'Lost': DirecTV to air six recap specials starting Dec. 26
Lost comes back Feb. 2 with the season six premiere on ABC. But meanwhile fans can break out the Dharma beer to celebrate six recap specials that will be airing on DirecTV’s 101 Network starting Dec. 26.
The specials, which will air commercial free, aired previously on ABC before past season premieres and finales and haven’t been broadcast since those original ABC airings. But the DirecTV versions will offer interstitial elements not seen on TV before – such as DVD extras (such as unaired scenes) and music videos created with the show.
The 101 Network is available to all of DirecTV’s 18.3 million subscribers.
DirecTV’s descriptions for the specials are after the jump:
