Christmas day will see the formal launch of the BBC's long-awaited digital iPlayer.
In beta testing since July of this year, the BBC iPlayer will offer users the ability to watch programmes from the previous seven days. Downloaded programmes time out after 30 days.
The player requires Windows XP or Vista, though there are plans to launch a version for non-Windows users in the coming fortnight.
In due course the iPlayer will be enhanced to include radio content and the ability to view entire series, according to the BBC.
