And also in countries where they may only be offered an edited 'international' version and then the local network decides, for whatever reason (more commercial vs TV show time?), to chop out even more bits. Besides the frequent interruptions (e.g. Ch.9 Australia) making any FTA TV show difficult to watch live, the several months long delay in broadcasting non-mainstream shows, means TG fans in many countries have given up and found another source.This makes me really sad. Especially for people in countries where these shows don't even air.
IMHO, better safe than sorry. I understand why Viper did it - fighting a DMCA takedown, even an unjust one, costs money and involves lawyers.wait. why are fifth gear episodes also pulled down? the DMCA Notice did not mention fifth gear, just TG UK, AUS, and USA. Please bring fifth gear links back up !
