So, not content with turning the entire population into a bunch of streaming addicts with iPlayer, the BBC has decided to give its ISP–crippling service a facelift.The new version, which goes into beta tomorrow, brings in on–demand radio content, which was previously available in a separate section of Auntie’s vast online emporium.The Beeb’s man, Erik Huggers, says this is a “natural evolution” for the service.
