I'm sure the budget will be lower, just hoping they can keep doing some of the over the top stunts and races that made that show so much fun to watch.

Good for them. Between this and the Bosch series Amazon is a good watch.

The new show will be called TOP STEER with a new tame racing driver, called THE STICK

.... since BBC owns the names, I am curious what they come up with.

If it's not available for viewing with Amazon Prime then it will be an instant Fail. Or atleast not taking advantage of its full potential.

Just get a Roku. It streams internet apps from wi-fi or cable to your tv via whichever type of port you need. The most expensive model is like $80, one time fee.

Amazon's producing the show so I don't see why it wouldn't be on Prime.

Hmm, you shouldn't have to. At worst, televisions have been accepting VGA cables for about 10 years now, longer if you consider commercial monitors. Even my parents 10 year old 55" Panasonic 4:3 projector is connected to streaming using RGB cables. HDMI is the current "standard" input and is compatible with nearly every computer/laptop, especially with the available converters.

Current tech is even available to delete the cable box 100% without sacrificing any of your programming and increasing the quality of signal. With "television signal companies" now costing between $1,000 and $4,000 a year per household...it is simply not worth it any longer.
