http://syfy.ly/defiance14 <- Doesn't work for me. Would've been great to see the first 14 minutes of the show since the TV show was half of the reason why I bought the game. Now I'm wondering if there'll be a way to watch the show from Finland(for example since I'm from there)
The thing is that I can watch the other videos like Behind the scenes videos on that website.
I'm sorry if there has been a post about this but I just couldn't find it or I'm just blind/wrong words used on search.

Yeah it's geoblocked. Try this:

It's a free peer to peer proxy unblocker for stuff like this.

There are some other threads about the 14 min deal where we've all posted various ways around it and to tell NBC to eat schtako.

heh :), ye. It would honestly suck if people without syfy-network in their country couldn't watch Defiance.

I couldn't see it here, and it's broadcast locally in Canada.

I got it eventually, looked decent for the most part, though I'm a little unsure about the CGI portions, I'm hoping it was just temporary preview footage.

I really liked how the first 3-4 minutes you didn't even know if she spoke English at all, and the duet almost had a mimicry feel to it, rather than comprehension... Good job of keeping an "alien" feel to it if that was the intent.

Living in Japan where I've had to deal with years of tv show blockings, movies delayed 6 months to a year to "debut" in theatres, and so many game industry folks making all sorts of dirty delays and worse(yes Im talking to you EA Bethesda/zenimax and most recently 2k Games). At some point you just have to start being more proactive against it.

hotspot shield is a great VPN utility,

http://www.hotspotshield.com/en

you can connect to it and it'll fool most networks into thinking you're in the USA, you might have to logout/login again once or twice to make sure you get a connection in USA, just install it, run it, then check http://whatismyipaddress.com/ to see where you are. if it's outside the usa, disconnect and reconnect till you are. totally free.

There's a few good stand alone free vpns as well as some applications you can use via firefox or chrome too.

See my signature. Much easier and faster, just a simple plugin to install on firefox or google chrome.

I don't expect the best effects but I liked what I saw in the show, especially after playing the hell out of the beta and being very into it.

Oh, neither do I, effects don't make a show, and frankly, the less effects, the better off it is IMO, since it's generally the high effects budget that kills a sci-fi show. But the shot I remember really stood out as bad, like, pre-babylon 5 CG

I can forgive the CGI for the story. If it does well, I am sure the budget will increase. Just look at Eureka before they decided to end it.

there is literally 1000's of sites that have videos of shows you can watch i mean it literally takes no effort to find a third party site to get the show off of

That's exactly what I thought about and you're right. So many shows with high effect budgets have been canceled rly fast in the past couple of years even(like Terra Nova for example).

the Duet was a June Carter and Johnny Cash song Jackson. The woman playing Irisa I'm sure has learned english growing up around a human.

Actually, after downloading the tool that helps you watch it over here, I was quite impressed with both quality of acting and cgi.
Yet another thing to look forward to! Phew

I'm from the Netherlands, and used an AWS vpn to watch the trailer :) Easy enough if you know what to do, but I think Media Hint would be the easiest solution.

Note: I really liked the trailer.

I agree completely
not only was I surprised by the acting but
the effects look top notch.

Not sure if this is geo locked but you can try itunes, https://itunes.apple.com/us/tv-season/pilot-preview/id616922232?i=617005191

yes but atleast they gave Eureka a proper end. That's all I hope for really. For example Syfy killed off alphas (watched a few episodes but that's it) after 2 seasons and they left it on a cliffhanger ending. I would hate for that to happen to defiance.

tried that too and I would've bought the season from itunes but they haven't added it to my country's itunes :/

That would actually work if Syfy worked with Apple to release the series in itunes for all countries.
