(Pocket-lint) - Amazon has made the first episode of The Grand Tour available to watch for free over the Christmas period.

All Amazon customers in the UK, not just those with Prime membership, can now watch "The Holy Trinity", the one hour 11 minute debut of the new show starring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. It is free to view until midnight on Boxing Day (26 December).

It joins all of the first episodes of Amazon Originals drama, comedy and kids series, which are also free to view on Amazon Instant Video. These include The Man in the High Castle, Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle.

What's more, as you can get a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime, you could watch many of the other episodes if you like the first - in many cases binge on the entire seasons.

In the case of The Grand Tour that's another five episodes that are currently available and a few more that will be released weekly before the end of your free trial period.
