Government releases Digital Britain report

The Government has finally published its Digital Britain report by Communications Minister Lord Carter. The 238 page report sets out the Government's "strategic vision" for the next stage of the UK's digital development in order for the country to remain at the "leading edge of the global digital economy". New measures outlined in the report include:

  • Universal UK access to broadband speeds of 2Mbps by 2012.
  • Setting up a fund to invest in next generation broadband using a 50p monthly levy on all fixed telephone lines.
  • A three-year plan to raise digital participation.
  • Legal and regulatory changes to fight digital piracy with an increased role given to Ofcom.
  • A change in Channel 4's remit, with a new role as the 'open new media authority' (instead of 'the open broadcasting authority').
  • Liberalising the mobile spectrum, extending 3G licenses and improving 3G coverage.
  • Holding a consultation to examine funding for local, national and regional news (including the proposal to redirect £130m from the BBC licence fee to pay for ITV regional news).
  • Setting the digital radio switchover date for 2015.
  • Supporting public service content partnerships.

YouTube trials pre-roll ads with British broadcaster content

YouTube has begun to trial pre-roll ads around content from British broadcasting partners, writes ClickZ. The UK trial will include content from Channel 4, BBC Worldwide, Discovery, ITN and National Geographic. Ads will be sold on a CPM basis with revenues shared between both parties. YouTube suggests that ads should be around 15 seconds with the firm imposing an upper limit of 30 seconds. Time caps will ensure appropriate spacing between ads so that they do not feature on every clip.
In further news BBC Worldwide and YouTube have confirmed the continuation of their online partnership which sees BBC content such as Top Gear provided online via a dedicated YouTube channel.

Pete Clifton

Head of Editorial Development, BBC

February 2009

Pete CliftonPete Clifton, 46, is the BBC’s Head of Editorial Development, Multi-Media Journalism - one of the longest job titles in the organisation which puts him in charge of on demand developments across News, Sport and Weather. Before this he was Head of BBC News Interactive, the department responsible for the main News site, plus news to mobile phones, text on TV, interactive TV and outdoor spaces.

Before joining the BBC Pete was a news reporter on the Chronicle and Echo evening newspaper in Northampton, and later their cricket correspondent, covering a wide range of Northamptonshire defeats across the country. He went on to be a sports reporter at the Extel national news agency, before becoming the chief sub on the sports desk at the Press Association.

Away from work Pete likes exchanging dubious stories in bars, wine, playing the piano, attempting bad card tricks, bike riding, walking, golf, entertaining his four children, and occasionally his wife.

What is the next big challenge for the online news industry?
Said on: www.journalism.co.uk Oct 2005
How to make content available on different platforms. Beyond whatever website you are publishing on, how will the news be personalised? In what format? How will users want to receive their news? What about new ways of presenting content? The technical infrastructure? We will have to meet the on-demand age and be extremely nimble so that we can deliver whatever is needed, wherever it is needed

BBC sets out £120m partnership plan

The BBC has suggested a range of possible partnerships with other UK public service broadcasters which include the sharing of its iPlayer technology and the development of a free-to-view broadband internet-enabled digital TV set-top box, writes The Guardian. The proposals were included in the corporation's final submission to Ofcom's public service broadcasting review. Other measures put forward include sharing regional news offices with ITV and scrapping fees for TV listings. Both ITV and BT have responded favourably to the BBC's suggestion to create an internet-based Freeview box and the three organisations are now working in partnership to promote a common industry approach to the delivery of TV services over the internet.
Were the BBC to share its iPlayer service with other broadcasters, it could eventually develop into a general video-on-demand platform. The service has received over 237m viewing requests since its official launch last Christmas and the corporation has recently said that it intends to launch its new version 3 in the first half of 2009.

BBC to broadcast BBC1 and BBC2 live online

British viewers will be able to watch both BBC1 and BBC2 live online through the bbc.co.uk website and the BBC's iPlayer service from the end of November, writes Brand Republic. The corporation already provides BBC News, BBC3, BBC4, CBBC and CBeebies online in real-time. The online live broadcast service is being run as a 12-month trial. Speaking of the launch BBC Vision director Jana Bennett said, "The launch of BBC One and BBC Two online completes our commitment to make our portfolio of channels available to watch on the internet."
iPlayer usage has continued to grow all year, and according to the new "Olswang Convergence Consumer Survey 2008" 24% of consumers now use the service to watch programmes for at least one hour per week. The service is set for another big upgrade following approval from the BBC Trust for upgrades to the iPlayer which will enable users to pre-book programmes up to 7 days before broadcast and download them for viewing.

BBC iPlayer comes to Nokia

The BBC has announced that it is about to launch a version of its iPlayer service for Nokia N96 mobile phones. This will be the first mobile version of the service which will allow users to download and not just stream programmes, unlike the iPhone and iPlayer versions. The BBC now plans to roll the service out to other models of mobile phone.
The Corporation has also been busy on other fronts with the launch of a specific EastEnders YouTube channel featuring clips from the entire 23-year history of the show. The news follows the launch of the BBC's Top Gear channel on YouTube in August.
Finally, results are in from the Olympics with the BBC reporting that it served around 50m sport video streams during the event. Daily averages were around 3m streams/day but the service peaked at 5.5m streams on Tuesday 19th August.
