Hi all... there have been a lot of questions as to how the full episodes will be working this year, and so far it hasn't gotten off to a smooth start. The way things work this year are a little different from last year as the CBC has made a few changes on how shows get encoded. Because most shows now go to iTunes as well as online, there is a group that encodes all of the video. With more shows online this year, there has been a bit of a backlog. That's mostly been taken care of, so the new episodes should be going up on the Monday after the show airs at the latest.
As for first season episodes, we're looking at the contract to make sure we still have rights to stream season 1. Things look good, though.
In addition to the new video encoding system, we have new video players as well that now allow full screen viewing and some other additional features. However, it's taking a bit of time to migrate stuff over to the new player. Hopefully by the end of today, we'll have a player up there that will allow you to view both episodes of the new season so far.
Whew... I know that's a lot to take in, but bear with us! We want to make sure Heartland fans (in Canada) can see the show whenever they want.
