    If it becomes free content to Amazon Prime subscribers, than I love it. If they charge extra for it, I will probably pass.

    Brilliant move by Amazon.

    The best part...

    As well as the substantial financial rewards on offer, the three are said to have been attracted by a pledge by Amazon to give them a free creative rein to make the shows they want.

    As mentioned above I hope they make it free content(included content), otherwise i'll wait until it is free somewhere.

    THAT sounds positive. I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with, considering what they got away with at BBC.

    Got this email today...
    Dear Amazon customer,

    You told us you wanted to be the first to know what Clarkson, Hammond and May are up to. The boys are busy filming their new show, arriving autumn 2016, but for all their talents it turns out naming a show is much harder than they originally thought.

    Brilliant! BBC really screwed up, and this will become apparent when this new show airs (or streams). Top Gear has been my favorite show for 10 years, primarily due to the interaction of those three; Clarkson, Hammond, and May.

    Hrmm sounds like a show on the travel channel, hopefully the content is good.

    Its been so long I forget what the show is about.

    Is this the one where they time travel in a phone booth? Or is this the one about maintaining your English garden?

    Apparently it's the one where they blow up Jezza's house...
