Has there been any word yet of whether this will be shown in other countries or is this only an HBO exclusive for the U.S.  Hopefully they are allowed to make deals with other networks so it can be shown in other parts of the world.  I'm in Canada and HBO Canada never shows anything that HBO US does.  You have to wait like a month later.  Hopefully pay per view will pick it up?

Sometimes HBO specials are released on blu ray... Maybe we will get the documentary and the Paris show released?

I wonder if the Doc will feature the news of Larry Mullen Jnr's father & how it impacted the band rehearsals

This whole thing is really close to the Christmas rush so maybe.

I can see the record label releasing them together (or as separate releases, which would be stupid), but I don't think it will come out until Spring/early Summer 2016.

I'm sure they filmed that... whether it's included is anyone's guess

Maybe.

Also, for people without HBO, in November, make sure to download HBO NOW on your smartphone, Apple TV, etc. and take advantage of the 30-day free trial. The press release says that these specials will be broadcast simultaneously on HBO GO and HBO NOW.
can you get HBO Now even if you don't have HBO on cable?

Yep, it's a separate pay service but it's the same HBO.

it's nice of U2.com to shed light on this HBO special.  They havn't even made an announcement of this yet.  It would be nice to know if other countries will be picking this up as I live in Canada and will like to know if HBO Canada will be showing this (I'm pretty certain that it will not as they never show anything that HBO US does) and also HBO Go and Now is also not available in Canada.  I know that the show and documentary will be on the torrent and file sharing sites but it is still nice to watch it on the same day it is being played.  I hope U2 know that the United States is not the only country in the world.  And again thanks U2.com for continually being the last to report the lastest in U2 news!!

It would be great if they had the doc packaged and ready for Christmas and then you could download the concert via download code.

Personally, I would rather they be together in a DVD/Blu-Ray package so we don't have to buy two separate products.

Score one for Vox:  we needed to get new shingles on our house.  Yesterday, the roofers moved the DirectTV dish, so I had to call and get it realigned.  When I called, the customer service person thanked me for being a customer all these years and that I rarely called with problems.  I asked her since I was a good existing customer and new customers get free HBO/Showtime/etc., if I could get a few free months.  She gave me three free months of HBO.  Great timing!!!

Just don't forget to cancel in time or they'll start charging you!
