A lovely problem to have

A different perspective from Tim Worner, head of programming at Channel 7. In reference to the illegal downloads of TV episodes via P2P, bittorrent etc:

"It's a lovely problem to have," Seven Network programming director Tim Worner said yesterday. "If you get people downloading a show off the internet, you know there's a hunger for it."

For Mr Worner, the desire of a "hardcore" fringe to see the latest episodes has been a boon for the network. "There's no question that when we launched both (shows) they had an enormous buzz in Australia — without a frame showing on air."
