According to an article in the Nov 2003 issue of Wired- the BBC plans on digitizing their entire library of material, and offer it all for free. That's right, everything, TV Shows, radio shows, old broadcasts, everything. It doesn't get into details, the format, their distribution network, but it says they intend on offerng this come Summer 2004. Getting the distribution rights for all this material must be a monumental task. I guess I can start cutting back on my BBC DVD purchases now.
