Transparent | Introduction to Amazon Original TV Series

While introducing you to The Man in the High Castle and Hand Of God, we have briefed about the idea of “Amazon Original TV Series“.

Amazon allows users to watch some of the shows which are not available in India, online through Amazon Prime Video. As of now they offer one month FREE exploration of their services and then you can pay yearly subscription fee, if you like their services. To get more details about it you can visit amazon.in or can directly explore primevideo.in.

We have explored the services for a month and then renewed the subscription for a year, as we are satisfied with the services. If you buy things online frequently and if your list of E-Commerce stores include Amazon, you can surely want to give it a shot. Especially if you love watching Movies and TV Shows of different genre.

Today we are going to talk about a TV show named Transparent which is one of the original Amazon TV Series.
