    I am hoping for two things:

    That the original will be aired in the US, in it's entirety narrated by Attenborough
    And that we'll be able to watch it in 4K, at least through DirecTV.

    Both of those things need to happen!

    Good news, this will air on BBC America starting January 28. This means it'll be the original Attenborough version.

    Still hoping it's shown in 4K on DirecTV, but the BBCA part is to me the most important.

    It's postponed until February 18th. Any word yet if DIRECTV will show it in 4K? If they do, it will be on channel 104, right?

    It's showing up on the 4K channel for this Saturday. It's not up yet for next Saturday, but that doesn't mean anything, the guide data is incomplete.

    I got this as part of my daily Engadget Newsletter:

    The original series is currently playing on BBCA in what appears to be an all-day marathon today.

    Not a big fan of Attenborough's cartoon voice. It gets old real fast for me.

    Sir David Attenborough's voice is fine with me, particularly since he is a well-established naturalist and an avid environmentalist. His narration of the original and excellent 'Planet Earth' (PE) was well-suited to the subject matter as I'm sure it will be for the sequel (PEII). (BTW, if you are prone to complain about narrators' voices, try watching the original PE with the Sigourney Weaver narration -- like fingernails on a chalkboard.)

    He's okay, just wears on me after awhile. I would prefer his voice on shows like Winnie the Pooh.
    I'm partial to the smooth sounding narrators found in Ken Burns documentaries. But it should be good no matter being 4K.

    I'm just glad that we're getting access to the original uncut version unlike the original on Discovery.
