Hi,

I've been unable to watch any of Dr Horrible yet. I have a slow internet connection and the Hulu viewer just stops for ages every 2 seconds or so. On YouTube this is easily fixed by pausing and waiting for the whole thing to buffer, but Hulu doesn't buffer and still fails.

Then I installed iTunes, but it tells me that the item is not currently available in the Australian Store. Why should it care where I live? Why have Joss and friends not made this available to Australians??

I also found a crappy copy of the first act on YouTube, but the audio was so out of sync that again it was unwatchable.

The third act just went up, which I guess means I have 24 hours to find a way to watch it! Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Rob.

There are plans ot make it avilable in iTunes internationally but it apparently it takes some work to make it happen, but rest assured it will be available to you - hopefully sooner rather than later 🙂

Oh, OK, thanks for the quick reply. Still a pity there's no way to watch it now :-/

By the way, how much does it cost on iTunes?

Thanks,

Rob.

In the US I think it's $1.99 for a single act or $3.99 for all three

Keep in mind that the price for all three will be inevitably raised after July 20th.

Has that been said 'officially' anywhere? It's not listed as an intro price on iTunes, but rather as a 'season pass' which generally indicates that's The Price It Will Be Always At (as long as iTunes has it).

I've already purchased it off iTunes so it won't impact me, but just wondering where the price raise is coming from (or if it's just what you think will happen).
