Everyone knows you can find torrents
from plenty of TV shows on the internet, but it's usually not seeded by the broadcaster. Taking a page out of mariposaHD
's book, the CBC
is putting a "high quality" DRM-free copy of Canada's Next Great Prime Minister online (no wonder they think HDTV has no business model
) after it airs March 23. No idea yet if this is a one time thing or the start of a trend, but we applaud the Canadians for one-upping Her podcasting Majesty
in getting with digital distribution. Hopefully, the reasoning behind
selecting political leaders
soliciting ideas for a better country via a reality TV show (and why the U.S. isn't), will also be answered.
