Great news from the BBC

iPlayer logo They’ve announced that the iPlayer will soon allow you to download programmes to your iPod. Yay! I wonder if there will be some sort of ‘best before’ DRM code that makes them self destruct after 7 days. Here’s what The Guardian has to say about it:

iPhone and iPod Touch owners will be able to access iPlayer content within the next few weeks. This will be the first time the broadband TV service has been available beyond PC and Mac computers.

The Apple deal is one of a number of initiatives designed to boost the popularity of the iPlayer service, including the introduction of new features such as programme recommendations, which emulate the strengths of the online shopping service Amazon.

You can read the rest of their iPlayer article here.

IP broadcasting is off to a great start this year. I can’t wait to see what other developments the future holds.

Thanks to Buzz for the heads up.
