Amazon has "millions" of European viewers? Or is that worldwide? It's admittedly a fairly small sample size, but I don't know a single person who subscribes to Amazon TV. The good news for Jeremy...

Why don't they skip a step and just give the BBC access to everyone in Britain's bank accounts? Then the saintly Beeb could deduct as much money as they feel is fair for the brilliance they churn...

The viewers are a type of customer. ITV is screening programmes that they hope will appeal to the viewing audience, which in turn drives revenue.
