BBC gets approval for "catch up TV"

BBCThe BBC Trust has approved rollout of a BBC video-on-demand service following a public test of the new iPlayer service.

So what the heck is an iPlayer? Basically it's a service that offers BBC viewers online access to every television episode that has run on the state-regulated network over the past week, commercial-free.

10,500 viewers and organizations offered comments during the test period. I'm guessing most of the comments were positive.

No word yet on when the service will roll out. The BBC press release says it "will be announced in due course," which sounds so much nicer than "it'll be ready when it's ready."
