BBC To Upload Programming

BBC Director Mark Thompson says the public broadcaster will soon make it possible for users to download TV and radio programs. “The device, with a working title of MyBBCPlayer, would let web users download original radio and TV programming from its website for as long as seven days after it was broadcast. He disclosed that the BBC intended to introduce the measure because it had to extend the means by which the public could reach its programmes if it was to retain the licence fee.
