CBC distributes “Canada’s Next Great Prime Minister” via torrent

by ,

Wow, not only did the CBC
use BitTorrent to distribute the show,
they also encoded it as a 545 MB, 720×486 Xvid AVI (as well as a smaller, 320×240 MPEG4 version for iPods).
I was half-expecting wmv or QuickTime…

And to top it all off, they put the torrent file up on Mininova!
How cool is that?

entertainment, the Net.
