BBC buys Heroes

The BBC now has exclusive rights for Heroes on terrestrial and multichannel from the second series onwards.

Under the deal, the BBC will have the option of buying all content beyond series two at a pre-agreed price.

Cool. A good SF show on terrestrial TV first. Until Sky offer a gazillion pounds to buy it.


That's fantastic! No more fast-forwarding through the ad-breaks on Sky+, missing the start of the next segment, rewinding, re-watching the last ad, getting bored, fast-forwarding again...

I look forwards to watching the next series in HD too. Now if only the BBC could stump up the cash for Lost series 4...
