NRK releases TV series DRM-free on Bittorrent
I’ve been meaning to blog this for a while, but now I have no excuse; NRK even translated their announcement to English just for you international readers. The deal is, NRK, Norway’s biggest television station (and the license-financed one), has released a popular series through Bittorrent as well as broadcasting it in the conventional way. I don’t actually like the series, so won’t bother to download it, but I certainly welcome the spread of new, DRM-free ways of being able to access television content we pay for, and having more legitimate uses of Bittorrent is splendid. Another reason this open distribution is important is simply access: the web TV thing NRK also offers works poorly on my Mac.
I hope other channels will follow suite.
