Obviously, this is a further attempt to curb piracy, but I also think that it will make people happier at UK networks. Sky One was the first to do this with Lost & 24 showing just a few days after airing in the UK.
Of course, there are still people that will download the shows. But for many, Heroes isn’t worth downloading and the wait of a few days is not a big deal; especially if you are able to watch it on BBC HD.
