Netflix may be negotiating to stream BBC’s new Top Gear

Netflix may be negotiating to stream BBC’s new Top Gear

We already know that the new car show from Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May — essentially the "new" Top Gear — has found a home on Amazon's streaming video service, and that the BBC's reboot of the "old" Top Gear will debut on the UK network in late May with a new set of hosts. But about when it comes time for this iteration of Top Gear to head to streaming services? If a new report from The Guardian is correct, Netflix is already making early bids for the show's rights.

Doctor Who is coming to Amazon Prime

Doctor Who is coming to Amazon Prime

This hasn't been a great year for Doctor Who fans. It's the first time since the series was rebooted that will get no new episodes, save for the Christmas Special. It'll be sometime in 2017 before we see regular episodes return, and as a kicker, the show was pulled from both Netflix and Hulu. This means that it is currently not streaming anywhere that's accessible in the US. But that's about to change.

The rumors coming out of the UK about the new Top Gear haven't been flattering. The BBC fired Jeremy Clarkson after an incident involving beating up a man over a steak. Once Clarkson got the boot, his cohorts in the incredibly popular car show left the BBC along with him. Clarkson and crew will have a new show debuting this year on Amazon.

Doctor Who left Netflix so the BBC could launch their own streaming service

Doctor Who left Netflix so the BBC could launch their own streaming service

Earlier this week, Netflix announced that Doctor Who would be leaving its service in the US. Being an avid fan of the show, this was rather disappointing to me. It's hard enough to get access to the brand new episodes, but at least before I could watch the old ones at my leisure. But the move isn't exactly a surprise.

BBC now sells shows for download from digital store

BBC now sells shows for download from digital store

BBC's iPlayer is easily the most popular way to watch the network's shows digitally, however its main drawback is that its content is limited to 30 days after it airs. This makes older seasons or series unavailable, except for DVDs or Blu-rays. The UK broadcaster is now looking to address this issue, with the launch of its new BBC Store, a digital shop where people can buy and download shows like Sherlock, Doctor Who, and many more.

BBC to come to USA via Netflix-style service

BBC to come to USA via Netflix-style service

The BBC will soon have a Netflix-style streaming service in the United States, so said the Lord Hall of Birkenhead, the BBC’s director-general earlier today. This internet-based service will bring BBC-made content to the United States in a subscription-based model service. This will be done, suggested Lord Hall, in order to "raise commercial income to supplement the license fee so we can invest as much as possible in content for U.K. audiences."

BBC’s GTA movie ‘The Gamechangers’ gets first trailer

The BBC is making an unofficial movie about Grand Theft Auto, one that has already earned it a lawsuit.
