Televised Revolution – Episode 239
We set our focus this week on subscription TV services. After examining the news this week that Foxtel may be seeking to strike deals with movie studios directly rather than by going through longtime providers The Movie Network and Premium Movie Partnership, we set our focus on one of the newer online TV distribution platforms: The BBC iPlayer.
Dan took a look at the iPlayer service in November last year, but was enthused at the chance to have a chat with John Beohm, the Programme Manager for the BBC iPlayer. John was good enough to give us some of his time this week as we discuss the iPlayer platform, programme selection decisions, and the relationship that exists between Programmer and Viewer on a platform such as this.
