United States Release Dates
Although it was aired in United Kingdom late 2016, the six-part series of Planet Earth II will be shown in United States, every Saturday starting Feb. 18 on BBC America. Filmed in Ultra High Definition (4K). It's worth buying the series especially it was narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
Magnificent but different from broadcast
Why is the iTunes version different from the version broadcast on BBC America? The introductions were different (Attenborough in a ballon on TV and with a studio recorded version of the intro language on iTunes and with slightly different video). Both are great, but I fear that I'll miss something if I watch the iTunes version.
So, it aired two weeks ago... where are my episodes?
