Great news for those who can't get enough of the Crawley family—Amazon cut a deal with PBS that will bring the British period drama to Prime Instant Video exclusively. So later this year, Netflix will lose Downton. Which is exactly what Lord Grantham has grappled with in the series.

Starting today, seasons one and two are available, and the third will hit Amazon in June. And you can continue to get your fix as the show develops, because Amazon has already secured the rights to season four and season five, if it happens. Call the maids that you don't have and tell them to clear your schedule, because this is what you're doing this weekend.
