Lands exclusive new home for the years to come

Doctor Who will become available on Amazon Prime Video, its new streaming home, starting March 27, BBC America announced.

In a press release, the company confirmed that Amazon holds the exclusive streaming rights for Doctor Who, a contract that will last for a "multi-year" period. The exclusivity period grants Amazon Prime subscribers access to the first eight seasons of the show later this month, with the most recent ninth season and holiday special joining this fall.

The digital retailer first teased that the popular sci-fi series would be joining its video service last month. The news came following the quiet removal of Doctor Who from Netflix, where it was previously available, earlier this year.

Amazon Prime memberships cost $99 a year and grant access to the company's streaming library, among other features. Alongside Doctor Who, BBC America hit Orphan Black is exclusively available to stream on that service.
