BBC1 will be web-streamed live through BBC.co.uk as of next year, according to the broadcaster’s director general Mark Thompson.
Hoping to capitalise on its impressive iPlayer service the Beeb has decided why not go back to the 90's and try something they know doesn't work.
People simply do not want to watch TV in a linear sense anymore, the only content thats worth streaming are sports events, I there isn't much chance of that happening soon.
The BBC needs to work on iPlayer and getting the BBC online identity sorted out, its abit of a mish mash at the moment. With iPlayer the BBC struck gold and unless they keep pushing they will become a follower not a leader. I think the best idea would be to can live streaming, and just make iPlayer better they would be forgiven for that.
