I'd rather watch 1 episode of Top Gear than have to watch any of the bloody Olympics or Tennis, or Golf (etc etc)

We all have our own preferences.
If you don't like something, don't watch it

Members of an online forum are very different to the general public. There is no way illegal downloads of this show will exceed legitimate views. Amazon don't disclose numbers but they have pretty high membership of Prime in Europe and US.

People who download illegal TV is still a minority, and for TV & films it tends to be kids etc who would never pay for the legal content anyway whether that's a TV licence or subscription or one off purchase.

I think you might be surprised how many people will download this illegally all over the world. It will be well into the millions.

To be fair, I've seen a few episodes and it's been good fun, but I still know nothing about, and have little interest in, cars. So it's no bother to me if I miss it.

It brought to the discussion the fact that there will be Prime members who have the chance to watch it legally, yet won't, as it doesn't interest them. Just offering a different side to the story.

Um... sorry?

I've got Prime but I'll probably download it "illegally" so I can watch it via Kodi.

No it was set in Whitby and written by Bram Stoker in Whitby. Whitby is famous for Dracula and fish and chips and I live in Kent
