iPlayer series stacking arrives on cable
The series stacking feature of BBC iPlayer is now available on Virgin's digital cable TV service.
A new "series catch up" option has been added to the iPlayer's cable home screen, bringing functionality that has been present on the web version of the content on demand system since September to cable. Multiple episodes of selected BBC series will be available on the cable iPlayer until seven days after the final episode has been broadcast on a linear BBC television channel.
Summerfield added that Virgin and the BBC's technology partner Red Bee Media "must also be recognised for their efforts in helping to sync all our systems to make BBC iPlayer on cable TV a reality".
