BBC to Offer Videos Online?

The Independent reports on on-demand video content such as that provided by the iTunes Music Store. In less than 20 days, Apple announced they had sold more than 1 million videos. The question of a more extensive lineup remains.

The Independent reports that the BBC is planning to offer "most of its programming" available for customers:

In Britain the BBC is planning a similar service by making most of its programming available on platforms like the video ipod for seven days after it has been broadcast. The difference is the BBC programmes will be available for free. Their logic is that the public have already paid for the programmes through the licence fee and it would be unfair to make them pay again.

No details the specific form of distribution they've chosen.
