    I think they need to consult with some of the groups that release unathorized copies of tv shows. The standard for an hour-long show is 350MB and they usually look better than this one at 545MB. I noticed that this one seems to have some interlacing problems (you can see the image tearing) and pixelation. For a first try though, good job. And I love the idea of a public broadcaster serving the public.

    God I miss the CBC. Now I wish CTV would do this with Project Runway Canada.

    In Canada, torrents come in bags C:

    Thank god for anyone who’s open to torrenting, especially uploaders.

    I found it highly amusing that the first legal torrent from a North American broadcaster was hosted on Mininova and tracked by the Pirate bay.

    How’s this working with Bell Canada dropping torrent packets?

    only Conservative packets have assured delivery

    Oh, and no matter where you live, go grab the torrent here

    The more people download it, the more likely we are to see more experiments. The mobile version is only 280 MB, so it’s hardly going to break your download caps. Heck, you might even like it.

    Hmn. Doesn’t seem to work with Bell Canada as my ISP…
