We are planning to watch this; however, our current TV channel guide is indicating TDC (The Discovery Channel) will be broadcasting "Highway Thru Hell" in that time slot... ?? Does anyone have any updates about this? We don't want to miss it!!

I have the same problem. I wonder if it's only Discovery channel in the US?

I looked on the Canadian Discovery Channel's schedule and it isn't listed so I think we'll have to wait and view it online after it's first airing.

I have just spent the last bit of time trying to find it!! I was going to call my provider tomorrow to ask them where it is. I search it and it says it should be there but when I go to the tv grid, not there either. :dungetit

If I can watch it on line or via iTunes so be it then. Thank you mgreenspan for that information.

I am hearing 2 issues regarding the documentary that aired yesterday on the Discovery Channel.

1. Some people are reporting trouble viewing online. Google Chrome server is known to have difficulty loading the video. Internet Explorer seems to work.

2. I have heard on a few FB pages that young children are being upset by the close up image of Max with all the tubes sticking out of him at the 6:20 minute mark.
Please consider screening it before showing it to young or sensitive viewers.
