BBC iPlayer to highlight parental controls

Bookmark and Share

Parental controls should be in place on the BBC iPlayer to make sure that children cannot view content that is unsuitable, according to the BBC Trust.

This announcement follows the BBC Trust’s review of the editorial guidelines.

The trust decided that there should be more information that clearly explains the type of content that a programme contains.

At the end of December this year the iPlayer will have been live for two years.

Its growth has been unprecedented and currently it accounts for around five per cent of all UK internet traffic.

The BBC Trust is holding a public consultation with regards to the editorial guidelines, which is open until the 24th December.

Once approved, the new guidelines, in whatever form they take, will come into effect during the summer of 2010.
