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.
