According to this entertainment news article
, Channel 7 "will screen an episode on December 2 and another on December 3 - just hours after it airs in the USA." What does this process look like?

How does Channel 7 get their hands on the latest, newly aired episode from the US, and what physical or digital format is it in? Is there a Bittorrent-type of file sharing site that only television stations have access to? Is an old school film reel or a DVD sent over on a plane? Is it somehow sent via satellite and someone in the foreign television station has to hit the record button on the VCR?
