UK viewers and BBC fans from around the globe will
soon be able to watch their favorite British shows,

Shows like Doctor Who and EastEnders will be
available in their entirety one week after they
first air on TV.

"Our research suggests that classical music audiences would wish to download classical music programmes from the BBC and to listen to them on their terms, free at the point of use," he said.
