The BBC plans to make hundreds of episodes of its popular British television programs available on a file-sharing network for the first time. The move follows a deal between the commercial arm of the company, BBC Worldwide, and the Java-based BitTorrent client technological firm, Azureus. Until now however most of this content traveling through P2P networks was illegal.
BBC wants to change that and make it viable for people from around the world have access to their programming. This means that users will be able to download popular shows like: Little Britain, Red Dwarf, League of Gentleman, Doctor Who and Fawlty Towers no matter where they are for a small fee. What’s most impressive is that the BBC isn’t going to just dip its toes into this project but is instead going to offer hundreds of shows from the very start.
This gives the service a much better chance of taking off and becoming successful. Previously, BBC titles found on peer-to-peer file-sharing networks were bootleg copies. But now the file sharing means that users of Azureus` Zudeo software in the United States can legally download titles
