Re: [torchwood] January 16th Season Premiere
- While we don't know the exact date yet, HD Net will be airing Series 2 -
probably soon after BBC America's air date (it was 9 days after BBC America
for Series 1). HD Net will also be airing the episodes completely uncut,
commercial free, and no on screen banner ads. HD Net will be airing the
episodes in their native High Definition. Might be worth the wait for some
people who don't want to watch BBC America's version with commercials, time
edits, and banner ads.
In response to another message in the thread - Network Ten's broadcasts of
Torchwood were apparently uncut (albeit with ads, and the last 6 at
Midnight). Ten has the rights to Series 2, so when they eventually use them
there is every chance the episodes will be uncut. Also - has anyone checked
out the Series 1 broadcasts on UKTV. If they are uncut, then Series 2 will
be as well.
For everybody, the great equalizer is the DVD releases. UK and Australian
releases should be Regions 2 and 4. US/Canadian releases should be Region 1.
A player that has been altered to Region Free (Region 0) should play them
all. Based on Series 1's pattern, there will be several partial series sets
for Torchwood Series 2 in the next few months in Region 2 before the
complete Series 2 set months later.
And the less-legal methods as well, which are best discussed in e-mail
rather than a public forum that the BBC might read. If you use one of those
methods, buy the DVDs when they come out in your region. :)
