BBC Introduces The iPlayer: Free TV On The Net

Brits have totally lucked out this week because the BBC has just launched the "on-demand" iPlayer, which will enable viewers to choose from 400 hours of programs, including hit shows such as "EastEnders," "Doctor Who" and "Planet Earth."

According to The New York Times the player is free and takes about thirty minutes to download an hour-long show. Programs cannot be saved permanently and will be automatically deleted after viewing or after thirty days.

Unfortunately, it will only be available to people living in Britain who have computers that run on the Microsoft XP operating system. Somewhat like the streaming service ABC now offers, but with much more variety, easier to use, and a cleaner sleek interface.
