    This is no ordinary move from the best TV company in the world, so I thought you'd like to know, as it's free for the time being:
    The new deal means that users of the software will be able to download high-quality versions of BBC programmes, including Red Dwarf, Doctor Who and the League of Gentleman. Classic series such as Fawlty Towers will also be available through a BBC channel. The titles will be protected by digital rights management software to prevent the programmes being traded illegally on the internet.

    This Zudeo program seems to be quite good for grabbing HD trailers but this BBC thing isn't getting me too excited. I pay my licence fee, I have no problem morally downloading their content illegally.

    Also, wheredoes it suggest these downloads are going to be free for the time being? All I got from that article regarding costing was:

    No pricing structure for the BBC content on Zudeo has been revealed.

    agreed. i've already paid for it.


    commercial channels should also do this because, the sooner they embed adverts in the videos distributed on the interweb, the sooner they stop losing potential revenue. which they probably aren't because everybody watches the telly show anyway



    and one more thing, bit-torrent uses my bandwidth that i pay for

    ITV isn't doing that well over here due to lost ad revenue. They really need to embrace the internets in the way BBC has.

    Its about time more tv companies started embracing p2p for the boon to their business that it is instead of trying to sue it out of existence. I just wish there were more forward thinkers like the BBC in the world of tv.
