“Well, not really. Although they will now be given online access to content their licence fee has helped pay for, there are still fundamental inequities between users on different platforms, and this still leaves the BBC deforming the market in favour of Microsoft DRM and Windows. People on Macs, Linux, PDAs and other handheld devices are still losing out on all the features that make the downloadable iPlayer different from, say, the kind of streaming that the BBC has done for years with the RadioPlayer.”
Can someone explain to me what these “features that make the downloadable player different from the kind of streaming that the BBC has done for years” are?
Fact: As yet, we have no idea what features which the Flash-based catch up service will support. It could support every feature that the download service supports. So how can ORG categorically say that we’ll be missing out?
