BBC Goes File-Sharing
Posted on Dec 20, 2006
Have a hankering for “Fawlty Towers” or “Red Dwarf”? You’ll soon be able to watch many British programs free, legally, for the BBC has just announced a deal to make hundreds of episodes of original programming available through Azureus’ file-sharing software.
Hundreds of episodes of BBC programmes will be made available on a file-sharing network for the first time, the corporation has announced.
The move follows a deal between the commercial arm of the organisation, BBC Worldwide, and technology firm Azureus.
The agreement means that users of Azureus’ Zudeo software in the US can download titles such as Little Britain.
