According to this Slashdot article, he pilot episode of Battlestar Gallactica (the remake pilot that is, not from the original series) is available for free via streaming media from the Sci-Fi channel's website.

Personally, I think this is a brilliant move (of course, a download rather than streaming file would have been better). It will increase viewership of the show and probably also sell more DVD sets.

Given that most intellectual property rights holders are so fearful of their product being available from the web, this is really a pretty surprising move. But I bet it will pay off the for the Sci-Fi channel. Hopefully more companies will follow suit if it does prove successful.
