Freed from the legal problems that beset series one, the Underbelly prequel has already become the highest-rating drama in people-meter-ranking TV history — but Nine is apparently keen to get even more people watching the show, and is offering free downloads of the episodes the same evening they air. While the episodes are DRM-protected (you’ll need a special codec for your preferred media player), can’t be downloaded outside Australia and will expire when the series finishes, it’s still a step forward a the TV industry which often acts like sharing program information is a capital crime.
