The NBCUniversal-owned channel will launch the USA Network show on July 21 following an agreement with cousin NBCUniversal International Distribution. Season one will debut with a feature-length, uninterrupted double episode.
Amazon Prime Instant Video already offers it via the SVOD window in the UK, with the likes of Showcase in Canada airing it elsewhere.
The Golden Globe-winning series follows Rami Malek (The Pacific) as a computer programmer and vigilante hacker who is given the chance by a mysterious underground group to destroy the heads of multinational companies he feels are ruining the world.
The 10x60mins series, from Universal Cable Productions, has been a stand-out performer for NBCU cable network USA, and won several awards.
“Mr. Robot is a huge success, with several outstanding and award-winning performances,” said Chrystele Fremaux, VP, programming, UK and emerging markets, NBCUniversal International Networks. “It’s a must-see series that we’re pleased to make part of our drama offering on Universal Channel.”
