The BBC Executive today issued the following statement regarding the BBC Trust's approval of the 30-day catch-up window for BBC iPlayer.

People keep telling us they want programmes to be available on BBC iPlayer for longer - so extending availability from seven to 30 days will make iPlayer even better.

New iPlayer already has downloads, better recommendations, HD, live restart, favourites and collections, and extending the catch-up window to 30 days gives people even longer to enjoy their favourite BBC programmes.

We will now set about making this happen with the aim to roll this out from the summer.
