The BBC Executive has issued the following response to the BBC Trust’s approval of BBC Store.

"We're pleased the BBC Trust have approved proposals for BBC Store and recognise the benefits it brings licence fee payers, those who want to own BBC programmes and the creative industry as a whole.

"We know people want to buy DVDs of their favourite BBC shows and BBC Store is a natural progression in a digital age.

"Along with our proposal to extend catch-up on BBC iPlayer from 7 to 30 days, this is great news for fans of BBC shows. We will share more details about next steps at a later date."
