BBC iPlayer exceeds 100 million download requests in one month

Recently, the BBC announced the iPlayer, their on-demand service to watch BBC television programming broke 100 million requests for programs in a month, for the first time.

This is exciting news because in 2007 we started to collaborate with the BBC and they rolled out Flash to deliver web video. Then, in 2008 the BBC introduced the BBC iPlayer for the Desktop using Adobe AIR. The desktop application allows viewers in the UK to watch their favorite BBC shows, online or offline. In a short period of time, the BBC was able to rollout the technology and get huge returns.

Congratulations BBC, what a great way to start off the new year!
