    So are they not doing any streaming options at all? iTunes? Amazon? YouTube?

    I wonder if Ryan would consider doing what other documentary filmmakers have done and have a 1-2 week period where it is streamable for free?
    Even if he could post a link to something like that just in the members only section here it would make it easier for impoverished patients to see it.
    That or streamable for $5.

    So, again it will only be brought by ME patients?
    We don't need to see these films it's everyone else that needs to view them.
    I so hope this gets a larger audience than Voices.

    I don't want to be too critical, but using a professional streaming service like Vimeo would be much more suitable for the ME community than selling DVDs. In that case, we could at least point interested relatives, friends, journalists, scientists and doctors to the streaming service. I also think Ryan would make more money using a streaming service...

    I have a sick Italian that does not speak English; to understand your language and talk to you use google. If there were a user forum that can make a summary of what is said in these DVDs about the ME, I would be very grateful, because if you google it helps me to translate the writing, I do not know how to translate from voice ...
    Thank you in advance

    I'm surprised at the lack of comments on this, I just watched it and found it very powerful and moving. Yeah I mighta cried a little, par for the course lately lol. I'm going to make my family watch it with me tomorrow.

    Wow, what a great job they did. I did sob especially hard in bits.
    Yet I really appreciated the sense of hope in the introduction of some of the new science.
    I hope this gets seen by many and the $$$ start flowing towards those areas of research.
