The publicly funded U.K. Film Council has launched a website called FindAnyFilm.com that enables users to find any of some 30,000 movies either in movie theaters, on television, on DVD, on Blu-ray, and on the Internet (for either downloading or streaming). Since the website does not include links to BitTorrent sites, the ArsTechnica website inferred that the Film Council was attempting "to steer Internet users' attention away from P2P and toward legal movie options." It concluded, however, that "the site is actually pretty useful" and has "some handy functionality, at least if you're looking for fairly recent, popular movies." However, the site is aimed at British users, and directs users only towards theaters in the U.K. playing films, British networks televising them, or U.K. websites selling DVDs or downloads.
