Doctor Who Season 6 Part 2: Where to Watch, Download or Stream

August 24, 2011

Some of our questions were answered with last June’s Doctor Who half-season finale. Now, we at least know who River Song is and that the Doctor needs to chill out a bit. The premiere episode of the second half of season six will be broadcast on BBC America this Saturday, August 27th at 8 PM Eastern / 9 PM Central.

Unfortunately, the HD version of BBC America is not available yet on FIOS. So, the Hub will be watching via Amazon Instant Video. For those of you who previously purchased Amazon’s “TV Pass” for the entire season, there’s nothing to do. As new episodes are posted, they will become available automatically (and your credit card charged). Typically, sans any technical problems, the episode is available the morning after the broadcast on Amazon as well as iTunes.

To get ready for the premiere episode, Let’s Kill Hitler, here’s a link to the free prequel at Amazon. You can also watch the preview trailer for the season here.

Update: The season pass is also available on iTunes for purchase at same price as Amazon: $16.99 for the season ($2.84 per episode). Note, there are only six episodes in the second part of the season.

Update: It’s available on Amazon and iTunes. Enjoy!

Update: Amazon is offering $5 for anyone who tweets about Amazon Instant.

Update: VUDU has joined the mix too and they are also offering Season 6 Part 2.

    I wanted to watch the "new" episodes (Season 6, part 2) but they are
    only available for sale at $2.99, there is no rental option. I rented
    all the episodes of Part 1, so I'm wondering why on earth I can't rent
    episodes from Part 2?

    iTunes recently removed the ability to rent TV episodes. Apple said most customers preferred buying them outright. I don't think Amazon had an option to rent TV episodes before this.
