http://www.amazon.co.uk/b?ie=UTF8&node=7124555031Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are reuniting to create an all-new car show, exclusively for Amazon Prime. The show will be produced by the trio?s long time executive producer Andy Wilman. On working with Amazon, Jeremy Clarkson said ?I feel like I've climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship.? The first show will go into production shortly and arrive exclusively on Amazon Prime in 2016.
There are already "webrip" torrents of all series on Netflix/Hulu etc already, so the answer to your question is that it will definately be available for download.I hope there is a way to get the episodes without having to sign up for Amazon prime whatever....
Wonder how much money and liberties they are throwing at the guys to outbid Netflix. Seems like a huge get for them.
