That sneaky smoke monster is taking over the world's airwaves!
In an unprecedented move to prevent illegal internet downloads, the epic, 75 hour long finale of Lost will be aired all over the world at the same time!
Broadcasters in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Israel, Turkey, Canada, and now the UK will be airing the smash series' last episode, appropriately titled The End, at the same time as the US' west coast feed, even though it be in the early morning hours of the following Monday!
The UK Channel Sky1's director of programming Stuart Murphy says of the 5am airing:
"We are proud of the fact that at Sky1 HD we have a long tradition of running all of our US shows as close as possible to their US transmission date. With something as hotly anticipated as the Lost finale, it makes sense to show it at exactly the same time as millions across America will see it."
That's certainly going to be an early day for Losties across the globe - but will it be worth it?? We have a feeling that there is going to be much more left unanswered than people realize!!
What do U think?? Will U be tuning in for the Lost finale, no matter what time it's on??
