BBC to put TV programs online!

Can you imagine the coronaries that Cable company operators here in the United States would have if producers of programming said they were going to allow their programs to be viewed online at exactly the same time they are being played through traditional means.

I can predict a day in the near future where cable and satellite providers will no longer control our television programming. My wife can already watch a handful of popular Japanese TV shows that are aired only in Japan for free on our media center, versus paying our cable company $19.95 per month for 5 channels of Japanese programming that is garbage.

I think this is a huge move by the BBC and should make some people sit up and take notice. [BBC]
