Amazon Prime Delights ‘Top Gear' Fans, With Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond And James May TV Show Announcement

Amazon Prime look like the real winners, following the announcement that ‘Top Gear’ hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond And James May have signed a new deal with the company.

Jeremy and co. have agreed to at least three series of a new, as-yet-unnamed, motoring programme, that will be a direct rival to the BBC’s Chris Evans-fronted ‘Top Gear’.

The show will begin airing next year

Plenty of fans took to Twitter to discuss the deal, with many declaring that they’ll be signing up to the £79-a-year streaming service, as you’ll only be able to see the trio’s latest project by subscribing.

Within minutes of the announcement, ‘Amazon Prime’ was trending on Twitter, and tweets included:

Although admittedly, not everyone was impressed:

Amazon Prime launched back in February 2014, and since then the service has expanded, and they already produce a number of original shows, including ‘Transparent’ and ‘Extant’, which stars Halle Berry.

Just last week, Amazon unveiled an accompanying music streaming service, which will rival Spotify and Apple Music.
