    Or rather, they are involved with it, but it seems they haven't made a decision on it yet. There is an interview with the head of Amazon Studios.

    They haven't given up on it yet! :look

    I knew there was strong speculation, but it's nice to have official confirmation.

    I'm excited about it, but also a bit worried I might be disappointed. Lets hope for the very best!

    Ah, that really stinks Ida Sedai . . . It will probably be available on DVD eventually . . . at least, I imagine it would.

    We have Prime in the UK, so not just US only, but maybe not all international countries?

    Maybe by the time this becomes a thing it’ll be more expansive?

    But woo!

    I really hope Prime is possible to get outside US as well. I don't want to wait until it gets out at DVD! :horsey That's too long to wait :(

    This is exciting. I stopped my Prime subscription last year but will renew it for this!

    It is outside of US, but it's not fully global yet, here is the list:

    United States
    United Kingdom
    Spain
    Japan
    Italy
    Germany
    France
    Canada
    Austria
    India

    Which gives me hope that it'll extend further in time.

    Woooo!

    I'm just glad to see that it's been picked up by a network/streaming service, and the head of the studio has acknowledged that she's looking into it.

    This is more progress than we saw previously! :look

    I was hoping for Netflix or Amazon because both have large budgets ear marked for new material, and both will inevitably looking to fill the GoT gap when it finishes.

    So... Amazon, it has come to this.
    All these years I have deftly avoided paying you subscription service fees and now, NOW, you have finally found my weakness!

    *EMBRACES THE SOURCE & PULLS OUT HER DEBT CARD*

    COME DANCE WITH ME AMAZON PRIME, I DO NOT FEAR YOUR FEES!

    ... lol ... well, I pop my head in and learn this is afoot. GREAT news. :) Kinda glad Amazon landed it. I think they have the cash to do it right and they need could stand for a big budget fantasy epic under their banner. I won't set my hopes too high, lest they be dashed, but man... this could be great.

    They released a teaser about it. Let me find the link later, but at least the show runner for the series is a long time fan of the books!
