Canterbury Tales Mini-series (2003) help

In 2003 a six-episode mini-series was released to DVD titled the Canterbury Tales. The set is offered through amazon (at a ridiculous price new), but also used. The one person selling used is giving a good enough price, but shipping states it will take till April, at the earliest, to get to my address in America. I would love to pay for a stream service, but cannot tell weather or not IMDb offers this mini-series through streaming. I am writing a comparison paper for university and I have picked this series as my “modern adaptation”. Here is my email if anyone can figure something out for me; otherwise I’ll find a different adaptation.
Fondly,

Are you referring to this title?

The "Available on Amazon" link takes us to a Region 2 DVD, which will not play on standard US players (although most portable dvd players are region-free).
The cheapest offer is for $25+tax&shipping, and will take multiple weeks to arrive.
You'd get a better price buying directly from amazon.co.uk, although the shipping time is about the same (from my experience, and I've ordered from both MusicMagpie and OnlineMusicFilmsGames before, they tend to arrive earlier than predicted, although in today's situation...):
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B00064672U/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&keywords=canterbury+tales&qid=1584135266&sr=1-1

Here are only 4 of the episodes, but they ship from California:

The second episode only appears to be here:

I don't see a streaming option for the whole series out there, but I only used google. I don't know if some other site lists all the Netflix, Hulu, etc titles.

IMDb is primarily a database of titles, and offers a few to stream, but not this title.
