    First post - long time reader and lurker.

    Can anyone provide any insight into when/whether Red Dwarf XI is going to come to Australia? Very frustrating wait ....

    I'm assuming that ABC will get the new Red Dwarf eventually, as to when I have no idea since I haven't seen anything mentioned anywhere. I've been keeping an eye out. Cannot remember how long it took for ABC to get X from it airing in Australia after the UK.

    Would it not be easier and quicker to just buy the dvd?

    DVD is a different region UK I believe is region 2, Australia is region 4. Bluray on the other hand is is the same region as Australia, region B. I've got the blurays on order from Amazon.co.uk and should be here mid Janurary. Still going to watch it on ABC when they get the episdoes and purchase the Aussie release of the DVDs to support local so they keep getting Red Dwarf when new stuff comes out.

    The DVDs won't work here (without hacking the DVD player) but I hadn't realised that the Bluray version is OK. As noted by FeeBee, I would also prefer to support it locally to ensure that we subsequently get Season 12 without this ridiculous delay, but I may have no option.

    This type of thing is why Australia is evidently home to more 'pirates' per capita than any other country. People are generally happy to buy content legally, but when it simply isn't available (for no clear reason), I can understand why some go that way. I guess I'll keep waiting - it'll come out on UKTV eventually ....

    Your best bet is to keep your eye on the site's News Section. Yes Seb?

    Also found at the top left hand side of this forum's pages. :-)

    Where it says News ;-)

    I enjoyed the first episode. Had me laughing right from the first joke. My mum didn't want the new episodes and not sure about anyone else I told. Won't talk to them until I am back at work on Monday.

    Just thought I would resurrect this old thread with essentially the same query - any idea of when Red Dwarf XII is scheduled for Australia?

    No idea, I am assuming March but keeping an eye on ABC hoping that I am wrong an that it's earlier.

    Best way how to find out these informations is to contact the TV.

    They actually have a date now
    http://www.abc.net.au/tv/programs/red-dwarf/
    Tuesday 26 Dec 2017, 9:18pm AEDT on ABC2 (or comedy because it looks like they have renamed channels)

    I will be rewatching Red Dwarf XII since I already have the bluray but want to support ABC so we keep getting it.

    9:18? Bit random or is that common in Aus?
