BBC Free TV on the Web Available

BBC iplayer ( TV on the web) is up and running and you can catch-up on the last 7 days of BBC Television... on your computer
The site has tabs ranging from TV, Radio, Talk etc.

According to Reuters News,

Billed as the biggest change in the way viewers watch television in 40 years, the BBC launched an online service on Friday that allows people to download many programmes from the last week.

Viewers can choose from 400 hours of programmes, between 60 and 70 percent of the total TV output, including hit shows such as "EastEnders, "Doctor Who" and "Planet Earth".

The growth of the Internet, mobiles and hard-drive recorders that save hours of programmes, has destroyed the notion of fixed TV schedules delivered through a TV in the corner of the room.

The service, at, is free, but people will not be allowed to save permanent copies to their computer.

BBC iPlayer Beta is in the final stages of testing and we're now opening it up to even more people around the UK.

Going a lot further to video on the web with some competition from YouTube, BBC's new Web TV is making everyone jump in and love their PC's.
The average time one spends on the internet is gonna increase which is a good sign for online marketers and search engine optimizers.
