'''ABC ANNOUNCES “LOST” THE FINAL SEASON SWEEPSTAKES'''
“Lost” fans have an opportunity to win an exclusive sneak peek at never-before-seen footage of the season premiere of the sixth and final season of the critically acclaimed hit series. Contestants may enter the sweepstakes at http//lostthefinalseasonsweepstakes.com/.
Upon registration, each contestant must answer six questions about the show, and are then automatically entered to win one of 815 “messages in a bottle.” The 815 winners will receive a “Lost” bottle containing a USB port that resembles character Desmond Hume’s fail-safe key. The key contains a video with a sneak peek at this season’s premiere – which will be the first time anyone will have seen this footage – along with scenes of last season’s finale. All prizes will be delivered on Friday, January 29.

The series will then air in its regular time period – Tuesday nights from 900-1000 p.m., ET – beginning the following week, on February 9.
