CBC to offer popular TV program as a DRM-free download

Submitted by JohnSullivan on Thu, 2008-03-20 10:05

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) has some excellent news for DRM-free living.

The CBC will be the first major North American broadcaster to release one of its programs without Digital Restrictions Management (DRM). On top of that, they will be using BitTorrent to distribute the program, which is "Canada's Next Great Prime Minister".

Whether or not you are a fan of "reality TV" programs, this is certainly an improvement in our reality. The program will be available for download this coming Monday!

Do stop by their blog and leave a comment to let them know that you support this move, and hope to see more things like it.
