The Great is coming to Amazon Prime Video Canada (and other international locations) on May 16. What time can you start streaming the series?
If you enjoy satirical historical fiction, you’ll be excited about The Great heading to a streaming service near you. While a Hulu Original in the U.S., it’s an Amazon Original internationally. What time can you start streaming The Great on Amazon Prime Video Canada and other international locations?
This is a hard one to determine. Most Amazon Originals can drop slightly earlier than the stated day, especially in North America, but this isn’t strictly an Amazon Original globally; just internationally.

The show is already dropping a day later than viewers in the U.S. will get it. The series will be on Hulu at midnight ET on Friday, May 15. So, what about on Amazon Prime Video Canada? There’s a chance that it will drop in the evening of Friday, May 15 instead of fans having to wait an extra day. After all, it would drop at midnight GMT.
However, because this belongs to another company in the U.S., there’s a chance that it will only drop at midnight in the local time zone wherever you are. That’s what happens with American Gods when it’s released on Prime Video Canada as it’s a STARZ Original in the U.S.
The Great will drop as one binge. Despite may TV shows on Hulu getting weekly releases, The Great is going to be released all in one go. This means no need to wait weekly for more episodes on Prime Canada.
If you’re a fan of satirical historical comedy, like The Favourite, then this is a show you’ll want to check out. It tells a fun story of Catherine the Great before she became queen. Don’t expect historical accuracy, but do expect entertainment.
The Great will be on Amazon Prime Video Canada (and other international locations) by midnight in your local time zone on Saturday, May 16.
