BBC: FORWARD-THINKING, AGAIN

BBC TV channels to be put on net
The BBC's TV channels will be made available on the internet, BBC Director General Mark Thompson has confirmed.

"It should make it easier for users to find the content they want whenever and wherever they want it," Mr Thompson said.

They're also working on making clips available for mobile phones, and letting people buy music through the MyBBCPlayer. American public media needs to be thinking along these same lines. One big hurdle is rights clearances, of course. PBS and friends better be working on it now to stay relevant.
