It is also interesting to note that Virgin Radio have been broadcasting
mainly music on four channels in the completely open Ogg Vorbis format for a
long time now - presumably with the blessing of the content providers.
The BBC were developing Ogg Vorbis streaming
quite successfully at one time but then the project appeared to have the rug
pulled out from under it overnight.
