BBC to BitTorrent old shows

In a bid to expand its viewing base and make old programming available to more people, the BBC has decided to release some of its popular older shows over BitTorrent.

The content offered will be available in high-definition and includes classics such as comedy series Red Dwarf and Fawlty Towers, popular sci-fi series Doctor Who, and the more recent hit The League of Gentlemen. Prices for individual episodes have yet to be released, and all content will have DRM enabled to stop unauthorized copying from happening.
