Daniel described how changes in audience and technology are affecting online video, and how the BBC will respond. For example, on-demand viewing usually peaks at the end of the day, when viewers catch up on shows they missed. But BBC iPlayer is used on tablet devices a the same times of day as live viewing - as if tablets are becoming personal TVs.

He took questions from:

  • Robert Morgan from Magic Lantern on the Wii U
  • Owen Wallis from Less Rain asking if the BBC will release the iPlayer client for others to use
  • Neil Robinson of IPC about how indies could sell the same content to BBC Online and syndicate it to other publishers (eg abroad)
  • Chris Jackson of Metabroadcast on sharing metadata with ITV and C4
  • Andrew Bairds of Testronic about the timescale for this evolution

Daniel Danker is General Manager, Programmes and On Demand.
