Globe Trekker?

Postby steamer » Mon May 30, 2011 11:17 pm

I've searched the forum ... no hits. Is Globe Trekker available on any of the private channels?
TIA

Unfortunetly not on demand. If you get USTVNOW you'll catch it on their PBS stream sometimes. I love Globe Trekker, and I could recommend that all the Anthony Bordain: No Reservations episodes are on Netflix as well as most of the Micheal Wood miniseries.

thanks for the pointer to Michael Wood and Anthony Bordain.
btw, there are a few Globe Trekker shorts on YouTube.

WARNING: Please be aware that the monthly charge for this channel is $3.99 per month, which I find way overpriced. I used the link above without understanding this and immediately canceled the subscription.

If you change your account to require a PIN before adding channels that charge a fee, you'll avoid accidental purchases.

@trekkeriii and @advocate2, the new TravelDreamer.TV channel is free and features a lot of Globe Trekker short form content. The producers decided to start with clips from their older series, but the channel will be refreshed monthly with newer and newer material. Hope you enjoy them.

I'll also pass along your concern about subscription price. Up until now full length Globe Trekker programs have only been available via DVD or on a pay per view basis. Recently Globe Trekker began a Vimeo channel that charges $2.99 per show, so in that light $3.99 for access to a minimum of 30 ad-free hours seems like a bargain.
