Thanks to our need for constant amusement, whether you're on a plane, train or automobile, these days you never have to look at a rubbish book again. The Eurostar high-speed train network has had a bring-your-own-device entertainment service of its own for a while now, but a new partnership with Amazon means Prime Video-exclusive TV shows are joining that catalog. Provided you've hopped onto one of Eurostar's newer e320 trains, you can connect to the on-board WiFi, load up the Eurostar app and you'll find shows like The Grand Tour, Transparent and Man in the High Castle ready for streaming. And whether you're going from London to Paris or Brussels to Lille, there'll be something on there to keep the kids quiet for an hour, too.

The addition of Prime Video shows arrives alongside Eurostar's updated app, which includes better booking, mobile ticketing and loyalty card features. Watching Jeremy Clarkson complain about everything might not be as relaxing as the underwater VR experience Eurostar offered passengers over the summer, but you can't argue with free.
