This news comes as a new chairperson takes over the helm at Freesat and at a time when the BBC is making plans for multi channel partnerships.
Digital TV has changed since its early days and its development has been mainly pushed by the demands of the customer, rather than through routine investment to make the service better.
Two services that consumers have shown to be in demand are the BBC’s iPlayer and YouTube.
These two services have proved that anything from short home made video clips up to full length films are what consumers want, and they want to watch these at a time of their own choosing, not when the schedule demands.
Because of this, the next evolution for Freesat and Freeview will be the addition of these two services.
