Great news for Outlander fans in New Zealand and in The Netherlands!  Television stations in both countries will air Outlander.

In New Zealand, Lightbox will be airing the show.  No premiere date has been announced.

In a major coup for the service and for legions of obsessed fans, Lightbox has also secured Outlander, a new fantasy drama based on Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling novels and starring Caitriona Balfe.

Maria Mahony, head of programming and local content, says, “We are absolutely thrilled to have Outlander on Lightbox. It’s a captivating show. New Zealand’s passionate Outlander clan has been very vocal in its excitement, and we’re confident other viewers will become converts too.”

For Dutch fans, HBO NL will air Outlander and the series will start its run on August 11th.  This is especially nice since Lotte Verbeek is Dutch.

    This is bad Lightbox isn’t a channel, it’s and internet based subscription service. It hasn’t even open yet. It should have come to Soho. Now I can’t even watch Outlander on my TV, I will have to pay extra for lightbox and watch it on my computer screen or iPad.

      @Katy McTeigue . I’m in New Zealand and I have just watched 3rd episode on my computer without paying. Try this sight as I watch a lot on here http://watchtvlinks.sx/

    Is there any word on if it will be on free to air tv in New Zealand? As Katy says Lightbox is a broadband streaming channel, if I can’t afford Sky I sure as hell can’t afford a monthly internet channel sub.
