As we previously posted that Amazon has bought the exclusive rights to stream future releases of Downton Abbey, a check of the PBS website reveals that the last episode of Season 3 has just expired on 3/03/13 at 11:59 PM ET (This was a link to Season 3 Episode 7, but is now gone – clicking “watch online” on PBS.org now shows only a single episode of “Page Eight” available.). Seasons 1 and 2 are also no longer available on the site.
Seasons 1 and 2 are available for free on Amazon for Amazon Prime members in both regular and HD, but Season 3 is $1.99 per episode for normal, and $2.99 each for HD. This means that, unless you can find reposts from people who pulled Season 3 off of PBS.org, your only option is to buy it from them, or wait until Amazon makes it free with Prime – possibly when Season 4 aires in September 2013. If you do decide to buy Season 3, be sure to buy it all at once for $14.99/$19.99, currently saving you $2.92/$6.92 off of the regular price.
