soz about the last (almost crypted message)
I kinda found this board after a "fun" day out.....

but i need some questions answered because england sucks for tv.

So, does anyone know if and when all episodes are gonna be shown/repeated and if so what channel?   i sorta missed seasons 3,4 and 5 so i feel i'm kinda missing out  frown

Also, i read a post about a possibility of the latter seasons not being released on to DVD, is this true?  if it is then i will vouch to bring FOX down in anyway possible.......

Thanks chumps.

If you have Sky, look forward to season "5" starting March or April I think. If, like me, you only see Futurama on Channel 4, prepare to wait a while for season 4 as usual.

Right:
FOX have 16 (i think it's 16) episodes left to air. They aren't airing any this February either. Season 5 has no date as to when it may end.

The DVDs not being released is a rumour, that's all. Apparently there is more evidence that they are being released.

Channel 4 won't air Futurama for some time, and 'I Dated A Robot' the S3 finale does not appear to have an airdate, and may not be show.
Cartoon Network's Adult Swim bought the right to air all 72 episodes of Futurama and are showing them on weekdays. They are currently on week 2 of airing them in production order.

CN UK is NOT showing Futurama.  CN UK is not the same entity as CN USA, and doesn't have identical rights to CN USA's shows.  In the UK, only Sky_One and C4 have to rights to air Futurama.

And Season 3 WILL be released on DVD.

I wonder if we'll get The Route Of All Evil with that? At this rate it may be out before TROAE is shown on Sky One

Why are all the Aussies moaning? C4 suck with Futurama, they show it at 6:30PM, cut it to pieces and then don't even air the S3 finale 'I Dated a Robot'.

The info about the release date for season 3 come from payndz, so it's quite reliable.

And stop moaning about bad scheduling of Futurama, I have you all beat.  tongue No Futurama for almost 15 months, no info on when (if ever) we'll get new episodes, and the station broadcasting it here just started to charge you 20$/month. So I don't even have the channel anymore.

Denmark, Tv2Zulu

The thing is Tv2Zulu used to be a public station (a subsidiary to tax-funded Tv2), with additional income from advertising (between programs, nothing of that ad-block things thank god), but after a new management took over they've instituted some changes. At it stand right now, they're about to lose their public funds over this (40% of their income), so things look bleak.

20 U.S. Dollars per month? I don't even think HBO charges that much here; it's about 12 U.S. Dollars per month.

We have PBS (Public Broadcasting Service), which is a nationwide network supported by viewer and corporate donations. Around here (North Carolina) it's broadcast on multiple stations statewide by the University of North Carolina. Maybe TV2Zulu could go that way?

Zulu is actually taking the different direction. Moving from public funds to commercial business. Corporate donations would be viewed as very suspicious here, as many think it would color the news coverage of TV2. Besides it's just not part of our cultur.

We have 4 national tv stations here: DRTV, DR2, TV2 and TV2Zulu (DR2 and TV2Zulu only on cable or sattelite).

DRTV/DR2 are 100% public funded (tax-money) and owned, in exchange of providing a broad range of quality programs.

TV2/TV2Zulu are part public, part advertizing funded and act as a private company. Although the state own all shares, the station act autonomous. claiming the ad market has been low the last couple of years, they announced that TV2Zulu would switch to payment. They emmidiately lost 60% of viewership, as lots of community reciever unions opted out, until they had the chance to ask their members if they would like to keep Zulu, and pay the prize. Most expect the members to turn down Zulu.

And that's very I stand. Not that it's a bad thing. I suspect Zulu never would air season 3 and 4 anyway.

Wow, got carried away there.
