Zattoo to offer users more channels


by David Allen

The peer to peer application which is the base of Zattoo has been in the news for all of the wrong reasons recently; many channels have complained and in fact consulted legal teams because their content is being shown at the same time that it is being broadcast.

But despite the complaints, Zattoo are also planning to add BBC1, BBC2 and ITV to their line up, that already includes Channel 4, Five, BBC 3 and BBC 4.

Because they stream the channels through the peer to peer application this is causing problems. But Zattoo are insisting the system is totally legal and have cleared the rights for all of the programmes that are shown.

Zattoo insist that because they broadcast the programmes they do not have to agree rights with any of the content producers.

This is a very delicate area and will see the BBC looking into their policies in linear internet syndication.
