BBC leaving top shows on iPlayer for longer

If, like me, you find yourself settling down to catch up on last week’s Summer Heights High, only to find it’s disappeared thanks to Auntie’s strict guidelines on leaving shows online, news that the Beeb’s prepping ‘series stacking’ will be most welcome.‘Series stacking’ means that the BBC’s top shows will be left online indefinitely, rather than being removed seven days after being aired. That means you can now watch a whole series, rather than having to guess what happened in the first couple of crucial episodes.For now, only 15 per cent of programmes are allowed to be stacked, with plans to review that figure early next year. Either way, this should raise the ire of bleating ISPs even more.What do you think? Is this a good thing for the iPlayer? Or has the BBC got an unfair advantage when it comes to video on demand? Let us know in the comments section.
