First of all, I enjoy the game. I even upgraded it to the deluxe edition after playing for a few hours. Yes I know it has some issues, etc, etc. My problem is with the series and the stupid region blocking of Syfy. Why did you release the game in all countries if we cannot watch the show? How is this the great transmedia revolution? Oh, I see, the great transmedia revolution presupposes we wait a few years for the series to air on local TV channels. IF they decide to buy it. Even the first 14 minutes video is blocked. Why not make some sort of Syfy account where you request my game key and I have acces to the show? I spent 60 euros on it. In my country there is no Syfy channel. At least not on every major cable tv provider. Frankly I havent heard of any platform (digital, cable, satellite) that has Syfy. You are afraid that Defiance users will rip the show? I don't think anyone who has spent money on the game will rip the show. And the show will be ripped anyway, no point of not saying it. Another, not OK, solution is making a season pass for the series... Let us pay for the show if you are so greedy. Anyway, because of this I will not have any remorse in watching the ripped episodes. Yes, you can ban me for saying this.

It has already been confirmed the show will be several hours after the US in Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, several Asian countries and I believe Belgium. Others are also apparently airing it as well.

Well, do research before you sling hate about not watching the TV show. Although I'm not against watching the episodes online I will try and catch my favorite shows on TV, if I can, before resorting to watching them online.

Well, I did. Defiance will not air here (Romania). This is a matter of principle. As I said, I will get the show from outside sources because there is no legal way of seeing it on TV or on Syfy.com.You cant say this is a transmedia product when you don't even let me see the first 14 minutes. (I watched a 300x something thumbnail video of it).

You can only watch amazon video if you are in the US as far as I know. Unless you use VPN/Proxy ofc.

Maybe you should do some research....
There is no way to watch it here too... Not on any TV, and online too. But sure, maybe with change of proxy, but there should be option for those who bought game, to watch episodes online. Even with a postpone for a week or so.

Hi, I found a solution.
If you have Firefox, just install this plugin and no more region blocking :-)
