I'm very much looking forward to watching this series in the UK, but as I don't have any TV packages aside from Freeview, I would be relying on iTunes.

The FX network have picked it up, and broadcast it a week behind the US. However, it does not appear in iTunes. Does anyone have any information on FX's iTunes habits? Do the generally put their shows up at all? Is it even FX's problem, or AMC's?

I know that I've seen it in iTunes, but I'm in the US, so I don't know about its availaibilty overseas.

I hope you get it soon though. It's a great show.

Tis a great show! I know AMC is playing at least the first episode on their site, so you have that option to at least watch episode 1 there, or on Hulu as its also on Hulu.

Other than that I'm not sure about your options. Either way I suggest finding it because your missing out!

Kinda lame this season is only 6 episodes, but next is supposedly 12/13 or so. I'm sure by the time the hype grows so will the availability.

boogei: I've thought about this, but I believe the simplest way to pay on a foreign iTunes Store is through gift cards. Can you recommend a reputable place to buy them?

Im in the UK and i am willing to pay but i cant as it's not on itunes and even thought i have a virgin XL package i don't get FX? So 720P torrents will have to do. Real Shame Sky 1 or Channel 4 didn't snap this up because nobody watches FX channel and nobody i know even knows this show exists......real shame.

I agree but it is a stop gap until you can get it on itunes - i don't see too big a problem using torrents of tv programs in this way......perhaps it will even encourage future shows to be released simultaneously.... so we in the UK can get things at the same time as those in the US

FX is part of the basic Sky+ package which has the Record Season feature.

Maybe iTunes isn't the easiest way to catch good tv?

If it is available on Hulu (is this true?) couldn't you just use a VPN to point your IP address to USA and watch it on there?

I don't think something like this would be very difficult to set up if you are computer savvy.
