‘Northern Exposure’ Available On Prime Video, Its First Time Ever On Any Streaming Platform

All six seasons of the classic multiple Emmy-winning dramedy Northern Exposure are currently streaming on Prime Video, the first time the series has streamed on any platform. Before the episodes were quietly uploaded to Prime, the series was only available for digital purchase or on DVD.

Northern Exposure starred Rob Morrow as Dr. Joel Fleischman, a recently graduated New York City physician, who is forced to practice in a small town in Alaska in order to repay the state for underwriting his medical education.
