Zudeo and the Beeb

The BBC plans to use the Internet to distribute much of its current and archive material.  At the moment, if you live in the UK, it is possible to watch clips, and sometimes complete episodes of current TV shows via the Internet. Those of us who are outside the UK are usually prevented from accessing the material by Internet filtering.
 
However, apparently Azureus, the makers of a BitTorrent software client, and the Beeb have inked an agreement that may open the way to use BitTorrent for worldwide distribution of BBC material. Worth keeping an eye on, I think. 

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
