Lost Series Finale to Air As Simulcast Internationally


In order to save their audiences from getting spoiled online and to prevent rampant illegal downloading of the finale on the Internet, Britain’s Sky 1 — as well as broadcasters in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Israel, Turkey, and Canada — will be making the unprecedented move of airing the Lost series finale as a simulcast with ABC’s broadcast on the U.S. West Coast Sunday evening. U.K. Lost fans who want to watch live will be forced to demonstrate their true commitment to the series, as the broadcast will be beginning there at 5 a.m. Monday morning. [Guardian UK]
