We finally have a date!
It's about time...
I saw that. Note they also moved it from Saturday to Sunday nights.
??? Well, yes, it IS about time. But we've known that for literally decades!
I preferred the Saturday night time slot. That way, I could watch it Sunday morning. I probably won't be able to watch it now until Monday night.
More than that. Since it is about time.
Ditto. I'm glad they finally set a date, but the change from Saturday to Sunday is going to be a bit inconvenient.
You have 4 other shows recording that same hour on Sunday to be able to have a conflict? Wow! I haven't seen a recording conflict since I switched from Series 2 to Premier and went from 2 to 4 tuners.
Does BBC America show the same exact episode that the BBC shows in the UK? Or do they still add those annoying on-screen overlays, and insert commercial breaks?
No, it's because now I have to wait until Monday after work to watch it instead of being able to watch on Sunday morning.
I think you know the answer to that, and you forgot to mention that they also push the closing credits into a tiny box in one corner so that they can air a promo for next week's episode.
I was hoping that they had changed things since the last time I watched the BBCA version!
And if you are watching on comcast, they down convert the BBCA 1080i to 720p.
I still don't understand why there isn't a subscription BBC channel package available worldwide. I bet it would be very popular at ~$5-$10/month.
Because the BBC makes more money from selling the exclusive rights to their shows to various channels in various countries than they would by selling non-exclusive rights plus having a worldwide streaming service.
They think they make more money, but unless they try it, how will they know?
Well, there is BritBox. It’s a subscription channel that the BBC has in conjunction with ITV. Probably not worldwide, but it is available in the US. I watch it a lot.
Yep, that's a good service. But I would love to see all BBC channels streamed live, 24/7 (with on-demand available too).
Yeah but there's a lot of BBC/ITV content that doesn't make it to BritBox sadly.
The problem is that the BBC doesn’t own all the content on the service. They also have production companies that supply them shows. An the production companies own the world wide rights to the shows. As much as I would like a BBC iPlayer here in the states. Just like US Shows are shown in England on various channels too.
I just use magic means to watch the shows I watch.
