Legal TV Downloads
Both the BBC and Channel 5 have reached the conclusion that downloadable TV content is the future. The BBC is currently trialling IMP (Interactive Media Player) allowing users to download programmes within a week of them being aired. Channel 5 has announced the launch of downloadable content for £1.50 per programme. This price seems a bit steep considering that the programme is free to air and that various studies have found that the maximum users are prepared to pay for content is £1. However, it is good to see both organisations working towards 'broadband tv'.
