Amazon, Amazon Prime, and Cars: HH NEWS Forget Game Of Thrones: The Grand Tour ls Now The Most Illegally Downloaded Show Ever Via @carthrottlenews - Whatever the actual figure Amazon paid to put together the first series of The Grand Tour, it’s almost certainly huge. With that in mind, the company is no doubt rather keen to get a good return on its investment in the form of people coughing up the £79 annual charge for Amazon Prime membership. - Predictably though, online piracy is making a sizeable dent in Amazon’s ROT, and perhaps an even bigger one than anticipated. - According to figures obtained from analytics firm MUSO by Mail Online, Amazon lost a potential £3.2 million in revenue in the UK alone, just for the first episode. MUSO reckons the first episode was pirated 7.9 million times, while the second one clocked 6.4 million illegal downloads-streams. - Chris Elkins, chief commercial officer of MUSO, told Mail Online: “It is the most illegally downloaded programme ever…It has overtaken every big show, including Game Of Thrones, for the totals across different platforms.” Cripes. - What we can’t know is how these colossal figures shape up to the legitimate viewing figures. Amazon Prime does not reveal audience figures as a rule, and isn’t breaking that rule for TGT. - It did reveal however that Clarkson, Hammond and May’s new car show had the highest viewing figures for a debut show on the platform, beating previous record holder The Man In The High Castle.

Cars, James May, and Jeremy Clarkson: HH NEWS James May Reckons He And Clarkson Will Be "Too Old" To Make The Grand Tour In Five Years Via @carthrottlenews - Any Top Gear-Grand Tour fan must have had this thought in the back of their head at some point: how long can the trio realistically continue? Will Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May still be making car films in 10 years or more? Perhaps not, judging by recent comments from May. - Speaking to the Radio Times, the 53-year-old said: “We have to accept that fairly soon we will be too old for it. Richard Hammond is a reasonably fit bloke who looks after himself, me and Jeremy aren’t. - He added: “Jeremy is particularly decrepit and I find growing within me…a much stronger, nesty sort of instinct. Within the next five years I don’t want to be fart-arsing around.” - Given the demands of filming around the world and the “fart-arsing around” May speaks of, you’d have to say fair enough to that. At 46 Richard Hammond is 10 years younger than the eldest of the trio - Clarkson - and as May alluded, not quite so unfit and “decrepit”. - So, if Clarkson and May did ‘retire’ in five year’s time, would that effectively end The Grand Tour? Could it still continue with Hammond and a pair of replacements for the other two? There is of course the possibility that the elder pair would continue to create studio-based segments, leaving Hammond and perhaps a couple others (Rory Reid and Chris Harris poached from Top Gear, perhaps?) to be sent out to do the more intensive stuff. - Or perhaps the duo will continue for many years more, rendering all that extreme speculation pointless. What do you think?
