    Australia is slower than NZ since TAR is on the loser channel. Ch 7 is the Olympics channel which is why of the delay however we got TAR 4 quite late as well so thats no excuse.
    Other than Survivor and just recently American Idol 3 (which are on other channels) no other American reality shows are treated with respect in Australia. Apprentice 1 and the Joe Schmo Show 1 has just recently finished here. Thats how slow we are.


    Below is a link to an article about aussie TAR fans complaining about the delay of TAR 5 and the excuses Ch 7 are using for not showing it.

    Just curious. Are there cable networks in Australia or New Zealand that show American programs before the regular broadcast networks?

    I don't have Pay TV so I can't really answer that question. However I believe Australian free-to-air channels gets the episodes first before Pay TV. I can't answer for New Zealand.

    We got repeats of TAR 1 way before Pay TV decided to show them.

    However free to air channels don't show everything thats on Pay TV. I know Pay TV has just recently got Boy meets Boy just now which never came on a free to air channel. :rolleyes

    As for TAR 5 - another rumor is that it may be on 14th of October, so still on a Thursday night. Ch 7 has started advertising TAR 5 as 'coming soon'.
