Adobe and the BBC Announce Strategic Relationship Around Web Video

The BBC and Adobe today announced a strategic relationship around the delivery of Web video. By adopting Flash Player software, the BBC will make its free service for downloading TV content—BBC iPlayer—available over the Internet. BBC iPlayer is cross platform, available for Macintosh, Linux and Windows.

The strategic relationship will also allow the BBC to provide a single consistent user experience for the majority of streamed video and audio content on their Web site.

One Response to Adobe and the BBC Announce Strategic Relationship Around Web Video

  1. The BBC repositories are an incredibly important resource, but the BBC’s original plans would have locked out Mac or Linux users. So this is great news… and a major coup for Adobe. Hopefully other content providers will consider cross-platform solutions too.
