This just in... The BBC is releasing scores of their back catalogue through Hi-Definition Video Torrents through P2P software available from Zudeo, including Red Dwarf, Doctor Who and The League of Gentlemen (Tip BoingBoing).
Wired links to a Wiki of ISPs and their Torrent policies. The only NZ site listed so far is iBurst, who limit Torrent bandwidth. If you have not heard of iBurst, it's probably because the link on the wiki goes to http://www.iburst.co.za. Their coverage area includes such notable Kiwi towns as Durban, Port Elizabeth and Johannesburg.
Perhaps someone should jump on their IRC channel, correct them and point them in the right direction. I would, but it's been ten years since I last played with IRC and I can't be arsed.
