Canada Gets It

My favorite source for all things torrent, TorrentFreak, has word on the CBC’s (Canadian Broadcasting Corp.) plans for a torrent-based release:

“CBC, Canada’s public television broadcaster has plans to release the upcoming TV-show “Canada’s Next Great Prime Minister” for free via BitTorrent. This makes CBC the first North-American broadcaster to embrace the popular filesharing protocol.”

This is a pretty big step, even when you consider, according to some comments on the TF site, that the show in question is not considered a big draw.
