on the base of morals and ethics.
American writer Philip K. Dick explored the alternate history concept and wrote a book named The Man in the High Castle where the World War II ended as mentioned above!
When Amazon have decided to having it’s own production (like NetFlix) of TV Series, they have tried exploring this novel in a TV Series of the same name – The Man in the High Castle.
This Amazon’s original (and exclusively available on Amazon only) TV Serial’s pilot episode was aired on January 15, 2015. It was most-watched since the original series development program began! It is later decided (February 18, 2015) to be a series of 10 episodes total. The rest of the nine episode was released on November 20, 2015.
The series was available on Amazon’s Prime Video website and was initially exclusive to USA. Recently Amazon India have decided to make it available in India in order to explore the Indian market. It is worth to note that NetFlix already have launched it’s India segment a while ago, and Amazon definitely wants to give it a tough competition.
As of now Amazon Prime Video is available for free for one month and then INR 499 for a year. The yearly subscription is less than what NetFlix charges for a month in it’s cheapest plan in India.
