Channel 4 is trying to take over the world

Campaign says:

'Channel 4 is to become the first UK broadcaster to put its entire back-catalogue online completely free of charge

From July, its 4oD catch-up service will contain more than 4,000 hours of archive content, featuring programmes such as Brass Eye, Teachers and Vic Reeves Big Night Out

The move is a statement of intent from the channel, which is looking to further invest in its online video content, and puts pressure on the BBC's iPlayer, which only archives footage for seven (it's now a month) days.'

Wow, that is incredible! I wonder if The BBC could do that, with Dave and the rest of the UKTV network rerunning old shows, is that possible? If not then Channel 4 is onto a winner. I'm sure there will be a few legal issues, films, sport etc. But surely that means every Film4 production and documentary will be there...
