BBC Earth announced they had picked up Dynasties from BBC through pre-sales. It will be premiered at a trade show on Oct. 15 where it will go on general sale to broadcasters around the world. (Source) I don't know if they have an exact date when it will be available and when Blue Ant will schedule it.
