iPlayer vs TVNZ ondemand

BBC launches free internet TV

Billed as the biggest change in the way viewers watch television in 40 years, the BBC has launched an online service that allows people to download many programmes from the last week.

The service, at www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer, is free, but people will not be allowed to save permanent copies to their computer. It could take 30 minutes to download an hour-long show.

Programmes will be automatically deleted after viewing or after 30 days. Copyright protection software will prevent the copying of shows.

Compared to TVNZ ondemand, this service is great! Don’t get me wrong, ondemand is great but I think BBC’s way is much fairer to those who want to watch what they want, when they want.
