Some years ago I hacked together a script to download tv shows from DR, called drnuget - because I don't want to install Adobe's Flash plugin on my computer, and because Gnash does not work with dr.dk.
Alas, a while back, DR changed their website and drnuget stopped working. This, of course in blatant, direct violation of the Public Service contract. Oh well.
But now I've learned that youtube-dl (no longer that precisely named) can download programs from dr.dk, so we can once again download the programs we are forced to pay for - nice!
