The BBC and Adobe® Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE), today announced a strategic relationship around the delivery of Web video. By adopting Adobe® Flash® Player software, the BBC will make its free catch-up TV service — BBC iPlayer —available as a streaming service across Macintosh and Linux®, as well as Windows®, by the end of the year. 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 www.bbc.co.uk.
