BBC Trust let down

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 6:52 am

BBC Trust responded to the fact that iPlayer is not working on platform other than Windows.

Conspiracy theory aside,  and the understanding that the feature in question (“Stacking”) is no more than 15% of the total content available, I still feel that this is a let down by BBC Trust. The reason being “stacking” is probably the crown jewel of iPlayer on joe public’s point-of-view.

Most importantly, it is a step downhill for BBC. I still believe this is exactly like the case where one is forced to buy a particular brand of set-top box to receive broadcast.

Not imposing a deadline for this feature to be made available is another mistake. No deadline equals no incentives to do this.
