When will TV Networks Wake Up?

I was just scanning a list of recent TV torrents and I thought to myself, when the hell at TV networks going to wake up? Downloaded TV is possibly the best thing to happen to TV ever. To serve torrents you need relatively low bandwidth, especially for older shows which people will have downloaded and can seed. Folks running servers in their basement, relying on donations are able to serve up tons of shows, why not NBC? They could even include commercials in them; though people would fast forward there would still be a chance they get watched, and with TiVO stripping commercials already it’s not like the networks aren’t used to it.

No doubt, it’s most of the time the only tv I watch, reruns of Family Guy and Curb Your Enthusiasm. I need to get into this whole torrent thing, I’m going to check out Exeem when it is released. Fitz, did you hear about this?
