BBC iMP & DRM

I have been using the BBC iMP pilot for a little while. I am very impressed with it, but it needs more content - the interface and download speeds seem good. I wonder if it uses bittorrent style swarming to deliver the WMV files?

The files are DRM protected to stop you redistributing or watching after 7 days has passed. This has been cracked however; I hope this doesn't give the BBC doubts about the viability of the service as it deserves to hit the mainstream.
