The Grand Tour to be shown on UK terrestrial TV?

In a latest interview, Andy Wilman states that he really wants the new show, The Grand Tour, to be broadcasted on terrestrial TV in UK after it has been broadcast on the Amazon Prime video.

"I would like [The Grand Tour] to be seen by as many people as possible. I would be very happy that it can be seen anywhere," He said

Wilman also said that it's up to Jeremy, Richard and May to decide whether to broadcast the series all at once, or to release a new episode each week. 

"That's their call. I would prefer weekly, I don't think there is a box-set binge quality to it," he said. "It's those three do something retarded and next week they do something else retarded."

 It seems as if both the producer and the hosts of the new show are trying to somehow broadcast the new show on  terrestrial TV. The trio are fully aware that they have a huge international fan base and releasing a show only on Amazon Prime, which is available in just 5 countries, is a huge let down for the rest. Either Amazon comes up with a deal with the UK broadcasters or they simply make their services available globally.
