The BBC has unveiled BBC Store, a new digital service that allows users to buy and keep their favourite BBC programmes.
As of this morning, audiences will be able to visit bbcstore.com to register and start using the service.
Audiences will be able to watch the programmes they’ve bought from BBC Store on BBC iPlayer as their purchases will appear in the new My Programmes area of BBC iPlayer to play back in full.
They will also be able to access BBC Store directly from BBC iPlayer, to find, buy and watch BBC shows. BBC iPlayer will continue to offer the same range of programmes to watch live, catch up on and download for up to 30 days for free.
“The launch of BBC Store coincides with a significant milestone in the evolution of BBC iPlayer,” comments Dan Taylor-Watt, Head of BBC iPlayer, “the addition of ‘Places to buy’ links, enabling users to discover programmes to buy and keep and to watch BBC Store purchases back on iPlayer.”
