If you know where to look on streaming sites, Australia actually aired episodes 12 and 13 this week before their hiatus break, and fans got recordings. I might go check it out myself, because I was particularly interested in those episodes.
I actually didn't know the EqD specials were happening, I'll have to look those up!
Although I'll confess that I have seen them, I will also prefer to watch them when they officially air in America. You see, the problem with foreign broadcasts of shows made in America is that, due to the slightly different framerate (I don't remember the exact numbers) at which broadcasting is done in Europe (and apparently Australia too), the result is that an episode broadcasted (and recorded) there has a slightly higher audio pitch (typically very easy to notice in the intro, since that's always going to be in every single episode and thus easy to notice when something's different in such a very familiar part). So basically, if you would rather watch these episodes in ideal quality (and not listen to everyone in slightly higher voices), then you'll just have to wait for the American broadcast, with its proper speed and audio.
Anyway, as for the Equestria Girls specials, the first one was on last Saturday, and the second will be this Saturday, with the third and final one the week after that.
