NRK’s broadcasts coming DRM-free to BitTorrent

Good news for Norwegians and Norsk-learners. My own NRK scraper will die a fiery death as Norwegian national broadcaster NRK puts their broadcasts on their own BitTorrent tracker, using Pirate Bay technology.

They even have a Twitter account and an RSS feed of broadcasts. Plus, they recommend Miro. I couldn’t have done it better.

Epic wins for the internets.

Update: And here’s an interview with Pirate Bay’s Peter Sunde, as broadcast on NRK.

    A competitive company! Good lord. Imagine that.
