BBC adds series stacking to iPlayer

The BBC is to expand the selection of episodes available to watch through its iPlayer service with the implementing of series staking in September, writes Brand Republic. Individual episodes of TV programmes will no longer be removed after seven days but will remain accessible for the entire duration of the series. Viewers will now be able to start watching a series half-way through its broadcast schedule and still have time to catch up.
In another move to widen access to the BBC's vast archive BBC Worldwide intends to launch an ad-supported online music service. The service will feature both audio and video content from the BBC's radio and television archives and content will be available as free streams or paid downloads.

The BBC is to broadcast its flagship channel BBC One online as a live video stream, writes Brand Republic. This is the first time that the corporation has broadcast one of its original analogue channels via the internet. The BBC announced the plan in its latest Statements of Programme Policy and it intends for the move to take place later this year.

Viewers watch 3.5m BBC programmes with iPlayer in two weeks

Online viewers watched 3.5m programmes using the BBC's iPlayer service in the first two weeks following its relaunch on Christmas Day, writes Brand Republic. The iPlayer site attracted over 1m visitors during the period with an average of 250,000 programmes being downloaded or streamed each day. Figures from Hitwise show that traffic to the iPlayer site grew 14-fold between the beginning of December and the beginning of January. The site also entered the ranks of 100 most visited websites in the UK, peaking at number 62.

According to The Telegraph the BBC is also in negotiation with ISPs to cache copies of the most popular programmes directly at local exchanges. ISPs have voiced concerns about the amount of bandwidth iPlayer traffic could consume. "Project Cheetah" will see the BBC place around 200 servers at various points on the BT network, reducing the amount of traffic from the BBC's central servers.

BBC signs YouTube deal

The BBC is to launch three branded video channels on the online video sharing site YouTube, writes Brand Republic. A "public service" BBC channel will have clips of new programs and specially comissioned online-only content designed to tie-in with popular shows like "Dr. Who" and "Life on Mars". The channel will aim to raise awareness of current programming and drive traffic back to the BBC's website. The BBC Worldwide channel will provide archive clips from entertainment shows and factual programmes (such as wildlife prorammes). This channel will include some advertising. Finally, the BBC News channel will offer around 30 news clips each day. It will be fully funded from advertising but will not be available to users from the UK.

The BBC has also announced a twelve-month 3G mobile trial in partnership with 3 UK, Orand and Vodafone. The service will include live streaming of BBC One, BBC News 24, BBC3 and up to 8 radio stations.
