Amazon reportedly paid around $7m per episode for Top Gear

"Fans of the British car show "Top Gear" rejoiced earlier this week when news broke that its three hosts have a new TV show on way after inking a deal with Amazon, which plans to let members of its Prime shopping club stream for free.
Amazon reportedly paid a whopping $250 million for three years of global rights on the new series, winning the show despite competition from ITV and Netflix.
That's about $7 million per episode, but analysts are calling it a big win for the ecommerce company."
