Rewatch BBC, ITV and Channel 4 online in 2008

Yay! (BBC article).

I love it when rival companies forget their differences and jointly produce something.  The BBC, ITV and Channel 4 are planning an on-demand service that lets viewers watch hundreds of programmes over the Internet.  As yet unnamed, the service will include programmes produced by all three broadcasters.  The new aggregator will not be replacing the existing iPlayer, ITV video player or 4oD services.

As a completely unrelated side note, I stumbled across this tune, to be used in the upcoming video game Super Smash Bros. Brawl.  Isn’t it enough to make any Nintendo gamer go all warm and fuzzy with nostalgia?

But I am now legally [!] downloading several episodes of Doctor Who, Charlie Brookers Screenwipe and Eastenders [yes, I’m hanging my head in shame!].

Thanks. 🙂

Glad to have helped! 🙂 And I don’t watch Eastenders, but it’s nothing to be ashamed of!
