Season 2 Online Premiere - Flight of the Conchords (US Only)
Bret and Jemaine are back and finally so is The Flight of the Conchords. Sorry guys, the video only works in the US. We all want the WHOLE world to be able to watch Flight of the Conchords, but to be honest, legally we only have rights to stream the video in the US. But there will be other opportunities internationally to watch it. HBO.com Canada (http://hbocanada.com/) will be streaming the premiere episode of Flight of the Conchords Season 2 in 6 days starting on Tuesday December 23. For other international FOTC fans please check your local providers for additional details regarding when the episode will be broadcast in your area.
About the online video premiere Chris Spadaccini, VP for advertising and promotion at HBO said, “After the success of last season, we knew that online sampling would be the most effective way to energize the ‘Flight of the Conchords’ fan base and generate excitement for season two,” and added , “FunnyorDie has emerged as the go-to destination for great online comedy content, and the decision to partner with them to launch the new season was an easy one.”
HBO has also launched a Flight of the Conchords' LipDub Fansterpiece contest for fans to enter with the chance to be featured in a HBO screening. For more information go to: http://www.flightlipdub.com/
