UK viewers and BBC fans from around the globe will soon be able to watch their favorite British shows, following an approval from all necessary parties. Shows like Doctor Who and EastEnders will be available in their entirety one week after they first air on TV.

A beta version of BBC's iPlayer opened up earlier this year, and over 10,000 people responded. The UK will be the first to actually be able to download shows, but rollout to other countries thereafter is inevitable.The director general of the BBC, Mark Thompson, harked especially on the fact that the service will be completely free. "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.
