Amazon India is offering two versions of American Gods for Prime Video members – one slightly censored, and the other untouched – in a bid to not offend anyone, accounting for Indian “cultural sensitivities”, and keep everyone else happy at the same time.
When Starz’s new fantasy show premiered last week, we noted that the episode was free of Amazon India’s usual Prime Video censorship dance, with viewers free to take in all the nudity and violence they could digest. Turns out, that’s not exactly the case.
In fact, every episode of American Gods will have two different versions for Indian audiences on Prime Video, an Amazon spokesperson told Gadgets 360. We’ve reached out for a full statement, and will update once we hear back. Meanwhile, we have since independently confirmed that is indeed the case.
