If you’re a Sassenach living in Australia, you were likely disappointed to hear that the Outlander Season 4 premiere wouldn’t air until Nov. 6. There’s some excellent news for all.

Outlander Season 4 premiere in the United States. One thing I never noticed was that Australia got a premiere date. Nov. 6 was when the season was supposed to air for the first time.

Understandably, many fans were disappointed. That would mean waiting longer to get on social media to avoid the spoilers North American fans would share. Well, there’s some excellent news because the Australian premiere date has been moved.

Because of the fan reaction, Foxtel, the network that airs the series, decided to push up the premiere date. You can now watch Outlander Season 4 from Nov. 5.

Wait, isn’t that still later than the North American premiere date? Well, yes and no. Remember the time difference! The episode will air at 3 p.m. local time in Australia, which is roughly the exact same time it will air in the United States on Nov. 4 thanks to that major time difference.

Just to give you an idea, I’m on Eastern time and am 16 hours behind a client I have in Australia. For those on Pacific time, that’s a 19-hour time difference! The Australian airing is at the same time as the Pacific time airing (if my maths are right).

What does this mean? Well, it shows that Foxtel is listening to you as fans. The network didn’t need to change the scheduling around if it didn’t work but wanted to give Sassenachs exactly what they were asking for. This shows that Foxtel appreciates you as fans and wants to make this show a success in Australia.
