Friends, Romans, Fl*sters, I'm here tonight to appeal to you all (Ok, I know I'm not all that appealing, but bear with me) In the light of the discovery that the gits at Warner Brothers, have put back the release date of Supernatural season 9 on DVD in the UK. I sat and fummed slightly, I even considered leaping on a plane and chaining myself to a Warner Brothers exectutives desk in protest. To be fair I'd much rather chain myself to Jensen, but I don't want to scare the poor boy too badly.
I decided to start another round of, will somebody please buy the show for the UK! So I contacted NETFLIX UK and this is the conversation.......
Hiya, thanks for contacting Netflix. I am Shanique, to whom do I have the pleasure of chatting with today?
Hi my name is Alison, and I've got a programming question for you.
Sure thing Alison ask away :)
Ok, I know that Neflix in America streams Supernatural, I was wondering if you have any plans to screen the show over here?
Ah thats a pretty good question my friend.. I see that you are located in the UK region right?
Yes that's right,and I'm a huge Supernatural fan.
Okay got it, I can see why Supernatural is a pretty good series and my best friend is so hooked to watching it! We do have every intentions of getting it over to the UK library but the thing is that we havent gotten the license to stream it in the UK as yet but I know a way to push them...
Your friend has very good taste! Well that's kind of good news to hear, I've been trying everything to get the show back on air. So what can I do to help this process along?
What I would love to do for you is to send in a special request to the content team so they can see that you love to watch this show so they can try to negotiate for the licenses to legally add this series on here for you in the UK library.. Sounds like a plan?
Trust me this sounds like a great plan, I'll spread the word to fandom. Be warned we can be a vocal lot when we start.
You are at the right place here! I can send it off for you and if you can get more support that would really help us a lot.
Thank you for telling me this, I'm sure the ladies will be more than happy to start begging.
Just a quick question, how do I contact the content team? I'm a bit of a technophobe, so all help is appreciated.
Ah ha! The same way how you open this chat.. As long as you start a new chat and request Supernatural we can send off the request for you as many times as you like :)
Doh! Yeah told I was a muppet, ok then, it looks like time to mobilize the fan girls. Shanique, you have been very helpful and patient. Now have a great evening.
Haha you are crazy funny.. It was more than a pleasure helping you out
So then ladies here we go again, I would love you all to head over to here
The Netflix help page, scroll down to the start live chat and get begging! I'm not proud I will happily keep doing this, but there are only so many fake beards, and moustaches I can wear.
Please let's see if we can get the boys back here (legally), I know we've tried before, but at least this time the agent I spoke to had actually heard of the show!
Let's bang the drum, blast out the classic rock, shout from the very roof tops.....
WE WANT SUPERNATURAL BACK IN THE UK!!!!!
