Anyone else see this series?

It's on in Canada but don't know if it's on in the US or not.

Interesting to watch. Huge boulders of Jade. in BC (British Columbia).

I have looked for it on satellite and no luck. Discovery channel lists a time but did not say not in USA. So if someone in the USA sees this please list a time and channel. It was suppose to start airing in May.

I looked too. Our cable does not offer it as far as I can tell. DARN

It's had several episodes play already and I tried to see if I could get them online, but was told that it doesn't play in our area.

Looks to be a good show and I am always looking to find out more about jade.

You can't watch it on-line here?:

Click on the video. It plays a couple of commercials and then it starts.

Said 22 minutes.

No, it played both commercials, but then said "not allowed for your geo region".

Maybe, our cable will pick it up if there is enough interest.

Like I said........DARN!

You have to remember we are in two different countries after all.

I watched the whole series a while back when it first aired; a lot of drama with very little content as far as I was concerned. Then the series started to repeat after 5 episodes.
An example; they"ve been selling and mining jade for 25 years but after going into the bush 100+ km. with all their heavy equipment and ooing and awing over all the big jade boulders they are finding, their chinese partners come in and tell them it's not jade so they take a helicopter over to the neighbours claim to find out what jade looks like. LOL

If you use a vpn you can get it to load. I am using tunnel bear it is an extension for chrome browsers. A vpn can be used to change where the servers think you are physically located. A friend of mine introduced me to the concept. They can be helpful in viewing any restricted content based on region or nation. I hope this helps anyone who wanted to watch that doesn't live in Canada.

Yeah, a lot of drama. I guess they had to have a lot of filler to stretch it out to fill a full season of 12 episodes.

Per IMDB, new Season starts on Feb. 23, 2016.

Not sure if that's both in the Canada and the US.

I looked on the Discovery Channel US website and couldn't find anything about "Jade Fever." I guess those south of the border have to go to http://www.discovery.ca/Shows/Jade-Fever and view online.
