Amazon Says It Won’t Release All Alpha House Episode at Once

Alpha House

One of the great things about Netflix’s original content library is that all episodes of a show are made available at once, allowing subscribers to watch at their own pace. But the same thing can’t be said for Amazon’s exclusive show, Alpha House, starring John Goodman as a Republican senator. Instead, the online giant might decide to follow the traditional TV model by releasing shows on a weekly basis.

According to The Wrap, customers won’t be able to binge on the season once its released later this year, with executive producer Jonathan Alter revealing it’ll adopt a model different from Netflix’s. The competing service lead by Reed Hastings has successfully launched the entirety of shows—House of Cards and season 4 of Arrested Development being the most recent—which customers seem to prefer over having to wait. Amazon doesn’t explicitly state how the company will put Alpha House out, but it sure won’t be in one fell swoop.

Alpha House was one of five shows chosen by viewers to make into a full fledged season following Amazon’s trial period of numerous pilots earlier this year. To see the show when it debuts in November, viewers will need to be an Amazon Prime member.
