Free Dr. Who!: BBC to offer free downloading

kmhess writes “I saw my first Dr. Who episode last week, and it was excellent. I’m still irritated they refuse to show it in the US.

I just read on yahoo news that the BBC will let programs be downloaded. The special player would let Web users download original BBC radio and television programming from its Web site for as long as seven days after it originally aired.
Also not disclosed was whether the BBC would charge users a fee for the downloads or how it would protect the digital rights of such programming.

I guess I won’t hold my breath, but it sounds promising.”
