Newcastle knight wrote:It might end up on one of the satellite channels. The new Channel Virgin 1 is showing the
original knight rider in the morning and afternoon now, they must have acquired it
from Bravo as they have stopped showing it.
Strictly speaking, Bravo and Virgin 1 are both part of Virgin Media's stable of TV channels.
There's nothing really in the way to stop Bravo showing the original Knight Rider again.
Having said that, it is of course entirely possible that Virgin Media could acquire the UK
rights to the new Knight Rider, and show it exclusively on Virgin 1 before any of our
regular terrestrial TV networks |(BBC, ITV, Ch4, five) can get their hands on it.
There is a way that we in the UK may be able to see it online before it reaches any
of the TV channels, and not necessarily by illegally downloading it via BitTorrent.
A YouTube style video sharing website called Veoh.com
, allows you to download
videos from the site to your Windows PC or Apple Mac, using the VeohTV app.
Under the "Channels" tab in the VeohTV app, amongst others, NBC and CBS have a
selection of their programs available for streaming. Although the CBS channel has
mostly restricted it's programs either to viewing in the US only, or some strange
codec that virtually no-one uses, the NBC channel has unrestricted viewing.
Currently on there, there's stuff like Heroes, 30 Rock, The Office, Bionic Woman,
the two late night NBC comedy chat shows, The Tonight Show, and Late Night.
Since the new modern version of Bionic Woman is available on VeohTV before
it's officially started over here on ITV2, I'd say that a good chance that the
new version of Knight Rider is likely to make an appearance too.
