    Agreed, at £80 even with all the perks I don't think its worth it.

    That said Amazon tend to sell episodes on their own so I assume they will do the same with this too (expect it to be expensive though)

    Amazon must have paid mega big bucks to beat of netflix and others.

    Their only formidable competitor was Netflix tbh unless they waited till the 2 year broadcast ban was lifted.

    Also, if anybody does want to sign up to prime the best way would be to sign up for a student account which has the same perks but only costs £40 a year. You can use your children's school email or some have reported that alumni email goes through the system as well. Worst case scenario would be to send any old acceptance letter and just change the date which many have done too!

    Does that work? I have work ac.uk email was going to sign up few month ago but the form asks for your course details, start dates, end dates etc.

    People just lie, all they check is the acceptance letter or the ac.uk. As its a uni address, all they will do is send a link asking that it is indeed you and to confirm the subscription. As for the details, just put any degree and use standard start dates like 09/2015 to 06/2018 would be a standard UG course. Say you're doing med and make it 5 years!

    Looking at the quality of the other articles of that site, I would take that article with a pinch of salt personally.

    Let's be honest. Top Gear has been killed off. What they are trying to resuscitate will not have the same format or feel to it. It should have been renamed as well. And bringing LeBlanc is just another proof of it for me.

    Don't think I'll be watching it anymore I'd rather watch Top Gear USA but it's not been on over here for years now :Frown:

    BBC should have killed Top Gear as it was when it had the chance. They had a chance here to do something very different - back to a real motoring programme even, rather than motoring related light entertainment - but it feels as though they will just try to re-hash the old format with new presenters.

    I won't be watching Clarkson, May & Hammond on Amazon either. I think the format has run its course and now will slowly fade away...
