      Hungary - RTLKlub http://rtlklub.hu is the Hungarian broadcaster for
      Doctor Who. Congrats, RTLKlub and all those who can see the channel.
      The name of the broadcaster in Denmark is still unknown.

      KBS 2 South Korea http://www.kbs.co.kr has concluded its run of
      Doctor Who episodes for the time being. It's replacement in the
      Sunday 11:15PM time period - Desperate Housewives.

      BBC Three http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree seems to have settled into a
      pattern with its Doctor Who repeats, at least for the next couple of
      Doctor Who - Sunday 7PM, Friday 9PM
      Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down - Sunday 7:45PM, Wednesday 8:15PM,
      Friday 9:45PM
      Doctor Who Confidential (full version) - Saturday 7ishPM
      Also, some NTL cable subscribers have a new On Demand service where
      shows on selected channels are available to watch whenever you want
      for a week. One of those channels is BBC Three, Doctor Who repeats
      and all. Telewest Broadband is launching a similar service. Whether
      that service will cover Doctor Who has yet to be confirmed.

      The Media Guardian
      (subscription required to read story) reports that the BBC is
      considering selling programs over the internet to non-UK residents.
      They may also offer advertising on their website for non-UK readers.
      No guarantee that this would include Doctor Who, of course.

      British Midland is another airline airing the new Doctor Who on its
      flights. Unknown which episode is airing right now.

      First Great Western Railway's Volo TV
      http://www.firstgreatwestern.co.uk/atyourservice/volotv.php is
      offering TV shows to watch on the train. Doctor Who is listed among
      the shows. Other shows are The Prisoner, The Persuaders, and shows
      of a similar vintage, so this could be episodes of the 1963 to 1989
      run. If you're on a Great Western train, you could be the first to
      find out.

      The BBC Press Office http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice and C21 Media
      http://www.c21media.net often announce when a Doctor Who
      international sale occurs. Worth keeping an eye on, just in case.
