Hustle BluRay Release
In October 2005, it was announced that the BBC had sold United States screening rights for the first two series to cable television station AMC. The series is also screened in Spain and Portugal through the People+Arts channel, partially owned by the BBC. The first two series aired back-to-back on CBC in Canada during the summer of 2006. The series has also been shown in other countries such as New Zealand, Australia (both on ABC1 and Foxtel's UKTV), Germany on RTL Crime, Japan, Sweden on SVT, Italy on La7 and Finland on MTV3. Currently series two is aired to the middle east (Mostly KSA, Oman & UAE) by Dubai One, a channel based in Dubai UAE. Virgin Media TV bought the rights to broadcast Hustle on its flagship channel Virgin 1.
What's going on?!
You might be wondering what is going on? Where are all the episodes?
Well, the BBC have been in touch after taking down the videos. As you can imagine, they weren't too impressed with my efforts.
This is absolutely fair enough. It is THEIR content and they have a right to protect it.
I was going to be reuploading the episodes to Dailymotion, but with about 90GB worth of stuff (I have Series 4-8 in HD) it seemed pointless when they would likely pull them all down again. A few are still up on youtube, and one episode is available on dailymotion in HD (on this site too).
If you want the series in HD, there is no legal way of obtaining it. There is (to date, Nov '14) no BluRay or HD download release. The only way is to Torrent it.
But what happens to this site?!
1) I AM KEEPING THE SOUNDTRACK AND THE REST OF THE SITE OPEN. There is still the soundtrack downloads, the games, and information about the show, plus a smattering of episodes remaining.
2) For those who still want to watch, do the decent thing and buy the show. You can get all 48 episodes for less than £20 with free shipping (as of 06/08/14) on Amazon. That really is a steal!
