If you’re something of a car enthusiast, there’s a good chance you might have seen the BBC’s Top Gear series. You might also recall that its trio of presenters – Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May – left the series and went on to work with Amazon on a new series called The Grand Tour.
This is great news for those who enjoyed their dynamic friendship on the screen, but the bad news is that it was only available to Amazon Prime subscribers. Or at least that was the case until now where in the video above, Clarkson, May, and Hammond revealed that The Grand Tour would be released globally in December and will be available in 200 countries.
Given that Amazon Prime’s availability is rather limited at the moment, it makes sense that Amazon would want to make the show more available to non-Prime subscribers. Given that the show also costs a reported £160 million, making it available globally will definitely help the company recoup their investment a lot quicker.
The show’s first episode is expected to debut on the 18th of November, which is this Friday, and that is when Prime members get access to it first. Note that Amazon has also announced that they will be discounting Prime membership for a day from $99 to $79, so if you’d rather not wait for its global availability, then you might want to take advantage of this offer.
