Amazon has not provided actual numbers in regard to Man in the High Castle’s viewership; like Netflix, the streaming service does not share those inside details. Therefore, just how much of the show has been streamed or how many episodes each individual viewer watches is unknown. It is also impossible to say how much more popular Man in the High Castle is than Bosch, nor Netflix’s own original series (the Amazon series premiered the same day as Netflix’s Marvel’s Jessica Jones), nor network and cable series. 

All 10 episodes of the series are available to Amazon Prime members. For more on the show, check out EW’s full binge-watching guide to prepare you with what you need to know before and after watching each episode.
