"Bands of Brothers" Will Get "The Pacific"

American Forces Network, the television outlet serving military personnel overseas will be airing The Pacific for free starting this weekend, though at a late hour because of its mature content.

One of HBO's conditions for supplying the highly-anticipated, 10-part program was that it'd air unedited which means that it'll be broadcast at 11pm in Europe and the Pacific, while because they can't adjust for timezones, the show won't be on until 1AM in the Middle East.

As part of the build-up in advance of the series, Stars & Stripes has a six minute video from an event at the World War II Memorial, along with a twenty-six picture slideshow.
