    Give me DRM free "Rick Mercer Report" and "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" and I might be more interested. It's a good step forward anyway. Good job CBC!

    could customers of Rogers Internet not protest the filtering of bit torrent traffic as they are trying to legally grab a copy of their favorite canadian tv show?:p

    Have they included embedded advertising? (not ad breaks) If they have that's great because it makes free bit-torrent distribution viable.

    I've posted this before but it's a very good point the guy makes - Piracy is Good?

    Way to go, CBC! Hopefully other content providers will follow their lead into a brighter tomorrow!
