BBC iPlayer on course for Summer release

February 19th, 2007 · 1 Comment

The BBC will launch its iPlayer online service this Summer. The Corporation will offer a seven day catch-up service for every BBC TV channel, plus a live feed of the its TV and radio channels, and an  archive of  radio programming and podcasts.
Users will be able to store downloaded TV episodes for up to 30 days on their PCs. Audio downloads will have no time restrictions on storage. Downloads will use the peer-2-peer Kontiki software first employed for Sky’s broadband service.

    Oh no, that means it’s likely to be just as slow and cumbersome as both Sky by Broadband and 4oD, both of which I’ve installed and then removed because they were just too slow to be useable. I do wish they’d just have some sort of ‘Lite’ interface option for these services.
