BBC TV channels to be put on net | BBC NEWS
"The BBC's TV channels will be made available on the internet, BBC Director General Mark Thompson has confirmed.
He announced plans for the MyBBCPlayer - which will allow viewers to legally download seven days of programmes - at the Edinburgh Television Festival.
He said he hoped the service would launch next year."
"Proposals to make clips available on mobile phones are also being speeded up, director of TV Jana Bennett said last week.
The BBC received a "wake-up call" about the demand for new technology in March when the first episode of the new Doctor Who was leaked on to the internet, she said."
Ironic really. The guy suspected of leaking the episode?
