    I couldn't find a messageboard-type link amongst all the twitter-nonsense, so I've posted here:

    Just because a few people can't be bothered to program their video or PVR, so much money that could've been spent on new programming is being wasted on an expensive white elephant.

    sorry, I don't really understand the substance to your comment. Because people can't be bothered to programme there video recorders and PVR's?

    You're clearly just someone who takes a backward approach to technology. I could say, if only people could be bothered to just watch things when they're shown.

    Rubbish. The iPlayer is about making watching tv more enjoyable and accesable. I watch all my bbc content online or using the virgin iplayer catchup service? I don't have the time to watch things when they're on. I have to work evenings, I have other things to do, I'm out socialising. It doesn't mean I don't want to see these shows, just sadly 3 years ago, I'd just miss them. Now though I watch 80% more bbc content, because I can view the programmes I wanted to watch and didn't have time to record, and more so watch shows I didn't even know were on. Many times have I gone into work and someone would say, did you see that buzzcocks episode last night? No, I hadn't but I could go home and just watch it at my own leisure.

    The iplayer is pioneering the future of television both in the living room and online. A flagship product with much potential. This is the future of TV embrace it
