What is Downton Abbey about?

Lord Grantham sees his family heritage, especially the grand country home Downton Abbey, as his mission in life. The death of his heir aboard the Titanic means distant cousin Matthew Crawley, a Manchester lawyer, suddenly is next in line and accepts moving onto the vast estate with his even more modernist, socially engaged mother, who clashes with his lordship's domineering, conservative mother, the dowager countess. Marrying off the daughters is another concern. Meanwhile, the butler presides over a staff which serves the family, but also lead most of their entire lives in the servants' quarters, intriguing amongst themselves.

Where to watch Downton Abbey

Amazon Prime Video is one of the most popular streaming platforms in the UK, with a broad range of TV Shows, Movies and documentaries. Prime has also recently moved in to live sports, giving customers the option of streaming Premier League football and Rugby Union Internationals.

Got a question about Amazon Prime?

Amazon pretty much built its popularity in the UK around shows like The Grand Tour, Vikings and Good Omens. But the addition of Live sports like the Premier League, International Rugby and Tennis mean it has become much more than that.
Amazon Prime can be added to your bill whether you’re a Sky, BT or Virgin customer.
If you’re a sports fan then Amazon wins hands down. Both providers have a fantastic selection of TV Shows and Films, and in this respect, it’s tough to separate them!
