BBC Trust gives initial approval to BBC on-demand service
Some conditions have been imposed on the new service, for example tough rules on making classical music available via the service, and a 30 day limit on downloading and viewing video content rather than the original 13 weeks for some content that was planned. The main part of the service will be the ability to view via the iPlayer interface shows from the last seven days.
A two month long public consultation process has been started to allow interested parties to voice any concerns, which includes the general public. For details on how to take part in the consultation process visit the BBC Trust website.
