As a follow on from this related McBlawg post, a number of media outlets/bloggers have reported on the latest development in this area over the last 24 hours.

Essentially, over the next year, the BBC will start to live-cast BBC1 and BBC2 via the web in the next step of their experimentation with releasing content other than on TV.

Here is the release from the BBC, Main BBC channels go live on net

"The live simulcast for both channels will be available from 27 November".


Some interesting and differing views about this already in the blogosphere, such as Got a Computer? You’ll Need To Buy a £139.50 Licence, BBC to transmit live, simulcast style, via iPlayer and BBC channels to start live streaming

Sure will be interesting to see how this pans out. I wonder what Glyn Moody makes of this? He responded here.



And here are the links to BBC ONE and BBC TWO live streaming.
