Listen up Yanks, this isn't for you. This is about our Auntie.
You may have read on the grown up news
that the BBC wants to offer it's shows to download for free. To uk license holders
But a stupid indepent "BBC Trust" that doesn't understand the internets complex tube structure have decided that the system needs more limiting DRM, and seems to believe that access is only needed for people running windows (monopoly access, what what).
But what if you want to watch Charlie Brooker on your hip MacBook, or Dr Who on your modded Tardis styled Linux Desktop?
What if you think that as your license fee paid for the fucking show
so you should get unlimited access to the fucking show?
Well The BBC Trust is asking people what they think about DRM and if Linux/Mac support is nessecery in a quick 5minute survey located here:If you want to watch shows on your Mac/Linux machine and/or don't want DRM do this offical survey!
Not a very interesting Thread I admit. But a really big deal for the few of us who don't use Windows.
Also - it's great thread to be British, What, what. Monocles, Pip Pip etc.
