    Why are download links not available against all programmes in iPlayer? Where a programme is available for viewing in iPlayer after broadcast, you click on the programme name in the directory and are taken to a page with a video view of the programme - and sometimes, but not always you get a download link underneath the programme on the right. My internet connection is often not fast enough to watch the programme "live" on a stream basis, so I need to download, but I don't understand why only some programmes have the download link.
    Latest example (and there are plenty) is the current episode of Damages Series 3 (episode 8)

    The makers of Damages don't licence the rights to offer It for download I'm afraid, so it's streaming only and missing from some devices. Quite a few US made series and most sport are the same way.
