Big Mommah of all government owned non-commercial broadcasting companies, UK's BBC, is planning to bring parts of its massive video selection available through Internet for free.
The corporation won't bring its massive entertainment collection to Net however, because its DVD sales figures are just too lucrative to justify such a move, but it has plans to bring other shows, documentaries, etc available to the public. The schedule and pretty much all the technical details are still unknown.
