Sadly I cannot get an answer from any American friends on my MSN contacts.

Can anyone stream an episode right now at http://dynamic.abc.go.com/ ?

All I get is an error saying that episodes are not available and I should try again later.

Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

I am having no problems watching anything on that site.

I do believe that it is available only to those in the United States..

Quoting Singapore_Air (Thread starter):

I would have thought the message would read ..

Only viewers in the United States can watch these full length-episodes

The reasons the network will give include-
Different countries have different copyright laws and conditions.
The advertisers only pay to reach US viewers so network will not pay for bandwidth to reach foreigners.
The network may be attempting to protect overseas customers that may have purchased but not yet shown the episodes.

Do I think those reasons are BS?
Yes, the networks(more specfically perhaps, the shows producers) need to look at how to reach markets differently in this new age rather than cling desperately to a 20th century business model.
This of course also applies to music companes along with radio and print media.


If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!
