BBC pilots iPlayer sharing with Telegraph
December 15, 2008
The BBC is planning to share some of its content with the Telegraph Media Group in a deal that could see the iPlayer video catch-up service embedded on the Telegraph.co.uk website. Described by the BBC as a “non-exclusive pilot scheme”, the content-sharing venture could eventually be rolled out to other newspaper groups as part of the corporation’s plans to create new partnerships with other media organisations. Reports say that TMG approached the BBC about a deal to share content that could lead to an embedded iPlayer service on the Telegraph's TV reviews page.
