Actually, I could import Season 5 or 6 or 6A or whatever the hell it is for Blu-Ray right? Blu-Ray is region free. Well it is on most of them.  big grin

Yes and no. Blu-ray has only three regions to them. Regiond A, B and C. However, they can be played worldwide.

F**K! I asked Eric Rogers (again) to try and find out more about the UK air date, and...

'@DannyJC13 Dude, I just don't know... none of the writers know... Matt Groening doesn't even know.'

GRRRR!  mad

*EDIT* Good-ish news everyone!

'@DannyJC13 You'll get it, I'm sure of it... hang tight... and I promise, if I hear ANYTHING, you'll be the first to know here!'

Comedy central has the new Futurama in the US doesn't it?
So would that mean it would be on Comedy central in the UK and not Sky1?
But then again Comedy central airs south park in the same week in both the US and UK..

No, Sky own the rights to air the show in the UK -the UK's Comedy Central doesn't have the same Futurama syndication rights that they do in America.

Shouldn't Sky keep the rights to the original episodes and the movies, then CC get the rights for Season 6 onwards? hmpf

As far as I know, it works like this:

Fox own the rights to Futurama, they own the rights to air any episode they want -but they have no desire to air the show anymore, including any of the new episodes.

Comedy Central USA pay for syndication rights as well as to air the new episodes that have started up.

Sky is a Fox company. It's basically the UK's version of Fox. Because of that, they also own all the rights to the show by default in the UK.

Comedy Central UK hasn't bought the syndication rights to the show and therefore can't show the new episodes.

Sky may eventually decide to show the newer episodes (they did eventually get round to playing the movies, I believe). Like I said, I suspect that they might be waiting for all of season 6 to be available instead of airing half-season batches. The UK tends to operate by production seasons rather than American broadcast seasons.

I hope you're right. frown

Also, do you think that if new Futurama won't make it onto UK TV at all, they might just release them directly to DVD? I mean they can't just ignore all the fans from the UK and the rest of the world.

Has any other country recieved Season 6 besides the US?

It will make it's way here eventually, even if it is just on DVD.

Bender's Big Score took 6 months longer to be released in the UK than in the US, but the later films came out sooner -in fact, Into the Wild Green Yonder came out a day or two before the US release.

I imagine season 6 will take it's time but subsequent seasons will come out sooner because they'll have some sort of release strategy in place for them.

I e-mailed CC US and asked them if they knew any tiny single piece of information about Season 6 hitting the UK / other Countries that have not yet recieved it, and I attached this video by our very own 'Rush':

Could you tell or give us a source, where you found this neat, if true info?

And then my lame ass lazily made Youtube video would have an answer. XD Which may need to be deleted in time.

I'm very happy about this as it means we're one step closer to a region 2 DVD / blu-ray release.

I bet that, as I predicted, this is all of season 6 (by the time they finish airing season 6A on Sky One, 6B will have finished airing in America and they can just carry on airing them in the UK).

Nah, I bet they air 6B as 7A is on in the US, then 7A here while 7B is on there, etc. It's just how cruel they are. wink

And nobody get your hopes up, this still isn't 100% confirmed... We've had news from ONE crappy little source... How official is this DigiGuide thing?

Just flicked forward to the 22nd on my TV guide, I can 100% CONFIRM that Rebirth is airing at 8pm on Sky One. I didn't check for IAGDL, will look later. wink

Yep, IAGDL is on right after it. love I'll be getting this Season on Blu-Ray, the first Futurama Blu-Ray I will have purchased. big grin

Just realised, the Comedy Central joke in Rebirth is just going to flop now...

Same here, I don't have Sky HD at the moment, I'm hoping the quality will be okay-ish, but either way I'm gonna get the blu-ray. big grin

Nope, but the description for the eps are accurate, right names, right plots, and they are both on again at the same time again the day after.

And sorry about beating you dude, makes sense that I discovered it, since I was the one who set up the thread. laff

Hm, the eps are airing just like they did in the US, starting with a double bill, then one ep a week, and one thing is on my mind, when will the Holiday Spectacular air? Beginning of Oct? Or November like in the US? confused

First off, it's Awesome, not Awsome, second, most of their TV sucks (no offence, British TV is even worse. Doctor Who rocks though).

And 3rd, I imagine 6B will be as I previously said, when 7A starts in America. If they show 6B this year, I will be shocked. No way will it be here until ALL of it has aired in the US.

Well they did do pretty well with there Comedy Friday lineup's with The Simpsons and all the other shows and Sky 1 will be finished airing futurama in october (or later if they stop airing them in doubles) where America would most likely have finished.

Wait, you nitpick his spelling of "awesome" but not the inappropriate capitalization of it? Or the inappropriate lack of capitalization in "american"? Or the lack of some sort of punctuation between "american" and "I mean"? Or the abomination of misusing "they're" when "their" or even "there," would have been right? Or the fact that "tv" needs to be in capital letters to be correct?

If you're going to nitpick, don't make a half-assed job of it wink
