You can buy the DVD with the season series. Other than that, I don't know of any legal websites available to NZ'ers to download the episodes from.

Dont know if this is of any help - but You can watch on line (http://www.cucirca.com/2007/05/06/watch-prison-break-online/) - they appear to have an approx 6.30-7 Min preview from the previous episode - then have 6 more of what looks like the rest of the program ?? They stream Via the site - just tried Season 4 Episode 15 - and it stream nice, no lag - dont watch the program so dont know if its complete , upto date or not - hit the full screen and watch. Example (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/PB.jpg) -plays for 43 minutes ??? The controls do disappear - and full screen is not to bad Resized to show (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/PB2.bmp) << warning file is about 1.8Mb picture

TV3 does have an ondemand portion to their web site as well...but whether they have the overseas programs on it I don't know.

It doesn't look like it - http://www.tv3.co.nz/TVOnDemand/tabid/848/Default.aspx

Your only options in this PITA country of ours is either illegal download, make a US site think you live there (dubious legality), buy the series. Or see if you have a mate with a pvr etc that can put it on usb key/dvd for you.
