They have a Plan

Rather unusually, the Sci-Fi channel have made the entire first episode of their new Battlestar Galactica
show available online, uncut and without commercials, for free
(Real format, not bad video quality). While the series is still being aired in the US and Australia, the first episode has now been shown in all markets and the Sci-Fi channel may be trying to figure out if making the ep available online could improve ratings.
Their decision may have been aided by the fact that the show was aired in the UK two months before the US, resulting in an awful lot of US fans downloading the show
; normally it's the other way around.
