Amazon is set to challenge Netflix worldwide with a massive expansion of its on-demand video streaming service featuring its remake of the BBC's global hit "Top Gear".The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that Prime would likely expand to some 200 countries and territories in a direct challenge to Netflix, which at the start of this year expanded to 190 countries to proclaim itself the first global television service.Netflix and Amazon Prime Video have both ramped up their investment in programming, together spending some $7.5 billion (7 billion euros) – more than competitors CBS, HBO, or Turner, according to IHS Markit.Amazon has not disclosed the number of Prime subscribers, but research company CIRP estimated in late September that in the U.S. alone there were 65 million, up 38 percent from a year earlier.
