BBC Worldwide has struck a deal to make hundreds of hours of content available via the UK online video service blinkbox.
Popular titles on DVD, such as Top Gear, Gavin & Stacey, Spooks and Planet Earth, will cost users £1.89 (E2.19) an episode to download from which is still finalising what it will charge for full series.
Other BBC shows can be downloaded free but will carry ads. BBC Worldwide content will only be made available on blinkbox a minimum of 180 days after airing on TV.
