I cant wait to see new episodes. I have Amazon prime already I use it for work and home for the free quick shipping. I never really use the Amazon video or music but may soon now that i will have to set it up on my Apple tv and ruko's to watch top gear.

Yeah kind of curious how it will work for the episodes if you have to pay a dollar or two per episode (depending on if you have prime or not) or if they will be free to prime members.

should be a hell of a first episode.
Awesome, the episode they really wanted to do, and were talking about just before Clarkson's incident.

I would bet that most of you that are claiming that this form of viewing is dead don't live in rural USA where in many places internet is still pretty slow.

I watched these guys all the time when the were on real TV and so did my car buddies. Not one of them, including me, is going to pay an extra 90 a month to watch one show. So boys, you lost many viewers here in central Pa.
$90.00 a year, but still rather a lot, if you're already paying for cable.

Bear in mind, what follows isn't in anyway criticizing your point. My Dad's actually fairly pissed about the show being online only, at least as far as we know now, because my folks are in rural Georgia, and bandwidth availability there is pretty much the same as it sound like being for you all. So, I can relate to where you're coming from.

Here in the Dayton / Cincy area, I can point toward any number of households that have "cut the cord." Those that haven't are retaining some form of cable or satellite TV primarily for sports.

For me, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, between them for a year, come to just under $400.00. The streams from any service can be pushed to any TV in the house from pretty much any device, including my phone, which is invariably wherever I am.

I'm coming at this from the perspective of someone who's been neck deep in IT since '93 or so. My housemates are also similarly immersed in the industry. So adapting to programming being streamed, instead of being provided through more traditional means, had almost no barrier of entry for us. That we've got ridiculous bandwidth available made it even easier. We will often have four or so streamed programs, and two or three online gaming sessions going, and no one suffers any lag or latency.

I wouldn't be surprised if some network, Velocity / Discovery or the like, licenses the shows for more traditional airings. There's money to be made from showing them, it will happen. You may see them six months after they're available online, but they'll still be out there.

Like folks mentioned earlier though, even if you don't have Prime, you can log on Amazon and pay a buck or so to view individual episodes, maybe a twenty to fifty for an entire season of something.

When better bandwidth does come to central Pennsylvania, I really suggest checking out some of the opportunities to stream stuff. Hanging out on the couch, pushing things up to the big screen is awesome. Just YouTube stuff, like HotRod or Motortrend is a good way to kill time, and the viewing accommodations can't be beat. Heck, I'll push some things to the living room, just to mess with my pets sometimes. It really is almost scifi like, what we can do with data these days.

I don't consider myself young, but I cut the cable chord also. Between Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon prime my family hasn't complained. Only thing missing is news on the spot and sports. But between cable, Internet, three HD DVRs and HBO my monthly bill was almost 200 a month. Now it's only 50 a month for Internet and I'm debating on killing it also as my 4g is so good here and having no limit Sprint I may start just hot spotting all my devises.

None of my male coworkers have cable anymore.

Not a Prime member, so I won't be watching.
