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.
