You've probably already heard it somewhere else, but the BBC is working on new P2P software which will allow people to download episodes of thier favourite shows up to seven days after it has been broadcast. They'll be testing it with 5,000 people around England (I'm gonna try and get a place!!)
Heres the press release - http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pressrele...ay/16/imp.shtml
The software is going to be called the IMP (Intereactive Media Player) and will use P2P software a bit like Kazaa and Gnuttella.
You will download the episode from the BBC or another member. When the download finishes, a "key" is downloaded from the BBC which unlcks the program. When the key expires after seven days, the program can't be watched, shared or listen to.
