BBC steps closer to offering Internet TV

It looks as though the BBC will continue their listen again radio service, where you can hear radio shows up to 7 days after they air, with an on demand Internet TV service for ALL BBC TV shows. A select number of shows have been available online for a while now, but this promises to be much, much bigger.

Channel 4 (also in the UK) tried something similar but a lot of their content was not free, so you would have been just as well to record the show yourself, BBC however say that their content will be free although you will only be able to download a show up to 7 days after it has been on and then only store it on your HDD for up to 30days.

They are calling it iPlayer and a final decision on the service will be made before May 2nd 2007 after public consultation.
