  • BBC’s Global iPlayer Heads To The iPhone, iPod touch

    BBC’s Global iPlayer Heads To The iPhone, iPod touch

    While not everyone would agree, I’m firmly of the belief that news (and most everything) sounds much better delivered in a British accent. The BBC’s new global iPlayer app, which has launched in more than 11 western European countries, offers up much more than just your daily news, but is chock-full of fun words like “arse,” “blimey,” and one of my… Read More

  • The BBC’s Entire Hour-Long Facebook Special Is Pulled From YouTube

    The BBC’s Entire Hour-Long Facebook Special Is Pulled From YouTube

    The BBC did an hour-long special on Facebook, including interviews with Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg, as well as cameos by Ron Conway, David Kirkpatrick, and others. The entire video is now on Youtube. Update: Well, that was fast. One version’s been pulled down, but more are popping up. It’s kind of funny to watch. “Even the Queen is on Facebook,” the… Read More

  • Tesla Sues BBC For Libel Claiming Top Gear Rigged Tests, BBC "will be vigorously defending"


    Top Gear fans? Remember the episode from a few years back where the crew tried to flog the Tesla Roadster? Yeah, it didn’t end so well for the Tesla after Clarkson started off praising the little electric supercar. The entire segment is embedded for your viewing enjoyment after the jump, but the skinny is that the Top Gear testers sort of died prematurely — a few times. The… Read More

  • Updated: Apple And The BBC To Co-Host iPad 2 Release Event?

    Let the speculation begin. The BBC is holding an event next week, on the same day and exactly the same time that iPad 2 is to be announced. The Apple event starts at 10am PST and the BBC event starts at 6pm GMT (which are exactly the same). If true, it looks like there could be some video chatting between the two companies from across the pond. Read More

  • BBC's New iPlayer App Gets A Hands-On

    We heard about the BBC’s new iPad app for the iPlayer service yesterday (Android users, be patient, it’s coming), but the player itself escaped description. Today brings a hands-on from Pocket-Lint, who pronounce the app very strong, though the lack of offline viewing, they say, is troublesome. Read More

  • BBC To Launch On-demand iPlayer App For Android And iPad

    We first heard about the BBC’s iPlayer a few years ago and for awhile it wasn’t doing too well. Then more and more people started catching on to the whole ‘watch TV on your own time’ thing, and iPlayer got really popular. I blame part of that on great shows like the UK Office and Top Gear UK — too bad the US counterparts aren’t as desirable. To keep… Read More

  • Top Gear USA To Have A Stig

    The much anticipated Top Gear USA debuts this fall on the History Channel, and until now, has lacked one important item: The Stig. That is until a new rumor has mention that there will be a Stig and the Stig will drive. Read More

  • The BBC Is Going To Wait This 3D TV Thing Out For Just A Little Bit Longer

    The Beeb: not a fan of 3D TV. Well, not a fan of the confusion surrounding its deployment. The BBC, in a recent interview, said that it’s not sure which direction 3D TV is heading, so it cannot commit to anything, much less a full deployment, any time soon. Read More

  • How publishers are trying to kill off publicly-owned tech media outlets

    It’s a trend that is highly unlikely to happen in the US due to its ubiquitous privatization of, well, everything. However in good old Europe, where control of the media is often under the hood of governmental institutions such as the BBC in the UK, or ARD in Germany, on the one hand, and in the hands of private media companies on the other, problems can arise. More recently this has… Read More
