Yeah, good call. The BBC news channel added that, and Slashdot copied them.

Is the original press release and seems to only say that it will be released for Amazon Prime viewers, not mentioning anything about being a "worldwide release".

I figured I would try it. I signed up for it, Amazon happily took my credit card details and, after they were potentially billing me (yeah I know first month is free), they tell me I can't watch it from my location. Now, I know they have my address on file. I know they can figure out what country my visa card was issued. You would think they would warn me that I cannot view their apparently 'world wide' service from Australia.
