The bbc are pretty good at accommodating people who wish to be free of
restrictions, at least compared to anyone else in the same industry, if
you open your totem media player you have a direct interface to DRM Free
radio streams (and video streams are possible, just not there yet) and
they have been looking for a nice way to distribute drm free content for
ages, they are not a big fan of restrictions. 

Most of this stuff happens at the R&D department, its just a matter of
the higher ups taking notice hopefully.
