Stupid question, but does that mean if it starts at 00:01 GMT, it will be showing everywhere at that time, or does it mean it starts at 12:01 a.m. wherever we are, which is what I thought it would be? Because 00:01 GMT Friday the 18th would only be 6:01 p.m. on Thursday the 17th for me. (Told you it was a stupid question.:blush:)

What's there to wonder, I wonder? :D
00:01 GMT Friday the 18th is a precise specification. Unless Amazon doesn't know what GMT means, It'll be available on Thursday for you.

I reiterate, it's a stupid question, but it's a valid one. When the start date was announced, it was November 18th. It may be November 18th in parts of the world that use GMT, but in other parts of the world, that don't use GMT, it's still November 17th. At no time, at least to my knowledge, was it stated that it would be a "global" release. That's where the confusion comes in. At least for me. Simplest thing to do is just wait 4 hours and 45 minutes and see what happens.:)

No part of the world use GMT as it's time zone, GMT is specifically made to be used anywhere.

I think the point that is being made it that in some countries it will be available on the 17th because of the time difference from GMT.

I did not know that. Thanks for the clarification!

That is exactly the point, thank you!

So, everybody else gets it in DEC? Great job Amazon, I'm sure people will be more than happy to patiently wait a few weeks while people from the proper release date countries discuss the new show at lenght online and get everything spoilered. :lol:

Move over GOT, this will be the new most pirated show in history.

But the void thing is, if you do have to wait for Dec, all that you missed will be there waiting for you. Then you will get them when they come out.

It's only going to be a couple episodes of lag anyway (for people outside the first few countries). Then everyone can get it at the same time.
