Canadian Broadcaster To Distribute Show Over BitTorrent

Canada.jpgIt’s official: BitTorrent isn’t just for pirates anymore. Canadian broadcaster CBC is planning to use the peer to peer technology to distribute a DRM-free episode of “Canada’s Next Great Prime Minister” to the world. It’s very much an experiment on the part of CBC — it only intends to release one episode of one show for now, but hey, you have to start somewhere. [Ars Technica]
