The game was running concurrently in the US, Australia, and the UK; since the UK broadcasts of Season 2 began on the same day as the game, it was unlikely that any major secrets about the Island would be revealed. The Lost Experience lasted for the whole of the Season 2 UK broadcasts, finishing the day before the UK premiere of "Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1" was broadcast.

  • However, because the show has been referenced by in-game characters there could be clues to the game included in the show (but presumably only up to the most recent episode shown in the UK).
  • The Lost Experience was initially hyped as offering a parallel story to Lost, so TV fans would not need to play the game to follow the story. However as TLE has progressed, it has revealed key information about the backstory of DHARMA, Alvar Hanso, and the island. It is unclear how Season 3 will incorporate this information.
    • Though it seems a lot of this information is still secondary to the show.
