The BBC iPlayer will be launching on the Virgin Media cable platform soon – expanding the current selection of around 50 hours worth of programmes up to 500 hours, a new Virgin Media presentation says. The iPlayer on Virgin Media will be similar to the BBC’s Internet version of the iPlayer, and will extend the current Video On Demand BBC offerings, and is rumoured to be able to host every single programme shown on every BBC channel for 7 days after it’s first shown on the channels. The screengrab in that presentation of the new iPlayer service also suggests BBC Radio will be available as well (“Listen Again” like the BBC website, perhaps?). All sounds very interesting – should be great.
