Oh oh, looks like another Aggy claim shot all to hell. I can't believe
not only does Amazon Prime carry the series but Amazon carries the
Could it be that Aggy is full of shit?
More evidence of your total derangement and refusal to be informed.
Amazon Prime no longer carries Doctor Who in the US.
So, the goalposts have shifted again: from "Amazon has dropped Doctor
Who," to "Amazon Prime no longer carries Doctor Who," to "Amazon Prime
no longer carries Doctor Who in the US." What next?
Amazingly enough, if you click this link you’ll see that Doctor Who is
currently available on Amazon Prime in the US. (“Watch with Prime” is a
separate option from the buying options). So Aggy’s latest goalposts are
not only exceptionally mobile, they’re also a lie.
There's no such option available and I'm a Prime subscriber. 'Add Season
to Watchlist' if that's what you mean is available on any content sold
by Amazon even if it's not part of Prime and you therefore have to pay
to rent or buy it. For exampled 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6'. Content

The licence period for Amazon Prime’s Doctor Who viewing will expire
shortly. But they’re not “dropping” it by choice - BBCA negotiated a more
lucrative exclusive deal with HBO.
That is absolute bullshit. BBC America dumped Doctor Who after the
disaster it became thanks to Chibnall. Like all similar deals they had
the option to renew the license for a predetermined fee, offer a lower
fee, or to match the fee offered by an alternative bidder. Amazone were
not willing to pay the agreed renewal fee which would have given then
the series automatically before any other bidder and Amazon itself were
asked to offer the highest priced they were willing to offer. Therefore
it is clear that HBO Max offered a lower price than the renewal fee
Amazon had previously negotiated and Amazon were not willing to match
it, and thus duped the show because it was not making them any money.
The same thing happened when Doctor Who was dumped by Netflix when it
went woke and Netflix were not willing to renew it, therefore Amazon
acquired the series by paying a lower price than Netflix. This is also
true for Star Trek: Picard which Netflix had first bidding right to but
which they dumped after the woke disaster of Star Trek: Discovery and
Amazon paid a lower price than Netflix would have had to pay to show in
the UK. On top of that not one single broadcaster in the UK has bid to
carry the latest Star Trek: Short Treks series because it's pure poison.
