Outlander Premieres In The UK

Many lucky Outlander fans are at the dual London/Glasgow Amazon Prime UK premier.

UK fans have been impatiently waiting (and rightly so) for the popular Diana Gabaldon book series turned tv series filmed on location throughout Scotland with a soundstage in Cumbernauld. 

Finally fans have more than “home town” pride to enjoy.

For those with high soeed internet, episodes 1-8 are available for streaming on Amazon Prime UK with the second half of season available just after the US premier April 4th. 

Several UK news outlets are reporting  tonight on the two city event.  Links to articles below.

I, for one, cannot wait to read Outlander UK fan feedback.

Amazon Picks Up UK Outlander Rights or Did They?

No word on an air date yet but the rights to Outlander have been picked up by Amazon after intensive negotiations with Sony, according to Digital Spy, TV Wise, .

Great news for UK viewers who have been thus far left out of viewing the Scotland based show adapted from the Diana Gabaldon book series, starring Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan.

With the production getting ready to film Season 2, the UK viewers have much to catch up on.

Addendum:
According to the BBC Amazon says there is no announcement on Outlander UK rights and no comment.

This must be an incredibly frustrating situation for UK fans. I do cautiously hope that AP is simply not prepared yo make an official statement yet.
